All-Indoor Dual-Band 5.8 & 6 GHz Hybrid Systems:
The Ultimate in Flexibility

The dual-band EX-i Series GigE all-indoor microwave radio systems are the industry’s first high capacity, high power, low latency systems supporting both the 5.8 GHz license-exempt ISM band and the FCC Part 101 Lower 6 GHz band in a single, high performance integrated system. These systems provide an exceptional degree of deployment flexibility and are the first in the world to include native TDM and native Ethernet in a semi-protected, 1.5+0 protection configuration, and a host of advanced features designed to enhance capacity, range, availability, and reliability, including space diversity path protection.

Featuring advanced capabilities and full software configurability and upgradeability in both license-exempt and licensed bands, the EX-i Series GigE 5/6 GHz systems are ideal for quick commissioning of licensed links in advance of a license award. And, with exceptional system gain at full-throughput in 5.8 GHz and 6 GHz, performance in either band is simply unmatched!

The EX-i Series GigE 5/6 GHz radio systems are designed to meet the needs of organizations that:

  • desire the flexibility of the 5.8 GHz ISM band for long range, high throughput connections with an option for licensed migration to the lower 6 GHz band
  • plan to upgrade their backhaul networks to support TDM to IP or 3G to HSPA/4G/LTE migration;
  • prefer the convenience of all-indoor equipment for access to interfaces and RF electronics;
  • prefer not to deploy active electronics on a tower;

The EX-i Series GigE 5/6 GHz radio systems offer both guaranteed link and throughput availability, and come equipped with a rich feature set, including:
