High capacities over long distances
Long haul microwave solutions are used where there is a need for high capacities over relative long distances in rural and remote areas. Due to the cost efficiency of microwave products it is also increasingly used in areas where optical fiber technically can be an option, but the deployment of fiber would be more expensive.
MINI-LINK 6200, being a long haul system, can sustain high capacity further than a shorthaul system. Thus you can combine the two, using multi-band booster, in a mutually beneficial effect: Jump further with short haul, get more capacity for long haul when spectrum availability is limited.

The long haul systems can enable capacities up to 10 Gbps per hop over up to 35 km.
It can also make very long hops, up to 200 km long with a lower capacity.
5G in the rural areas require high capacities over long distances, exactly what long haul delivers. So long haul is perfect match for bringing 5G out beyond the city.
Fiber can be costly to implement over large distances or across difficult terrain like high mountains, or a lake. Long haul can be a fast and cost efficient alternative.
