Q: What frequency does Eos broadcast at?
A: Eos broadcasts in the 2.4GHz frequency band. EOS “effectively" eliminates interference with 2.4 GHz cordless phones, microwave ovens and wireless IEEE 802.11b/g/n networks by combining digital 2.4 GHz adaptive frequency hopping spread spectrum technology with our proprietary technology enabling the transmitters to search for open channels in order to avoid interference from and to other 2.4 GHz devices.
Q: How does Eos avoid interference from other devices on that frequency?
A: Eos uses proprietary Digital Spread Spectrum (DSS) Technology that is constantly navigating the band looking for clear channels to broadcast in. Should interference be encountered, any missed packets are retransmitted to the receivers.
Q: How many receivers can be linked to an Eos base station/transmitter?
A: The Eos base station/transmitter can broadcast signal to up to 4 wireless satellite receivers.
