Have you ever asked how?
How do people remain connected when out at sea or in the middle of nowhere? The answer is via wireless backhaul which uses a wireless radio link as an intermediate network infrastructure between a core network and a subnetwork.
Remote, stable and high capacity coverage
Offering near and far connectivity, Point-to-Point or PtP wireless backhaul solutions provide stable remote coverage while having the ability to support heavy traffic when needed. PtP also extends connectivity in fiberless infrastructures with low capacity requirements, for example in branches of a bank, where the amount of transferred traffic is approximately relatively small.
Licensed or not
Wireless backhaul connectivity can be based on standard protocols like WiMAX or WiFi and also on proprietary protocols developed by vendors and delivered over licensed or unlicensed frequency bands. Although more expensive, licensed frequency bands have less interference while unlicensed frequency bands are less secure and more prone to interference from neighboring frequencies.
It’s an Ultra Breeze
Solving stability issues with maximum reach and availability
Operating on unlicensed frequencies, Alvarion’s BreezeULTRA provides a cost-effective, secure and stable PtP wireless backhaul solution.
Reducing delay time and doubling capacity, BreezeULTRA employs two wireless radio links operating in parallel where each end of each link has two antennas which both operate at different frequencies. Receiving antennas have an uplink and transmitting antennas a downlink.
When a link is jammed or fails, BreezeULTRA’s flexible Automatic Channel Select (ACS) function is used to maintain connectivity stability by automatically switching between wireless radio links. The new link then becomes bidirectional and remains so until the first link is available.
