Fujitsu Unveils World's Highest Capacity E-Band Radio for the North American Market
RICHARDSON, Texas --(Business Wire)--
a leading provider of business, information technology, and
communications solutions, today announced the BroadOne™ GX4000 E-Band
Solution for the North American market. Operating in the 70/80 GHz or
E-band, which allows access to a wider radio frequency spectrum, the
BroadOne GX4000 Series is the only product of its kind using patented
Impulse Radio Technology to achieve 3 Gbps transmission rates, and
ultra-low latency.* With its compact form factor and easy installation,
the GX4000 is ideally suited for applications requiring ultra-high
capacity, short spans, where fiber is not available.
Radio access networks are quickly evolving toward LTE (News - Alert)-Advanced,
requiring much higher capacity in the backhaul and fronthaul networks.
The GX4000 offers an ideal way to deliver multi-Gigabit transport
capacity in current and future networks, and can be used in the
Gigabit Ethernet transport, typically applied for backhauling
mobile/fixed networks: An E-band link is an ideal complement to
wired backhaul technology, as it provides enough transmission capacity
to support radically increased data traffic demands within a short
CPRI (Common Public Radio Interface) transport, for fronthaul in
mobile networks: The expansion of LTE and LTE-Advanced introduces
the distributed radio access network architecture, or Cloud-RAN. The
new challenge for mobile network operators will be fronthaul, i.e.,
securing many connections between a centralized-baseband unit (BBU)
and remote radio head (RRH) in the most reliable, cost efficient
method. The GX4000 provides an industry-leading solution to address
the fronthaul challenge, while at the same time reducing OPEX (News - Alert), with a
flexible, easy to deploy solution.
Portable networks for disaster recovery and low-latency transport:
Wireless transport solutions are extremely important if a
communications network is heavily damaged and infrastructur must be
quickly restored. The GX4000 is an ideal solution for getting
emergency data traffic back up and running in a short amount of time.
"Fujitsu's (News - Alert) GX4000 E-band radio is one of the first platforms in the
industry to provide native CPRI interfaces, which will enable operators
to support BBU pooling without the need to deploy fiber in every sector,
thereby reducing costs and improving time to market," said Emmy Johnson,
Founder and Principal Analyst, Sky Light Research.
"As one of the world's leading microwave providers, Fujitsu is pleased
to introduce our patented Impulse Radio Technology to the North American
market," said Tetsuya Takase, Head of the Wireless Business Unit. "This
breakthrough technology provides real advantages over traditional
carrier-based transmission, making the BroadOne GX4000 platform a
perfect fit for delivering ultra-high capacity communications in a
variety of settings, including hospitals, campuses, and residential
areas, ultimately helping to improve the customer experience."
The BroadOne GX4000 is supported and managed by the NETSMART® 1500
Management System. Its intuitive Graphical User Interface (GUI) makes
provisioning, maintenance and troubleshooting a simple, efficient
process. The NETSMART 1500 Management System empowers service providers
to reduce operating expenses by reducing the time and complexity
associated with day-to-day operational and maintenance tasks.
