Exalt Announces EX-s Gigabit Ethernet Microwave Radio Systems

Exalt Communications has announced the EX-s Gigabit Ethernet (GigE) family of carrier-class, split-mount microwave radio systems for the 7 to 40 GHz ITU/ETSI bands. These point-to-point systems offer mobile operators and enterprises new levels of backhaul upgrade flexibility and functionality, enabling smooth, low-cost TDM to IP migration and supporting mobile network evolution from 3G to HSPA/4G/LTE.

The EX-s GigE systems offer capacities from 20 Mbps to 365 Mbps per carrier, and feature hitless and errorless adaptive coding and modulation to maximize spectrum utilization and availability over any given channel bandwidth and under changing environmental conditions. The EX-s GigE radios also support Exalt's unique multi-radio, multi-band, capacity aggregation, enabling up to four systems in any band combination, licensed or license-exempt, to deliver up to 1 Gbps full-duplex throughput over a single Gigabit Ethernet port.

Featuring native TDM and native Gigabit Ethernet transport for HSPA/4G/LTE migration, Exalt EX-s GigE systems also include an integrated Gigabit Ethernet switch, automatic transmit power control (ATPC), built-in E1 cross-connect, built-in spectrum analyzer, AES encryption, QoS, VLAN and secure management. The IDUs are fully software configurable and provide both PDH and SDH capacities up to 2xSTM-1 in a streamlined 1RU form factor that eliminates the need for additional hardware modules.

All Exalt radio systems licensed and license-exempt are carrier-class systems offering guaranteed link availability, guaranteed throughput and low, constant latency. Systems are available in frequencies from 2 to 40 GHz and in capacities up to 1000 Mbps, providing a range of options to fit countless network applications. Designed to enable a smooth transition to IP, they offer native support for both TDM and Ethernet, and are fully software configurable and upgradeable. For easy and secure management using third-party network management systems, Exalt systems support SNMP v1, v2c and v3. Data security is provided by available FIPS-197 compliant AES 128-bit and 256-bit encryption that adds zero latency to the transmission. To simplify installation and maintenance, all Exalt systems feature an embedded user manual and most include a built-in spectrum analyzer.

Exalt EX-s GigE microwave radio systems are available immediately.
