Norcross, GA, September 1, 2015 – Leica Geosystems, manufacturer of the Leica Viva GNSS Unlimited series and GS14 GNSS receiver, has taken the next step in GNSS innovation by adding a new hybrid communication technology to what is already widely recognized as the most compact and powerful GNSS smart antenna. The latest generation Leica Viva GS14 GNSS now supports Verizon CDMA solutions along with all standard 2G/3G networks and UHF TX/RX radio in a single device, making it the only professional GNSS receiver with all three communication systems built in. Users simply slide in their SIM card to experience instant connectivity for faster and easier field communications and SmartNet RTK corrections.
One solution for many communication systems
The world of GNSS receiver technology is constantly changing. Not only are navigation satellite systems frequently updated, but communication technologies are equally dynamic. Unique in the industry, the Leica Viva GS14 3.75G&UHF supports 2G GPRS, 3G HSPa+, CDMA (EV DO) and UHF TX/RX radio between 450 and 470 MHz in one compact housing. Professionals can choose whether they want to use the UHF radio to transmit or receive work, a 2G/3G cellular network, or Verizon CDMA. No external equipment is required.
“The Leica Viva GS14 with its hybrid communication technology is the most advanced compact GNSS receiver in the market,” said Bernhard Richter, Leica Geosystems GNSS business director. “The addition of CDMA modem capability in a unique all-in-one design offers unmatched flexibility in communication choices.”
The Leica Viva GS14 3.75G&UHF is available today throughout the United States. Ordering information and details are available from all authorized U.S. Leica Geosystems representatives and dealers.
