Narrow Band eXtension
The NBX-R1000RF is based on the NBX platform,
a state-of-the-art LPWAN repeater system with a flexible and powerful
WHAT IS A
The NBX-R1000RF is a high-performance macro repeater which can be tower mounted or desktop mounted. With a capacity to repeat over 700k messages per day the NBX-R1000RF has SSR (Smart Sigfox Repeat), an advanced machine learning algorithm which substantially reduces repetitions of messages from devices that are already within Sigfox network coverage or coverage from another NBX repeater.
SSR, combined with APA (Auto Power Adjustment) significantly increases useable capacity and reduces spectrum noise, a typical problem with most repeaters.
WHY IS IT A GREAT TOOL?
The NBX-R1000RF can be used either as an urban infill/densification tool, or a rural coverage extension tool. Due to leading RF sensitivity, machine learning and a choice of antenna systems, the NBX-R1000RF can be placed anywhere indoors or outdoors with little or no configuration necessary. Both Uplink AND Downlink messages are automatically repeated. A sub 5W power consumption and no IP connectivity requirement means that the NBX-R1000RF can be cost effectively installed virtually anywhere with off-grid solar.
TARGET USE CASES
Densification for metering contracts or facilities management, Urban RF hole fixing, rural and road extension coverage, and agricultural/forest areas. Sites where power/backhaul is expensive/difficult.
The NBX-R1000RF can also be configured a DAS equivalent solution. In this mode, one NBX-R1000RF is set to operate as a Master repeater, controlling other NBX-R1000RF repeaters connected locally via Ethernet and configured as slaves. The future NBX Mini and Pico will also function as slaves. This can serve as a solution to cover multiple underground levels, tunnels, dense/large corporate structures or campuses.
