Streakwave Announces New Product Line - RF Armor

RF Armor, LLC is a producer of Carrier Class RF shielding products designed for the Ubiquiti (UBNT) MIMO product line to help reduce the front to back noise ratio, eliminate collocation interference, greatly reduce foreign/hostile interference, allow for better channel planning, and protect the Rocket and Jumpers from the debris, pests and other elements. The RF Armor line substantially improves performance by providing a lower noise floor with higher sustainable air rates with fewer errors. Featuring marine-grade aluminum, their shield kits have been created with both durability and quality in mind to last throughout the years. - See more at:

Here’s what customers are saying about RF Armor:

"We got a 3 dB signal improvement with this shielding kit, higher data rate and most important the clients bandwidth doubled."

"I couldn't believe how well made these things are made, Is a super good fit and make for a really sturdy mount, Oh and it's also good at blocking out other RF's, well worth it."

"Like some others, I have to admit I was slightly skeptical about these units when I first heard about them two years ago. However, since using them we will never go back. They definitely reduce noise, boost the operational efficiency of the sectors, and protect the radio and connectors from the weather. Highly recommend!"

Streakwave Webinars is pleased to present a product and technology overview of Tycon Power Solutions. This Webinar will look at creative ways to add power solutions to broadband wireless, IP Security and Surveillance, and a range of wireless applications. 

Tycon Power specializes in solutions involving multiple power options such as solar, wind, battery and PoE. By engineering the right solution, applications can be placed in the field where little or no primary power sources may be available or financially viable to bring to the site. 

Tycon Power and Streakwave will examine the requirements for power, ways to deploy, solutions, and products available. Do you need a remote power solution? Perhaps a way to supplement power choices? Do you want a self-contained IP Security System, hotspot, backhaul, digital signage, or other solution and need a way to integrate power solutions, consider Tycon Power choices.

Tycon offers products in a wide range of voltages and for differing power demand needs. You may need simple back-up or have more complex power needs. Your site may be remote or just inaccessible in a very populated area. Learn some of the choices and typical applications that can be deployed.
