Ceragon: compact, all-outdoor packet for 4G/LTE backhaul

Ceragon Networks Ltd. (Paramus, N.J., U.S.A.), a wireless backhaul vendor, announced the release of a compact, all-outdoor, high-capacity wireless packet for 4G/LTE backhaul.

The FibeAir IP-10C, the newest product in the FibeAir IP-10 family, delivers up to 1 Gbps of IP traffic on a single radio channel, according to Ceragon.  The packet can be mounted to rooftops, lamp posts, traffic lights, and outdoor mobile cell sites, says the company. 

According to a Ceragon spokesperson, the packet provides 30-40% lower consumption than a split-mount design.  Additional power saving is achieved by eliminating the need for cooling since the system is outdoors.

Another feature of the packet includes asymmetric traffic delivery for up to 50% more download capacity.  According to the Ceragon spokesperson, in asymmetric mode a portion of the frequency being used is typically reserved for upstream traffic or downloading data, enlarging the capacity.

Pricing information on the FibeAir IP-10C was not disclosed.
