FibeAir 640P in Cellular Networks
The introduction of 3G cellular networks and the huge increase in Node-B data traffic has resulted in a high demand for transmission of data-related E1/T1s from Node-Bs and BTS (Base Transceiver Station) sites to the RNC/BSC layer. In many networks, the need to carry this traffic, securely, resiliently and effectively, has led to the creation of an intermediate transmission layer in the RAN. Being further away from the core network and fiber optic coverage, on one hand, and with uncertainties of 2G/3G co-existence and traffic demands on the other, the intermediate layer must have many, and sometimes contradicting characteristics.
FibeAir 640P answers these requirements. As an optimized network element with mid to high capacity, it was designed with the intermediate layer dilemma in mind. FibeAir offers a straightforward migration path, from mid-capacity PDH links of 32/28 E1s/T1s to high capacity links of 48 and 64 E1/T1s. In addition, FibeAir provides the cellular operator with Fast Ethernet connectivity. For optimized traffic flow when both Ethernet and TDM traffic are converged, FibeAir governs the traffic using dynamic bandwidth allocation.
FibeAir 640P provides the network planner with the most flexible and efficient solution for 2G and 3G deployment challenges. Its dynamic mixing of TDM and packet traffic, and its clear migration paths from mid-capacity PDH/Ethernet to high-capacity PDH/Ethernet, and to SONET/SDH asymmetrical network access, make it the best choice for cellular network building.
FibeAir 640P High Capacity PDH Trunk
With a variety of "SDH-like" networking and management features, and simple and economic deployment and operation, FibeAir 640P is the best comprehensive choice for a PDH radio. To meet operator needs for mid to high capacity PDH trunks, FibeAir 640P offers split-mount and all-indoor installations, and software upgrades beginning with 28 T1s/32 E1s, and up to 64 E1s/T1s.
The typical FibeAir 640P PDH trunk application consists of a chained point-to-point wireless link, which carries E1/T1 traffic and bridges the capacity gap between PDH and SDH networks. The FibeAir 640P design allows operators to upgrade their links without costly additional investments in equipment. Its dynamic operation ensures that available bandwidth matches the actual demand.
The same FibeAir 640P hardware supports a Fast Ethernet port with flexible bandwidth allocation between TDM and Ethernet traffic.
FibeAir 640P is a highly resilient carrier-grade radio due to its 1+1 HSB (Hot Standby) protection capability for radio and all traffic-affecting circuitry. The protection configuration also provides an economic advantage as it significantly reduces maintenance and operation costs.
