Compact, all-outdoor packet solution for 4G/LTE backhaul

September 07, 2011 // By Jean-Pierre Joosting
Ceragon Networks Ltd., has released the FibeAir® IP-10C, a compact, all-outdoor, high-capacity wireless packet backhaul solution — as the latest member of the widely deployed FibeAir IP-10 family. This integrated, ultra-compact solution delivers up to 1 Gbps of IP traffic on a single radio channel. Able to withstand harsh weather conditions, the low-power, environmentally sound backhaul unit is easily mounted on rooftops, lamp posts, traffic light poles, and in small outdoor mobile cell-sites.

Current infrastructure is burdened by an unprecedented increase in high-speed data services on smart phones and other hand-held devices. In emerging markets, the addition of millions of new mobile subscribers puts further strain on mobile operators — requiring them to quickly and cost efficiently deploy new sites for high-capacity networks and expand existing networks. Affordable, efficient and comprehensive backhaul is an absolute necessity — and the FibeAir IP-10C brings mobile and private network operators a welcome relief. It is an excellent match for IP/MPLS backhaul in 3.5G and 4G/LTE networks.

Key features include up to 1 Gbps of IP traffic on a single radio channel, asymmetric traffic delivery for higher download capacities, complete range of frequencies from 6 to 42 GHz, a wide range of channels that extend from 3.5 to 56 MHz, adaptive coding and modulation for increased spectrum usage, and increased backhaul capacity

Easy to install, the low power FibeAir IP-10C features a compact size and all-outdoor design for easy tower, rooftop or pole-mount installation. It also offers service support with stringent SLA (service level agreement), as well as simplified network design and maintenance for reduced CAPEX and OPEX
