Wi-Fi deployments require higher WAN capacity, forcing convergence of the WAN and LAN. Millimeter-wave technology offers multi-gigabit speeds in multiple configurations for last-mile access and backhaul for Wi-Fi hotspots or MicroPoP access.

A multi-mode system can be configured for Point-to-Point (PTP), Point-to-Multipoint (PMP), or efficient mesh modes. Certified for highly efficient Meta Terragraph distributed mesh technology, 60 GHz solutions make it easy to provide efficient multi-gigabit speeds in the heart of any city.

The 802.11ay Standard



802.11ay is based on TDMA/TDD channel access with network synchronization. This technology is preferred for outdoor fixed wireless applications because the synchronized system reduces interface and maximizes frequency reuse.

Support for more CPE

Support for More CPE

The 802.11ad standard supports 8 Client Nodes per sector, while 802.11ay supports 15 Client Nodes per sector. As a result, the solution opens more opportunities for business cases and deployment strategies.

Support for Mesh architectures

Support for Mesh Architectures

The 802.11ay standard also supports meshing technology to provide a highly reliable and flexible Layer 3 architecture to facilitate network design and deployment.

Channel Bonding Technology

Effectively Doubling Throughput With Channel Bonding

Channel Bonding allows two contiguous channels to be merged into a single wideband channel, thereby doubling the capacity to 4.32 Gbps. 802.11ad does not support Channel Bonding and is limited to a single radio. Hence 802.11ay will always outperform 802.11ad.
