We offer gigabit wireless links based on market input that customers would upgrade networking infrastructure to gigabit speed wireless links once the cost of deploying gigabit wireless links fell to within the price range of existing 50-100Mbps links. We view the "total cost" to a customer as a combination of purchase price, field reliability and ease of deployment. We took it as fundamental objective to offer highly-integrated gigabit solutions that simultaneously offers the highest performance, best reliability, and simplest installation, with a purchase price of less than half of the prevailing gigabit wireless market price.
Choice of 60GHz and E-Band Links
Both bands have unique advantages, and with us you chose the types of links that make the most sense for your business and your applications. Whatever your choice, you get the peace of mind of our experience, service and quality.
We offer uncompromising performance. Our links feature an "always full rate", very low latency, GigE connection, making it a direct substitute for a GigE fiber connection. Beyond offering the best data performance in the industry, we add a strong Forward Error Correction code to the transmitted data, correcting most of the errors that occur as the link approaches threshold due to moments of heavy rainfall. This allows the customers to deploy gigabit wireless links links at distances 30% longer than competing products. Also, since the signal is fully digitally regenerated upon receipt, it is possible to daisy-chain multiple links without accumulating analog noise with each hop. This makes our wireless links the natural choice for building virtual fiber network operator distribution backbones.
AdaptRate links are the only full-rate GigE links that can automatically compensate for heavy rain downpours by temporarily switching to 100Mbps data rates. This allows users to use GigE data rates at link distances that would otherwise only operate reliably at 100Mbps. At traditional GigE link distances, AdaptRate links provide ultra-critical applications link availability levels that far exceed what was previously achievable.
Simplest to Install
We realize that installation material and labor can be a significant portion of the customer's total cost of ownership. We include power supplies, all installation materials (except for customer premise fiber cables and power wiring) for both mast and wall mounting with the standard product, and provides both a simple Visual Alignment Tool (VAT), that allows the installer to quickly align the radios on the main antenna beam, as well as Receive Signal Level and Signal Quality voltage test cable to ensure that the radios are optimally aligned. Installers can complete the installation quickly, with confidence that the link is correctly installed. There is no configuration required - the links are simply "point and shoot."
We employ state-of-the-art HALT and HASS test methodologies to eliminate design and workmanship defects that could result in reduced system lifetime or premature field failures. Highly Accelerated Life Testing (HALT) is used during the design cycle to subject the product to ever increasing thermal and mechanical stress levels until the units fail. Design weaknesses are exposed and corrected before the product ever goes into production. Once the design has been validated through HALT, each production unit goes through a reduced version of this testing called Highly Accelerated Stress Screening (HASS) that is designed to expose workmanship or component defects that may occur during the manufacturing process. HASS is designed to identify specific units that may experience premature field failures, to avoid field outages and re-installation/repair labor. HALT and HASS testing is costly, but we believe that the overall result is a reduction in the customer's overall cost of ownership.
We employ a novel, highly-integrated radio architecture that eliminates many of the components and mechanical waveguide structures traditionally found in millimeter-wave radios and high-performance digital designs. This not only results in the lowest manufacturing cost, but also in one of the highest calculated MTBF levels (28 years) found in the industry, regardless of operating frequency and link capacity. These cost and "extended lifetime" savings are simply not possible with the highly modularized designs found in other gigabit speed links.
- Reliable, Affordable Wireless Solution: Gigabit solution with the highest performance and best reliability with a purchase price of less than half of the prevailing gigabit wireless market price.
- Fiber-Like Performance: Direct substitute for gigabit Ethernet fiber, with very low latency and GigE speeds.
- Point-and-shoot radio alignment with easy-to-use network management system: integrated Ethernet switching allows operators to add/drop Ethernet services at each point of a distribution backbone, without the need for external network equipment.
- Rigorous Reliability Testing: HALT and HASS test methodologies expose design weaknesses before the product ever goes into production.
