RidgeWave® 6900R21

LTE-A Pro CBRS Outdoor Router

BEC RidgeWave® 6900R21 front

The RidgeWave® BEC 6900R21 is a High-Power LTE CAT B CPE-CBSD delivering robust connectivity for CBRS B48 commercial deployments. The 6900R21 is an LTE CAT 12 UE supporting carrier aggregation up to 3 CA DL / 2CA uplink, with a high gain 15dBi 4X4 MIMO directional antenna. CBRS  deployments with the 6900R21 will experience increased capacity, higher throughput, and extended coverage. Unique to BEC devices are GORE® Vents for pressure equalization, humidity, and airflow, this accompanied with lighting/ESD Protection and the IP68/UL 50E enclosure ensure protection against dirt, harmful ingress of water, humidity and extreme temperatures for years of dependable operation.

The RidgeWave® BEC 6900R21 integrates seamlessly with BECentral®, BEC’s proven cloud-based remote management as a complete solution for managing large-scale UE deployments. Administrators can remotely provision, monitor, upgrade, and troubleshoot devices from a single centralized location in real-time. For CAF II or other ETC support recipients, BECentral® fully supports scheduling, testing, report generation, and submission for FCC Performance Measures.
