Horizon Quantum

Unmatched capacity and spectral efficiency

Delivering from 2 to 4 Gbps per link, Horizon Quantum represents the next generation in packet microwave technology and sets a new benchmark for performance. With dual-channel capability, this split-mount system is a step change in spectral efficiency, capacity, nodal intelligence, and operational simplicity; all while occupying only half a rack unit and consuming the lowest power per bit of any solution today. In addition, the Horizon Quantum’s integrated switching means that it can provide aggregation and restoration in a single unit.

With this level of performance – in a packet microwave system that is remarkably simple to install and operate – operators can now avoid the high cost and long delays associated with fiber deployments, yet achieve the capacity and reliability they require for all of their future applications and services.
