Multi-Gigabit Edge Capacity to Meet Demand

The huge demand for bandwidth is a challenge and an opportunity for communications service providers. Millimeter-wave wireless technology delivers multi-gigabit speeds needed for virtual office applications, video conferencing and online collaboration.

Fixed wireless technology meets the demand for bandwidth in urban locations. WiFi 6 and multi-gigabit switches support the higher demands. The capacity bottleneck has moved to the backhaul WAN that supports the access layer. Wi-Fi deployments require higher WAN capacity, forcing convergence of the WAN and LAN. Service providers now have access to multi-gigabit speeds in multiple configurations, including business and residential last-mile access and backhaul for wireless MicroPoP access. Certified for Facebook Terragraph mesh technology, 60 GHz solutions make it easy to provide efficient multi-gigabit speeds in the heart of any city.

A multi-mode system can be configured for Point-to-Point (PTP), Point-to-Multipoint (PMP), or efficient mesh modes. The solution provides last mile access to subscriber homes, enterprises, and multi-dwelling buildings as well as transport for video surveillance and public Wi-Fi networks.


Applications

Muli-gigabit wireless communications at the edge of the network provide high-speed access to bridge the digital divide in the following applications:

  • Business and residential broadband access
  • Campus area networks including hospitals, enterprise campus, K-12 and higher education campuses and event locations
  • High-capacity infrastructure for outdoor Wi-Fi hotspots
  • Infrastructure for Multi-Dwelling Units (MDU) including apartment buildings, dormitories, elder care facilities
  • Wireless infrastructure for CCTV and video surveillance camera locations
  • Infrastructure for service provider 4G or 5G small cell coverage areas
  • Wireless bridges for fiber or cable networks
millimeter-wave applications


The 802.11ay Standard

TDMA/TDD vs CSMA

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

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

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

Channel Bonding Effectively Doubles Throughput

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.
