What is OpenSky

 

OpenSky is a wireless communication system, developed by a team of M/A-COM Inc., now a division of Tyco International's Electronics unit. OpenSky received the direct attention of Tyco when they acquired it along with Amp Corporation. The technology was originally developed for Federal Express in mid 1990s for its urban operations. The technology was developed to meet the requirement of higher message data speed compared to its previous system. It was initially designed as a wireless data system but the system can support both voice and data services. OpenSky technology applies voice-over-IP transport to radio communications applications in a unique architecture.

 


Spectrum Utilization

 

OpenSky utilizes TDMA with 4 (four) time slots to support both voice and data. The four time slots can be used for both voice and data simultaneously or can be aggregated to support 19.2 kbps throughput on a 25 KHz channel.

 


Frequency Band

 

Frequency bands for OpenSky products that are typically found in the market today:

  • 700/800 Band

  • AMPS Band
