Communications networks used by these entities therefore must also offer high reliability, including multiple redundant communications pathways to ensure no single point of failure. The TropOS mesh architecture is self-organizing and automatically reroutes around failed nodes, providing built-in resilience. In addition, the ability to simultaneously leverage multiple frequency bands (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz) and to failover between, them further ensures that localized interference on any one frequency band does not interfere with reliable operation.
Battery backup protection options allow TropOS mesh routers to continue to operate for up to 12 hours or longer in the absence of line power. Dynamic channel selection, adaptive noise immunity and other advanced RF resource management techniques provide additional resiliency. For potentially hazardous environments, TropOS offers specialized products certified for use in Class I, Division 2 (US) and Class I, Zone 2 (US and Canada) hazardous locations.
