Tropos Wireless Connection at Near Supersonic Speeds

While most Tropos customers using mobile routers don't travel in vehicles that get anywhere near supersonic speeds (or couldn't even if they wanted to), its truly a testament to the engineering behind Tropos' solutions that even while travelling 500 mph, a wireless connection is maintained. Check out today's press release about the North American Eagle trials underway this week in which a Tropos 4210 mobile router mounted inside a super powered vehicle, synchronizes computer systems on board with a mobile command center. Other than speed, a few other challenges during the field trial include -- high vibration, high temperatures, constantly changing signal strength, and volitile power. Truly harsh conditions and Tropos' realiability and resiliency shines through!
