SDR GE2A Gigabit Ethernet transmission equipment for radio-relay link

 Gigabit Ethernet transmission equipment for radio-relay link


          In the last few years network operators are facing rapid growth and fast migration from TDM to packed traffic. The main challenge is how to optimize investments and reduce maintenance costs. The transition from legacy circuit network (TDM) to high-speed packet network is rapid and new equipment must support both technologies. New telecom operators need low entry and operational costs, but also scalable equipment in order to follow future market developments. SparkWave is optimized for different propagation conditions in different weather conditions. In many cases, spectrum economy plays a major role in considerably reducing operating costs. 

          The equipment SparkWave series has different outdoor and indoor radio relay units. SparkWave SDR indoor unit is modular. Different housings and high integration level allow easy interconnection, stacking with ESSI interface and direct connection to existent F/O networks. Outdoor units (ODU) is connected to the IDU via single coaxial cable up to 400 m. The outdoor units are connected to antennas using waveguide up to 1.8 m. 

         SparkWave SDR GE2A is a multipurpose cost effective point to point microwave radio. This easy-to-use, split mount, dual microwave link is designed for high capacity Gigabit Ethernet applications. Up to three independent cooper Gigabit Eththernet and four SFP slots.
        Operating frequency ranges from 5 to 42 GHz, including 17 and 24 GHz no licensed bands. Modulation up to QAM1024 and bandwidth up to 80 MHz can assure effective, flexible and scalable connections even for very long distances and/or for very high capacities. One indoor supports two ODUs, allowing any version of 1+1 or 2+0 configuration.
         ACM (Adaptive Coding & Modulation) in combination with QoS (Quality of Service) guarantees transmission of real-time critical services without latency variation, even in case of bad weather conditions.
         Aggregation possibility of native Ethernet guaranties both redundancy and higher capacity in 2+0 mode, reaching over 900 Mbit/s full duplex on 56 MHz channel. XPIC allows to reuse the same channel twice.
         Optionally additional native E1 or ASI can be configured. Up to 4x16E1 can be carried out using external termination box.
