All-Indoor, Carrier-Class, Upgradeable Licensed Band Trunk Radio Systems for Medium and High Capacity TDM and Ethernet Backhaul Applications

The EX-i Series GigE all-indoor microwave radio systems can deliver up to 1 Gbps full-duplex capacity through aggregation of multiple radios over ranges exceeding 20 miles. They are the first in the world to include a semi-protected, 1.5+0 protection configuration as well as a host of advanced features designed to enhance capacity, range, availability and reliability.

Featuring multiple transmit power options, native TDM and native Ethernet transport and full software configurability and upgradeability, the EX-i Series GigE systems are designed to meet demanding requirements of mobile operators, wireline carriers, utilities, railroads and other organizations with long haul, high capacity transport requirements.

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

  • Must upgrade their backhaul to support TDM to IP or 3G to HSPA/4G/LTE migration;
  • Are replacing or upgrading existing all-indoor 6 GHz microwave radio equipment;
  • Need to deploy radio systems in locations where weather dictates the use of all-indoor equipment;
  • Prefer not to deploy active electronics on a tower; and/or
  • Require ready access to the physical interfaces.

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