RipEX is a best-in-class radio modem renowned for overall data throughput. This Software Defined Radio with Linux OS is a native IP device which has been designed with attention to detail, performance and quality. All relevant state-of-the-art concepts have been carefully implemented.

RipEX provides 24/7 reliable service for mission-critical applications like SCADA & Telemetry for Utilities, SmartGrid power networks or any packet network.

Different protocols on Radio channel are optimized for different applications: Fully Transparent, Flexible for meshing networks providing unlimited footprint coverage without base stations, or even the sophisticated Base driven protocol optimized for TCP/IP applications like IEC104 making them reliable and stable even with a high number of RTU’s.

Thanks to the web interface anybody with basic IP knowledge is capable of starting up RipEX within a few minutes and can maintain the network quite easily.

Take the opportunity to remotely access and test a live RipEX network. Contact us for access details.


Native IP device

  • Bridge mode – Packets received on any interface are broadcast to the respective interfaces on all units. Additionally, packets received on COM are broadcast to both COM1 and COM2 at remote sites, allowing you to connect 2 RTU’s to each remote unit.
  • Router mode – RipEX works as a standard IP Router with 2 interfaces (Radio and Ethernet) and 2 COM port devices without any compromise. There is an option of two protocols on Radio channel: Flexible – unlimited anti-collision meshing without base stations or Base driven where all packet transmissions are managed by the local base station.

Differences overview


  • Transparent network
  • Collisions are not resolved on Radio channel=> Suitable for master-slave polling
  • Repeater(s) is possible

Router Compared to Bridge, Router mode has got these additional features:

IP specialities

  • Terminal server
    – 5 independent sessions
    – encapsulates serial protocol to TCP(UDP) and vice versa
    – eliminates a transfer of TCP overhead over Radio channel
    – suitable for IP and serial RTU’s combination within one network
  • TCP proxy
    – converts TCP into UDP and vice versa
    – TCP run only locally between connected device and RipEX on LAN
    – only payload (user) data are transferred over Radio channel
    – i.e. less traffic on Radio channel, no more problems with TCP timeouts
  • ARP proxy
    – RipEX can mimic any IP address (typically RTU behind the Radio channel)
    – suitable for RTU’s without routing capabilities within the same subnet
  • Subnets
    – any number of virtual Ethernet interfaces
    – IP aliases – any number of IP addresses on the Ethernet interface
  • VLAN
    – any number of VLANs assigned to Subnets
    – RipEX management can be done over VLAN




Data speed & throughput

  • 166 kbps / 50 kHz
  • 83 kbps / 25 kHz
  • 42 kbps / 12.5 kHz
  • 21 kbps / 6.25 kHz
  • Maximum possible while maintaining communication reliability in NLOS environment
  • Radio protocol overhead – min. Rx/Tx switching time, synchronization, headers
  • Optimization – embedded optimization triples throughput on the Radio channel
  • TCP proxy, Terminal servers – eliminates TCP overhead transfer over-the-air
  • Stream mode – transmitting starts immediately on the Radio channel, without waiting for the end of the received frame on COM => zero latency
  • Auto-speed – receiver is automatically adjusted to the data rate of the incoming frame

RipEX settings

Operating Mode
Channel spacing [kHz]
Modulation rate [kbps]


Use our calculations for a simplistic overview of RipEX network performance. RipEX settings are common for both independent parts – Payload bitrate and Netwok performance. Payload bitrate gives you a quick and easy idea of the possible bitrate in the RipEX network. Network performance is the more robust and detailed option. See the details in respective helps.

Payload bitrate 

Based on this calculation, one can see the effect packet length has on the resulting bitrate. Since the RipEX radio protocol overhead per packet is fixed, the longer the user data are, the higher the payload bitrate.

 Average message size bytes
User data size without any headers (IP, TCP, UDP, …).
 Payload bitrate kbps
The payload bitrate in kbps. Since RipEX uses customized IP packet on the Radio channel, payload bitrate includes 28 bytes of IP packet overhead – 20B IP header and 8B UDP header. This calculation assumes using the UDP as the Layer 4 protocol. If you are using TCP, the resulting bitrate would be lower due to higher TCP overhead – you can use our TCP proxy functionality to optimize the communication (see the Manual).
 One-hop forwarding time msec
The average time in milliseconds to transmit a single packet between two RipEX units.

Network performance 

Network performance calculation is intended to give you a quick performance overview based on several basic parameters.

 Total Number of sites
Number of RipEX units in the network. The minimum number of RipEX units is three (including the local unit). The calculations work with collision probabilities in the report-by-exception type of networks and are mainly intended for networks with many (> 5) units.
 Average hops per path to remote
Average hop count to the remote sites. E.g. 9 remote stations directly connected to the center (one radio hop) and one remote station over one repeater (two radio hops) results in 1.1.
Average message size 
User data size without any headers (IP, TCP, UDP, …).
center => remote bytes
remote => center bytes
Interface speed 
Ethernet interface speed or the baud rate [bps] for the serial (COM) interface. Using TCP instead of UDP lowers the total network capacity due to the higher TCP overhead (ETH – UDP/IP and serial options are equal.
Processing time 
Time for the RTUs / SCADA devices to process queries.
center msec
remote msec

Polling Cycle (Single master)

 Average RTT per remote msec
Round Trip Time (RTT) is the time required for a packet to travel from the source (SCADA center) to the destination (remote RTU) and back again.
 Total polling cycle sec
The time required for the master (SCADA center) to poll all slaves (remote RTUs) one by one and to receive their responses.

Mesh mode 

In mesh type networks, all radio modems can access each other randomly and spontaneously. Mesh networks can also host polling or report-by-exception applications, even in several instances.
 Total IP network capacity bytes/sec
Total network capacity in bytes per second (includes IP packet overhead). The resulting number refers to the maximum number in the optimally designed RipEX network. The more hops per path, the less overlap, and consequently more capacity left for simultaneous transmissions from different remotes. That is the reason for a higher capacity with more hops in the network. Nevertheless, that figure can be fully used only when there is a significant portion of communication load among the remotes themselves, or from remotes to e.g. local concentrators. When all messages have eventually to reach the single master station over the same radio channel, any calculation of total network capacity loses its sense, for obvious reasons. Certainly such a "central radio bottleneck" can (and should) be eliminated by e.g. adding extra channels or wire connections to dominant repeaters or bypass dominant repeaters using more radio hops. Generally, every network employing narrowband radios requires "capacity-aware design".
Note: Total network capacity assumes that all radios in the network operate on the same RF channel.
 Total application network capacity bytes/sec
Total network capacity in bytes per second, but no IP packet overhead is included.
 Average message delivery time msec
Average time required for a message to be successfully delivered within the RipEX network in the report-by-exception mode (i.e. from the center to the remote unit).
