These days most fiber connectivity is used for backhauling requirements, but sometimes it is not a viable solution because of its high cost and the impracticality of laying fiber in difficult terrain. In these circumstances, wireless backhaul is the best solution.
Three of the most critical and demanding backhaul applications are: video surveillance, backhauling eNodeBs (eNB) and corporate networks.
- Video applications: the backhaul system needs to fulfill the throughput requirements of carrying multiple streams of data while maintaining low-latency, as video surveillance is a real-time application which is sensitive to latency.
- Backhauling eNBs for an LTE network: requires low-latency over the backhaul link, as well as high throughput rate. So this requires a solution that not only provides high throughput but at the same time maintains low latency.
- Corporate networks: The three major requirements of backhauling corporate networks, regardless of the application, are reliability, throughput and security. Businesses depend on these links and need timely availability of the data, so it is critical that the links installed for these applications are extremely reliable and secure.
Enterprise wireless Customer Premise Equipment (CPE) provide high performance TCP/IP transport for dedicated access, trunking and mid-range backhaul applications. Either deployed in pairs for point-to-point (PTP) service or connected from multiple sites to the Redline Ellipse series base station in point-to-multipoint (PMP) applications, Enterprise terminals deliver reliable, simultaneous voice, data and video services, economically.
Superior non-line-of-sight (NLOS) performance allows for lower antenna heights and significantly reduced deployment costs. Flexible mounting options and full over-the-air provisioning lowers upfront costs and yields faster ROI.
Enterprise-CPE offers the most cost-effective solution while Enterprise-XR meets the challenge of sites requiring extra power or extended distance.
