Harris RF-7800W-IU200 Network Interface Unit (NIU)

The Harris RF-7800W-IU200 Network Interface Unit (NIU) extends communications range during rapid deployment scenarios. The unit supports a wide range of AC or DC input voltages and connects up to four Harris RF-7800W HCLOS radios.

Rugged power and Ethernet interface for RF-7800W HCLOS radio systems

Front panel LEDs allow real-time monitoring of radio signal strength and data quality. Network outages are minimized with automatic failover to a backup radio link. The system delivers secure voice communications with other networked NIUs through a standard headset. VoIP services are extended through an embedded Session Initiation Protocol call manager. The NIU’s Power over Ethernet and a fiber optic connection keeps users connected while separated from their communications equipment at distances up to 2 km.

Key benefits

  • VoIP connectivity and simple push-to-talk voice communication between NIUs on the network
  • Real-time monitoring of signal and data quality
  • Seamless failover to secondary backup prevents critical data loss
  • Remote networking up to 2 km from unit
