Backhaul Solution for Urban Small-cell Networks

The Avenue Link Lite sub-6-GHz point-to-point microwave radio from DragonWave has a form factor of only 7.5 inches square, including an integrated antenna. The unit supports licensed and unlicensed spectrum and is suited for non-line-of-sight (NLOS) deployment scenarios where obstructions are found between link endpoints. The unit offers full scalability and is designed within specifications that ensure compliance with strict city-zoning regulations in order to blend into the urban landscape. It can be configured and monitored remotely. Streamlined functionality is complemented by low power consumption (less than 15 W), PoE compatibility, reduced cabling requirements and in-band synchronization, which eliminates the need for an external synchronization source. The high-capacity and low-latency capabilities make it one of the first LTE-ready NLOS systems. It can be deployed using a tree topology, with macrocell traffic aggregation points on rooftops, or with tail, chain or small hub microsites at street level, which reduces interference and offers more flexible network connectivity, as well as simplifying network expansion and helping to ensure protected network architectures. www.dragonwaveinc.com
