Multi-Network Communications Device from GE
HUNT VALLEY, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 1, 2014--
Wireless Infrastructure, a division of TESSCO
Technologies Incorporated (NASDAQ: TESS), announces the Ventev
Deployment Kit for the GE MDS™ Orbit Platform. The
factory-direct Deployment Kit includes all of the components needed to
deploy, power, and protect the GE MDS Orbit Platform, allowing
industrial SCADA, wireless backhaul, and broadband communications users
to quickly deploy the Orbit and virtually eliminate installation errors.
The MDS Orbit Platform is GE’s next-generation wireless communications
solution that integrates cellular, private, licensed and unlicensed
networks in one device, delivering secure communication between field
crews and industrial equipment, and bringing valuable asset and
operational data from the field to the operations center. Ventev’s
Deployment Kit contains fully integrated, plug-and-play enclosures,
batteries, cabling, mounts, antennas for the public cellular networks,
lightning arrestors, grounding protection, and weatherproofing
components. The Deployment Kit can be ordered in three variations: LTE
and Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi only, or LTE only. For convenience, the MDS Orbit
platform can be purchased through TESSCO Technologies, and
factory-installed into the Deployment Kit prior to delivery.
“The most significant benefit of the preconfigured Ventev Deployment Kit
is that all components work together and almost all are fully integrated
into the enclosure, ensuring that minimal assembly is required,”
explains Jeff Lime, Vice President of Ventev Wireless Infrastructure.
“This helps to reduce issues in the field and allows for faster
deployments. Customers order just one part number and all the necessary
components to deploy, power, and protect the GE MDS Orbit arrive at
for more information about the Ventev Deployment Kits and to browse the
entire ecosystem of products surrounding the GE MDS Orbit platform.
Ventev products are exclusively available through TESSCO Technologies (www.tessco.com).
