Harris unveils MBC-100 mobile subscriber device


Harris Corporation introduced the Harris MBC-100 mobile
subscriber device for high-bandwidth applications over 700 MHz LTE networks.

The MBC-100 provides first responders with the capability
for simultaneous use of high-bandwidth mobile applications, including secure
streaming live video feeds, access to public safety databases, mobile
productivity applications and geo-location information.


“The MBC-100 is a truly unique device for 700 MHz
LTE networks that enables a number of mission-critical applications for first
responders,” said George Helm, vice president, Harris Public Safety and
Professional Communications.


The MBC-100 sets a new industry standard for enhanced
throughput and mobile vehicle connectivity over LTE networks so that first
responders can maximize the potential of LTE network communications to their


The Harris MBC-100 delivers up to 18 Mbps of service to
LTE network subscribers for high-bandwidth applications.  It also delivers
128 bit encryption for secure voice and data communication while utilizing
industry-standard 3GPP Release 8 telecommunications requirements for 700 MHz
LTE networks.


These requirements mean that the MBC-100 is capable of
advanced LTE modulations including 2×2 Multiple Input/Multiple Output (MIMO)
that allows the device to boost network performance by utilizing two antennas
for the transmitter and receiver.


To support location-based services and situational
awareness functionality — both high-demand applications for law enforcement
the MBC-100 includes an internal GPS (Global Positioning System) receiver with
a customized user interface that provides access to the subscriber’s position.
The client is also built to rugged public safety
requirements and features a mechanically hardened case that is both
water-resistant and safe from electrical interference.


The MBC-100 connects easily to existing vehicle-mounted
computers through a single USB 2.0 connector for both power and data; an
optional external power connector can be used if needed.


The MBC-100 includes Windows and Linux drivers, which
allow existing data applications to establish network connectivity through the
