    Campus Connectivity: Easy to install and operate, the FibeAir IP-MAX Ethernet solutions provide transparent high-capacity connection of enterprise LAN and PBX systems. Users can buy capacity starting from 50 Mbps and can easily expand as needed, using software upgradeable capacity. Hardware optimization significantly reduces communication costs, operating expenses and maintenance requirements. Our wireless connectivity is ideal for a variety of private networks, such as corporate enterprises, education campuses, governments, municipalities, hospitals, banks and others.

    Backhaul for DSL Triple Play Networks: With the highest available throughput on the market, FibeAir provides operators with wireless GbE connectivity of IP-DSLAMs for economical introduction of triple play services including VoIP, Internet services and IPTV/HDTV over DSL. IP-DSLAM via wireless link is essential where there is no fiber reach or as a cost-effective alternative to leased lines.

    WiMax Infrastructure Backhauling: Provides a robust and cost-effective alternative to expensive leased lines, for connectivity between WIMAX base stations expanding network reach.

    High-Speed Internet Wireless Backbone: Wireless Internet Service Providers (WISPs) use backhaul to connect their Point of Presence (POP). By deploying our wireless Ethernet solutions, WISPs receive Fast/Gigabit Ethernet connectivity and upgradeability paths for higher capacities, with the same cost-effective system.

    IP Backhaul for Point-to-Multipoint Networks: Delivers the high-capacity necessary for broadband-rich applications, using the same hardware package. FibeAir networks can be implemented in mesh, ring and star topologies for full redundancy and flexibility.

    Cellular Network Backhaul and Access: FibeAir provides TDM for cellular backhaul and Ethernet for data access, within the same compact package. The system is suitable for 3G/UMTS and “All-IP” networks, where carrier-grade Ethernet services are required.

    System Overview

    Broadband Ethernet solutions enable native Ethernet transmission with multiple frequencies, software selectable capacities, modulation schemes and configurations for various network requirements using the same hardware and state-of-the-art technology. The system supports high-capacity data services as well as traditional voice services, with both Ethernet and TDM interfaces.

    This innovative platform uses an “on-the-fly” upgrade method, meaning that network operators only buy capacity as needed, benefiting from savings on initial investments and OPEX.

    The FibeAir IP-MAX IDU (Indoor Unit) can host up to two carriers, each delivering up to 400 Mbps, optimizing the solution for different network topologies and configurations.

    Traffic capacity throughput and spectral efficiency are optimized with the desired channel bandwidth. For maximum user choice flexibility, channel bandwidths can be selected together with a range of modulations, from QPSK to 256 QAM. Two independent hotswappable Indoor unit modules (IDM) can be used for hot-standby HW protection, diversity, East-West configuration or double capacity (2+0).

    High spectral efficiency is ensured by choosing the same bandwidth for double the capacity, via two carriers with vertical and horizontal polarizations. This feature is implemented by a built-in XPIC mechanism.

    TDM Voice Transmission with Dynamic Allocation - With nxE1/DS1 option, only enabled E1/DS1 ports are allocated with capacity. The remaining capacity is dynamically allocated to the FE/GbE ports to ensure maximum Ethernet capacity.

    Fast Recovery Time to Support RSTP - When combined with a switch/router that supports RSTP (Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol), this feature enables fastest recovery time.

    Highest Priority Level for BPDU Packets - To support optimal operation of spanning tree protocols.

    Fast Ethernet Indoor Modules (FE IDM)

    Fast Ethernet IDM are hot-swappable modules that fit into the FibeAir IP-MAX IDU providing a configurable high-capacity Fast-Ethernet wireless transmission with quality-of-service controls. Each Fast Ethernet IDM contains 2xFE ports or 2xFE with 8xE1/DS1 ports and one radio interface.

    Wire-speed FE IDM’s are available with a single FE port (100 or 50 Mbps throughput) or 2xFE ports with 200 Mbps full-duplex throughput. Capacity upgrades using software-licensed keys with specific serial numbers are available from 50 to 100 Mbps throughput and from 100 to 200 Mbps throughput.

    Physical Port Priority - If both Fast Ethernet ports are used, total Ethernet capacity is dynamically allocated between the two ports, or priority can be given to one port over the other.

    Built-in Quality of Service - Provides priority support allowing user’s different classes of service, according to VLAN priority (802.1p) and DiffServ / IPv4 TOS or IPv6 TC bits values. All use 4 levels of prioritization with user selectable options between strict priority queuing or weighted fair queuing with 8:4:2:1 strict weights.

    Layer 2 Switch – Enables two separate LAN connections while ensuring security between them.

    Gigabit Ethernet Indoor Modules (GbE IDM)

    Gigabit Ethernet IDMs are hot-swappable modules that fit into the FibeAir IP-MAX IDU providing Gigabit Ethernet wireless transmission.

    Each GbE IDM contains a GbE port or GbE with 8xE1/DS1 ports and one radio interface. GbE IDMs are available with traffic throughput of up to 400 Mbps full duplex per single radio carrier.

    Maximum Throughput - Of 800 Mbps over a single 56 MHz channel is available, using co-channel & dual polarization (CCDP) with XPIC and only one IDU (two IDMs with two carriers and two different GbE physical interfaces).

    Super Jumbo Frame Support - Gigabit IDM supports rame sizes of up to 12,000 bytes. With this feature, FibeAir IP-MAX is ready to support next generation Ethernet networks. In heavily loaded networks, where continuous data transfer is required, jumbo frames can significantly enhance the efficiency of Ethernet servers and networks. Jumbo frames enable the reduction of the packet processing by the server and thereby increase end-to-end throughput. 

    End-to-End Network Management

    We provide state-of-the-art management based on SNMP. Our management applications are written in Java code and enable management functions at both the element and network levels. The applications run on Windows 2000/2003/XP and Sun Solaris.

    CeraView® is the SNMP-based EMS (Element Management System) that enables the operator to perform element configuration, RF and SDH performance monitoring, remote diagnostics, alarm reports and more. CeraView integrates with different 3rd party NMS (Network Management System) platforms to provide end-to-end system management.

    PolyView™ is the NMS server that includes CeraMap™, its friendly yet powerful client graphical interface. PolyView can be used to update and monitor network topology status, provide statistical and inventory reports, define end-to-end traffic trails, download software and configure elements in the network. In addition, it can integrate with Northbound NMS platforms, to provide enhanced network management.
