Mobile Backhaul

Backhaul as evolved as the emerging applications you must support

With speeds approaching 300 Mbps, LTE networks will clearly demand much greater backhaul capacity than most existing deployments can provide. Other important considerations for next generation service providers include a fully packet based architecture, Synchronous Ethernet (SyncE), and ultra-low latency.

Engineered for the requirements of tomorrow’s networks, DragonWave’s Horizon solutions respond to the needs of LTE service providers with the highest capacity and spectral efficiency solutions on the market. Horizon packet microwave systems provide up to 4 Gbps per link, deliver sub 0.1 millisecond latency, provide SynchE support, integrated switching, native Ethernet, and the ability to easily and rapidly expand market coverage and capacity on demand.

Advanced radio features, such as XPIC and hitless Automatic Adaptive Modulation, enable operators to extend their capacity up to 5 times for bandwidth hungry applications – all without adding any additional spectrum.
