Octopus SDR Platform

SensorTec’s latest Octopus Software Defined Radio (SDR) platform has been designed using a state-of-the-art proprietary SDR technology specifically aimed at increasing link performance several-fold. Addressing challenges such as limited spectrum availability, growing interference and demands for yet more capacity, Spectrum 6 combines the best features from SensorTec’s well-proven MIMO 2×2 Link and Turbo families, as well as numerous cutting-edge wireless breakthroughs, to deliver unparalleled performance in all weather conditions. Spectrum 6 is based on the brand new Octopus SDR platform, making this family of PTP solutions fully future proof f thanks to efficient frequency spectrum usage, higher capacity and PHY, MAC and upper layer functionality support.


Spectrum 6 can be deployed in a diverse range of applications, from backhauling for Wi-Fi and small cell to CCTV and video-surveillance infrastructures. It can also provide Internet access to remote locations.

Top Facts

Superior performance and processing power

The combination of high transmit power even at higher modulations, and excellent receiver sensitivity allows to achieve high performance and radio link availability at long ranges.

Highest spectral efficiency

Consume 30% less spectrum for the same capacity. The Spectrum 6 performance reaches 650 Mbps that meets the needs of most last mile links, trunk channels of the light and medium networks.

Reliability & robustness

Guaranteed and stable connectivity even in the most adverse weather conditions, including extreme temperature ranges from -40 °C to +60 °C, thunderstorms and wind speeds of up to 160 km/h thanks to ruggedized aluminium cast IP66 and IP67 enclosure and built-in surge protection.

Wired integration support

Spectrum 6 could be integrated into existing optical networks thanks to second SFP port.

Ease of Installation

Quick and easy installation reduces field deployment costs and facilitates rapid service delivery.
