Technical Specifications (18,23,26 and 38 GHz)

Pinnacle Digital Microwave Radios
Operating at 13, 15, 18, 23, 26 & 38 GHz with Capacities of 155 Mbit/s OC-3/STM1 and Ethernet 100BaseT

Pinnacle radios are specifically designed for high capacity synchronous and IP based applications including first and last mile network access, Sonet/SDH ring closure, and cellular base station backhaul. Pinnacle radios are meeting the growing demand for more bandwidth while maintaining high spectrum efficiency.

Pinnacle
Pinnacle’s versatile design allows low-cost transmission of high-capacity data through narrow or congested spectrum. This spectral efficiency is complimented by a physical architecture that promotes rapid and cost-effective installations. Using multiple plug-in modules, the indoor unit (IDU) provides various customer signal interface(s) as well as access to the SNMP and local management ports for on-site commissioning and maintenance. The outdoor unit (ODU) consists of an RF unit directly integrated with a low-profile antenna - all connected to the IDU through a single coaxial cable. For critical paths, Pinnacle can also be configured for redundant hardware protection (1+1) using either a single or dual antenna design.

Versatile

  • Plug-In data interface modules are field interchangeable and allow simple access to all standard interfaces           
  • Transport for ATM and SONET/SDH based systems           
  • 100 BaseT Interface is ideal for LAN, WAN & ISP           
  • Last-mile spur access           
  • Cell based network back haul for GSM, PCS, Cellular, 3G

Easy To Install & Operate

  • Typical install time of less than 3 hours           
  • Integrated ODU/Antenna assembly           
  • Up to 1000 feet separation between ODU/IDU           
  • Simple graphical interface for initial set-up and maintenance           
  • Internal loopbacks, separate TX/RX switching, remote software downloads           
  • SNMP management interface

Reliable

  • Highly integrated MMIC, DSP, and flash technologies           
  • Extended MTBF           
  • Increased availability using redundant configuration           
  • Complete Digital Design           
  • Designed and Manufactured using ISO 9001 Standards

Technical Advantages

  • 128 QAM modulation allows narrow 28 MHz operation           
  • Offers a high gain option for wideband channels           
  • Advanced forward error correction (FEC)           
  • Automatic Transmit Power Control (ATPC)           
  • Dual FLASH memory for software backup           
  • Common IDU reduces sparing and operating costs
