Operators around the world share a common goal: to provide their customers with a great user experience. It’s what we refer to as app coverage - network performance from the user perspective. But to remain competitive, operators must be able to achieve this cost effectively. Microwave networks have a key role to play.
Increasing capacity needs
Advancements in microwave technology
Ever increasing capacities are just one area of microwave innovation. In addition to supporting more than 10 Gbps backhaul capacity over the microwave link, our portfolio also features 10 Gibabit Ethernet interfaces, support for advanced modulation schemes as well as advanced Ethernet and IP functionality. We also feature the worlds smallest high power radio unit using the traditional frequency bands (6-42 GHz) and E-band (70 and 80 GHz band) with other products supporting market leading capacity in E-band. And our new Multi-band Booster combines the best characteristics of different frequency bands to boost capacities and hop lengths for the microwave hop.
"Product reliability is the number-one criteria"
