The NETNode RM is the 5th generation of DTC’s NetNode IP Mesh radio family, building on 15 years of end user feedback.

Conceived for dual mobile/stationary use in crewed/uncrewed vehicles and as a fixed-site infrastructure node, the RM’s highly practical and robust form factor allows long-term installation in almost any location under even the most extreme conditions.

RF power outputs ranging from 2W, 5W and up to the industry-leading 15W high power variant allow the RM to reliably cover previously unattainable ranges, perfectly suited to create ‘backbone’ coverage for an entire network or extreme range point to point links.

Four transmit/receive antenna ports giving diverse MIMO signalling means the RM offers DTC’s highest data rate of 87Mbps of real payload throughput, pushing signals beyond line of sight even in complex RF environments.

The component parts of the NetNode RM radios are available as OEM bare boards for platform integration.

The NETNode RM's deliberately simple form factor, rugged construction and refined ergonomics mean that one radio can be employed in a multitude of different use cases - the RM is equally viable permanently installed on a rooftop, mounted inside or outside a mobile asset or fulley integrated into an unmanned ground vehicle. Diverse connectivity connections and protocols allow the RM to be used equally well as an on the move voice communications radio as an infrastructure node permanently integrated with other data bearer systems.

RF Performance

The NetNode RM incorporates 4 antenna ports working in both transmit and receive mode allowing a multitude of different antenna configurations. Antennas can be manually installed in offset arrays, as panels facing in multiple directions or as a single MIMO solution.

With smart sensing, the RM is able to detect degraded antenna performance and automatically fail-over to a reduced capacity mode, ensuring that communications remain up even in the event of physical damage to the antenna array.

Coupled with the RM’s 15W of output power, this means communications can reach farther and be relied upon in the most austere conditions.


With its small form factor and designed for environmental resistance, the RM is suitable for installation both as a mobile and fixed site system, employed in terrestrial, airborne and maritime environments.

Are there sources online for more information about your products?

All our products are featured on the website with datasheets and brochures where relevant. In addition, we have a Resource Library which contains datasheets, technical notes, brochures and other product information. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, please contact your local Codan Support centre.

What are the power requirements for your radios?

The majority of Codan radios are designed for 12 V DC nominal operation, with relatively low power consumption. This allows direct operation from vehicular, storage battery or solar sources. We also supply adaptors and mains power supplies allowing operation from wide-range DC inputs, or universal (100-240 V AC nominal) mains. Our high power amplifiers require mains power to operate.
