Low Latency Modem Platform

Low latency transceiver for point-to-point communications with user-controlled bandwidth and frequency of operation

Interface systems, custom designs, and full integration support available

Powering the world’s fastest data links

Flexibility and speed – capable of meeting your current and future needs
Per Vices has extensive experience building low latency modem systems for turnkey, point-to-point operation with additional offerings of assisting with initial link establishment. Our solutions offer the flexibility of trade-offs between reliability, latency, and throughput which can be configured based on your specific needs. Our systems are being used by organizations powering the lowest latency point-to-point wireless links available.

Our platforms can be designed to meet specific customer requirements associated with form factor, connector type, RF filtering and much more. These systems can use our stock Crimson TNG platform as a base for a system capable of meeting and exceeding customer requirements for low latency applications.

With the option of on-board data storage and the flexibility and adaptability provided by the FPGA and DSP resources, Per Vices platforms make it easy to change protocols, modify algorithms, and analyze trends in data.
