Millimeter Wave

70-80GHz

Up to 9.7Gbps in up to 2000MHz bandwidth per radio

APPLICATIONS
The Flex4G-10000 system supports any application where fiber capacity is the primary requirement including:

  • Fiber extension/replacement/backup
  • 3G/4G backhaul and seamless transition to 5G
  • Shared networks
  • Mobile fronthaul
  • WAN/LAN connectivity
  • Disaster recovery
  • Video surveillance

The Flex4G-10000 is an E-band (70/80GHz) millimeter wave system that delivers up to 9.7Gbps capacity, 256 bit AES encryption for highest data security, and the highest system gain in the industry to ensure maximum throughput at the longest distances. The Flex4G-10000 offers mobile network operators a much lower cost alternative to fiber in macro/cell backhaul and fronthaul for Centralized Radio Access (C-RAN) networks, supporting up to CPRI Mode 7 (9830.4Mbps), while offering ISPs, enterprises, and government agencies a much lower cost alternative to fiber.

The all outdoor Flex4G-10000, which operates in the E-band range (71-86GHz) and is already shipping to customers, has been designed to alleviate the strain of backhaul connections by combining advanced radio and modem capabilities with carrier-grade 10G Ethernet, CPRI, and SONET/SDH features. The radio scales from QPSK to 256 QAM, and from 500 MHz to 2000 MHz, allowing the customer to select the optimal combination of range and throughput. The Flex4G-10000 is also easily and cost-effectively scalable to 10Gbps for BridgeWave customers who have installed Flex4G-UHA, Flex4G-3000, or Flex4G-5000 systems, because it is fully compatible with the antennas deployed with those systems.

FEATURES

  • 9.7 Gbps data rate per 1+0 radio
