Wireless Transport Solutions using Microwave

NEC is the leading global provider of point-to-point microwave solutions and has been delivering Wireless Transport solutions for over 30 years that enable safe, secure, reliable and versatile networks that provide the underlying fabric of our new digital world.

As mobile services evolve beyond Long Term Evolution (LTE), it is paramount to provide solutions that realise high capacity, effortless connectivity, and ease of maintenance to all customers equally and affordably, with the flexibility to adapt to their diverse needs and requirements.

NEC’s microwave transport solutions offer unmatched reliability that are field proven over the years. Together with advances in radio technology and leading software-defined networking (SDN) expertise, NEC provides highly dependable and intelligent converged solutions that satisfy current and future mobile requirements.

With over 3 million iPasolink terminals shipped to date that are 100% made in Japan, NEC offers unparalleled quality and reliability to deliver connectivity in mission-critical networks.

Who uses NEC Transport Solutions?

NEC’s Microwave solutions are used extensively in any situation where communication is required between two points that have a clear line of sight (LOS). They are used for critical voice applications, mixed voice and data and pure data applications. Microwave links are quick and easy to deploy and offer a very convenient way to establish connectivity quickly and reliably where fibre is not cost-effective, not possible, or as fibre redundancy.

Microwave solutions are used widely across the following sectors:

– FEATURES

Key features and benefits of NEC iPasolink Family of Microwave solutions

NEC is a global leader in developing and delivering a flexible radio architecture that can work in all kinds of situations to give reliable, cost-effective, high capacity solutions. A very high capacity radio for lots of ethernet capacity or a very long link using narrow channels for critical voice applications can be easily designed with the iPasoLink platform quickly and easily.

Carrier Grade Converged Nodes
The iPasolink VR leads the industry with an extremely flexible set of VR chassis that enable true optical and microwave convergence in a single solution with a 100Gbp non-blocking switch for multiple 10G optical connections and high capacity microwave links all in a single chassis with control, and power redundancy. Along with NEC’s SDN solutions, the iPasolink VR is ready for the 5G era, where new services and technologies will revolutionise the mobile landscape.
Sub-Band Free Outdoor RF Units
The NEC outdoor units (ODU) have an optional unique sub-band free architecture enabling a single ODU to cover an entire subband. This enables a single unit to cover all of the required channels that would normally require up to four pairs of outdoor units for channel coverage and sparing. This greatly simplifies how operators can build, manage and maintain their networks with a fraction of the spares and a lot more frequency agility. These sub-band free out-door units are available in 7-23GHz.
Multiple interfaces, maximum flexibility
The NEC iPasolink VR has a unique set of interfaces and a true hybrid architecture that support multi-gigabit switching but still with a time division multiplexing (TDM) cross-connect, this enables public safety and critical communication networks to still use existing E1 and STM-1 services in parallel with a comprehensive suite of Ethernet features. In addition, any E1 can be transported across pseudowires as the network evolves to all IP.

Interfaces: E1, STM-1, FE/GBE, 10G Optical, CWDM and AUX I/O
Flexible architecture, common outdoor RF units
The iPasolink has a common range of outdoor units that are used for the split mount VR chassis as well as the IX Advanced. This gives operators the flexibility to build mixed all outdoor and split mount systems at will but with a common set of ODUs supporting the network.
Hierarchical Quality of Service- H-QoS
As the need to efficiently share infrastructure and linking becomes more common, operators need a solution that will respect each QoS and ensure these are respected in difficult linking conditions. The use of H-QoS on the iPasolink VR ensures multiple customers have their high priority traffic protected and respected. H-QoS provides the needed granularity to provision dynamic bandwidth allocation to each service in order to enable differentiated carrier ether services. Multiple QoS shaper profiles corresponding to each service’s capacity need can be created.
