SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 8, 2016) - Exalt Wireless, the leading innovator of next-generation wireless connectivity systems for private networks and Internet infrastructures, today announced that its ExploreAir LR 7 GHz microwave systems have been used to establish a reliable, high-speed link spanning what it believes is a record-breaking 235 kilometers over water. The microwave link, deployed in a licensed frequency band for an unnamed wireless Internet service provider (WISP) between an island in the Mediterranean and the coast of Lebanon, provides up to 500 Mbps full duplex or 1 Gigabit per second of aggregate throughput and underscores Exalt's outstanding performance and value. The link, as part of a hybrid network of microwave radios and land fiber, provides essential network connectivity between two continents and, after a full year in operation, has proven to be far less expensive and more reliable than leasing undersea cable.
"We have said all along that our microwave systems deliver the highest performance and reliability, and this deployment proves it," said Amir Zoufonoun, CEO and founder of Exalt Wireless. "We believe that the previous distance record was 225 kilometers, and that was over land, using dual radios at each end of the link. Our deployment uses just one radio at each end of the link and we link over water, which creates significant transmission problems for ordinary microwave radios."
Exalt ExploreAir LR all-outdoor radios are ultra-high capacity, ultra-high gain, zero-footprint microwave systems operating in the 6-43GHz bands. Designed to significantly reduce required antenna diameter and featuring the industry's only field replaceable diplexers, ExploreAir LR systems offer dramatic TCO savings over competitive alternatives. With Exalt's in-house designed, proprietary advanced DSP algorithms and circuit designs, coupled with its own advanced RF electronics, the XPIC-ready ExploreAir LR systems, utilizing the 2+0 single antenna configuration, can deliver up to 1000 Mbps full-duplex Layer 2 uncompressed data throughput in a single channel over long distances, resulting in the industry's lowest cost per Mbps/mile.
Exalt ExploreAir LR microwave systems are available globally from Exalt directly or through a worldwide network of distributors.
