    A New Generation of Broadband Millimeter Wave Systems

    The Pinnacle Product Family is a high-capacity wireless point-to-point system for 155 Mbps (SDH/SONET) communication use in many types of metropolitan and rural applications. The integrated network management capabilities are based on international standard interfaces such as SNMP, Telnet, TFTP and PPP.  The system includes a low profile outdoor unit (ODU) containing the RF Assembly, high performance antenna and mount, and an indoor unit (IDU) which is a 1RU rack-mountable package.  The Pinnacle series products include an advanced modem with a powerful forward error correction (FEC) scheme.  It makes extensive use of MMIC and VLSI technology, resulting in a low cost, low power consumption and high MTBF (mean time before failure) system.

    Key Features and Benefits

    Applications for Pinnacle

    -Interconnectivity for cellular base station networks and back haul for point-to-multipoint applications.
    -Full or partial radio coverage in broadband ring architectures; excellent complement to fiber rings.
    -Last mile broadband access service; radio to the curb.
    -Protection backup to installed fiber network.
    -Private access between customer’s equipment and point of presence (POP).

    Cost-effective Network-Managed System 

    -Breakthrough in cost / performance / physical size. 
    -Low cost of ownership; software configurable for simple installation; no tuning or adjustments for ease of maintenance.
    -Advance modem technology and digital processing utilize state-of-the-art techniques to ensure a highly reliable, stable link performance and fiber equivalent data integrity.
    -Compact IDU (1 RU) and integrated ODU provide one of the smallest and easiest to operate systems in the industry.
    -Integrated network management supporting SNMP and other international standards. 

    Compatibility with SDH/SONET Networks

    -Designed to meet international SDH/SONET standards; conforms to applicable ETSI, ITU-R, ITU-T, FCC and BellCore recommendations. 
    -Choice of optical or electrical interfaces at STM-1 or OC-3 access points. 
    -Optional access to frame SOH for wayside channel and monitor/control network compatibility. 

    State-of –the-Art Technology

    - Completely digitized modem implementation including multi-level QAM modulation, digital adaptive equalization and FEC. 
    -Common IDU mates with a family of ODU’s covering the most popular ETSI and FCC frequency bands. 
    -Ultra low phase noise frequency synthesizer for improved data performance. 
    -Design platform at 155 Mb/s allows for straight-forward upgradability to additional rates using SDH/SONET standards.
