Dependable, Professional TV White Space and Microwave Solutions

Powerful. Affordable. Reliable. Plug-and-play. These are just a few of the many ways to describe Carlson's wireless microwave and UHF systems.

From the dependability and flexibility of our flagship Trailblazer to the raw speed and power of our award-winning LongHaul ST, Carlson products consistently push the limits of wireless communications.

Now with the advent of TV white-space technology, Carlson is blazing ahead once again with the RuralConnect, one of the first FCC certified TV white-space devices on the market.

Whether you need to replace a costly, unreliable leased line, extend an existing phone line or extend Ethernet connectivity, the Trailblazer is a professional, reliable, and affordable solution. Trailblazer microwave products include the Leased Line Replacement, Phone Line Extender or Hybrid.

Ultra-low, fixed latency: Thanks to Carlson's own TrueTDM™ technology, the Trailblazer has extremely low, fixed latency that makes this radio a customer favorite for simulcast and portable radio backhaul.


Professional-grade equipment: Trailblazer® is available in either a sturdy, indoor rackmount unit or a rock-solid outdoor unit with a NEMA 4X weatherproof enclosure that protects your connection even in the roughest weather.

Many frequencies available: Frequencies include licensed 4.9 GHz for public safety.

LH-TDM-MontageWhile other companies claim their IP radios can go the distance, only the LongHaul TDM uses Carlson's proprietary TrueTDM™ technology for wireline-quality signals at distances IP radios can't reach—60 miles and beyond. 

  • 100% Transparent: LongHaul TDM's unique plug-and-play interface makes it compatible with any voter/comparator system. You never have to worry about compatibility issues with your current or future equipment.

  • Optional Interface for T1/E1 Backhaul: Carlson's revolutionary SWiFT™ platform allows the LongHaul to operate as a point-to-point IP bridge without the signal degradation of a traditional Wi-Fi connection.

  • Crystal-Clear Connection: Our proprietary SWiFT platform, combined with the low latency of TrueTDM, eliminates packet collisions for an optimized connection that lets you enjoy carrier-class signal quality without the hassle of wires.

LongHaul™ ST Series

LH-ST-MontageWith high-speed connection, raw power and built-in routing tools, LongHaul ST provides everything you need for the most demanding applications. Carlson's LongHaul ST was voted Hot Product for 2011 by APCO's Public Safety Communications magazine.

  • High throughput for demanding applications: If you need to backhaul a large IP network, high-definition surveillance or other video, or if your application simply demands the highest speed and throughput, the ST can transmit at a rate of up to 270 MB/s over-the-air.
  • "Daisy-Chain" Capable for Extended Range: LongHaul ST's range can be extended dramatically—five, six, or even a dozen times— in a daisy-chain network configuration with no loss of signal strength.

  • Fine-tunable network settings: For WISPs, municipal governments, or anyone who needs the ability to control every aspect of their network, the extended graphic user interface (GUI) makes LongHaul ST a perfect choice.
