Intracom Telecom, a global telecommunication systems and solutions vendor, announced today the expansion of its mmWave product line with the addition of UltraLink-BX70, an E-Band radio to address the Access and Enterprise connectivity market segment needs. The company will launch its latest offering at GITEX Technology Week, 16-20 October 2016, Dubai.
UltraLink-BX70 is an ultra-compact all-outdoor TDD Ethernet radio operating in the 71-76 GHz part of the E-Band spectrum, used to implement wireless point-to-point links accommodating of more than 1Gbps capacity at ranges over 5 km. It ideally suits applications such as last-mile B2B connectivity, FTTx extension services, delivery of broadband service to multi-dwelling units (MDUs), connectivity for government and public service buildings, utilities and industrial complexes, university campus building interconnection, security camera and Wi-Fi access point backhaul.
UltraLink-BX70 achieves throughputs of up to 1.6 Gbit/s aggregate, while offering a complete set of Carrier Ethernet networking features. The TDD operation mode offers flexibility and efficiency in the delivery of services with symmetric or asymmetric traffic profiles such encountered in broadband access or camera backhaul applications.
"Having acknowledged the need for a radio system that demonstrates comparable performance to optical fiber, but at a price point that can better support the market segment's business models; we developed the UltraLink-BX70 that can be used in cost-sensitive, high-capacity applications," said Mr. John Tenidis, Marketing Head of Intracom Telecom's wireless solutions portfolio. "Many types of organizations that require Gbps connectivity, including Network Operators, ISPs, WISPs, Universities, Utility companies, Enterprises, Civil services, Port Authorities etc., can now benefit from the UltraLink-BX70 rich features and capabilities."
