MDS™ Orbit MCR-900
A Flexible 900MHz Unlicensed Router
for Cost Effective Industrial Deployments
GE’s MDS Orbit MCR-900 is a high performing 900MHz unlicensed wireless router. It is built on GE’s
MDS extensive experience in wireless industrial communications and uses proprietary state-of-the-art
Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) algorithms to offer low latency networking in the 900MHz
unlicensed spectrum with effective interference avoidance.
The MDS Orbit MCR-900 allows for traditional point to multipoint deployments for SCADA and other
industrial applications. In addition, its integrated routing, switching, Quality of Service (QoS) and
security as well as the support for a variety of wireless technologies and topologies position it as a true
convergence and OPEX-saving platform in industrial M2M networks.
The MDS Orbit MCR-900 supports additional wireless technologies including global 3G (AT&T), 4G LTE,
and Wi-Fi to allow for compatibility in a variety of design scenarios.
• High performance interference avoidance and very low latency 900MHz technologies along with
advanced Quality of Service functionalities enable determinism for critical and industrial applications
• Support for a variety of network topologies, integrated routing and switching in addition to
simultaneous cellular uplinks effectively extend industrial networks into rural and Field Area Networks
• A holistic cyber security framework protects the users, the network and assets and allows operators to
meet stringent government and corporate cyber security requirements
• Rugged durable design, wide temperature range and low power consumption provide deployment life
extension in the harshest of environments while protecting CAPEX investment
