It utilises a spread-spectrum base modulation that is capable of demodulation with a 20 dB below noise level.This enables high sensitivity with robust network links, improves network efficiency and eliminates interference.
- Global increase of 5% in base modulation (currently 5%), to be applied in four stages : +2% in 2009 (ie 7% in total), +1% in 2010 (ie 8% in total), +1% in 2011 (ie 9% in total), +1% in 2012 (ie 10% in total).
