There have been a series of emerging developments and standards of native Ethernet technology that give Ethernet the features of a ‘packet transport’ technology for public networks, meaning it can handle data from multiple sources and keep them from colliding or getting sent to the wrong destinations. The increasing dominance of Internet Protocol (IP) and Ethernet allows networks to converge and overall services, from business, residential and mobile customers, to expand.

In the case of such network radio transmitters and receivers, spares may be required to fix damaged systems devices, upgrade for changing network connections or expand to deal with multiport devices transmitting on a common network. Native Ethernet is designed to handle these upgrades inherently but the technology may not be readily available in the devices at hand.
Native Ethernet radios allow for point-to-multipoint network establishment, allowing several units to have access to data along a secured mobile network. These are built for long range and bandwidth, common for the amount of data flowing between network nodes. These radios are IP addressable with remote configuration and diagnostic tools. They can handle several IP addresses at once so, they’re highly sophisticated, multi-functional devices.
Depending on the model you use, the parts for these devices range from power cables to RF scanners and transmitters, Ethernet links, channel nodes, dials and LED displays. Many parts are replaceable and can be purchased from Ethernet parts distributors. Very few items can be obtained from consumer electronics suppliers.
The most important item that can be acquired is the firmware and corresponding drivers that allow the data to be read. Most control boards can be purchased completed, the way one might buy a hard drive or processing unit, however, they are often customized to the unit or the level of bandwidth required.
SingleSource Communications offers up radio antennas ranging in frequency, database drivers and material. For example, antennas can be directional (point-to-point) or omni-directional (point-to-multipoint):
- Antenna, Yagi (uni-directional), 900 MHz, 6.5 dBd, N Female (example 1)
- ?Antenna, Omni, 900 MHz, 6 dBd, Fiberglass, N Female (example 2)
Spare parts for Antenna cables and wireless antennae are also available for a multitude of ranges and specifications.
More so, spares for surge suppressors exist to keep the Ethernet radio from overloading from the number of network points connected to it. There are also spares for the Ethernet cables themselves, whether wired or wireless. Those vary with the 4- or 5-pin Euro models:
Or the M12/RJ45 Industrial Ethernet hookups:
Regardless of the means for your spare parts needs, SingleSource Communications can get you up and running a multipoint Ethernet radio to its full functionality. We also handle upgrades, additions, and repairs to you’re your systems in place without disruption.
