The Cambium RDB 350 is a military grade portable broadband radio, which allows field units to quickly and easily deploy broadband networks in remote areas and combat theaters. This design converges an IP-68 and Mil spec 810G compliant enclosure that can dissipate 60W of power with ergonomic features and design language that oozes modern military. The RDB 350 provides value through its “rapid deployment” features such as aggressive grab handles with integrated cord wraps for strain relief, which replace cumbersome cable pass-throughs. Easy access connectors and quick-mount pole attachments were also designed with limited exposure to enemy fire in mind. The enclosure was ergonomically designed and engineered to be used as a shrapnel shield to help keep our soldiers out of harms way. The ruggedness and reliability of the case design makes it a unique, high performance product in the fixed broadband market and a first in the military communications space.
