The RF Neulink NL6000 wireless data modem sets new standards for the wire less mobile and telemetry industry. The modem and VHF or UHF transceiver are enclosed in one package. NL6000 radio channel data rates exceed typical Land Mobile Radio (LMR) frequency standards while maintaining radio channel ability.

Through RF Neulink's implementation of error detection, correction and spectral precoding, the effects of adverse environmental conditions has been significantly reduced. To the user, this provides improved system reliability and coverage while maintaining a high data rate.

Due to several advanced signal processing techniques which correct for limitations of typical land mobile radios at high data rates. As a result of improved receiver sensitivity and forward error correction, the NL6000 exhibits outstanding radio channel performance. The NL6000 is ideal for any system where high performance, increased data rates, and compact size are a requirement.
