Also fully featured for local maintenance and configuration, the Ecreso FM 100W-2000W allow extensive remote control by Web server, SNMP, RS232 or GPIOs.

“We are committed to offering FM transmitters that always meet the highest quality standards and we hope the advanced features included in 1.9.0 will benefit network operators and broadcasters with easier maintenance, more control, and more savings.
