CFIP Marathon II


Perfect solution for industrial applications where fiber is not available

CFIP Marathon 300 MHz / 1.4 GHz point-to-point long-haul microwave system is the perfect solution for industrial applications where fiber is not available. Primarily designed for remote and rural areas Marathon Full Indoor Unit can establish a link in adverse weather conditions and over long distances, frequently exceeding 100 km. SAF Tehnika Marathon solution is particularly recommended for utility (electricity, water), oil & gas, public safety, and transport companies who are looking for reliable data & voice transmission.

Highlights & Benefits

Propagation Advantage Utilization

Marathon Full Indoor Unit can establish a link in adverse weather conditions and near non-line-of-sight situations. It is perfectly suitable for long distance links in mountainous areas and over-water paths.

High link performance

Powerful radio coupled with industry leading modem that supports ACM, ATPC, up to 128QAM modulation with high system gain, ensuring up to 43Mbps Ethernet and 12E1 capacity data transmission over long distance (100km+).

Advanced Ethernet functionality

Built-in managed Gigabit Ethernet switch that supports QoS, up to 4093 VLANs, STP allows Marathon II to be used in secure and self-healing network topologies – an exceptional feature for long-haul, low frequency full indoor radio system.

Low power consumption

Modern components and latest technologies applied in Marathon II make it the most energy efficient low frequency band radio currently on the market.

Easy and intuitive system management

User friendly WEB GUI with failure-safe remote site configuration saves time and decreases system configuration and link maintenance costs.

Maintenance Free Design

Market-unique fanless cooling system and all indoor architecture makes Marathon II highly reliable and maintenance free digital microwave radio with ideal surge protection.
