TropOS wireless broadband routers all utilize TropOS Mesh OS software. TropOS Mesh OS was designed from the ground up for efficient operations in both small and large networks plus the ability to easily scale as customers expand coverage area and/or add additional applications. Today, TropOS networks are relied upon for mission critical applications that span hundreds of square miles.
The core of TropOS Mesh OS is the patented Predictive Wireless Routing Protocol (PWRP). PWRP is designed to easily scale to thousands of mesh nodes. As incremental routers are added to the network they instantly talk to adjacent TropOS routers, expanding coverage and capacity. Unlike typical routers that rely on complicated routing tables for routing decisions and eventually consume significant available bandwidth as the network grows, PWRP never exceeds 5% of available network bandwidth -- regardless of network size. Only TropOS Mesh OS, with PWRP, can deliver the essential scalability necessary to build large-scale private outdoor wireless networks used for utility, oil and gas, mining and many other industrial applications.
SuprOS, is a powerful, comprehensive wired and wireless network management system that manages all ABB communication networks, including TropOS, as a single system. It offers IT staff network wide visibility and enables them to perform many key functions remotely, including over-the-air configuration changes and updates of TropOS Mesh OS software. From SuprOS, IT can manage and have visability into ABB Wireless products: TropOS mesh networks, TeleOS and ArcheOS PTP/PTMP narrowband nodes and MicrOS broadband wired clients. Select, broadband PTP/PTMP radios from Cambium and Redline can also be managed by SuprOS, in addition to ABB AFS Ethernet switches and AFR Ethernet routers.
SuprOS delivers unprecedented centralized visibility into network health, performance and usage statistics. It offers high-level dashboards and the ability to drill down deeper into the data for specific details. An extensive array of reports is available and data can be exported into a CSV file for further analysis.
SuprOS is an essential element in any ABB communication network deployment, streamlining and minimizing costs of deployment, optimization, operation, and maintenance.
TropOS routers are based on the TropOS wireless broadband mesh architecture and are field-proven, incorporating scalability, high reliability and performance, plus strong security essential for applications across many industries.
