30Gbit/s E-Band using a single 2 GHz channel
UltraLink™-XR80 is a next-generation, ultra-high capacity dual E-Band (71-76 / 81-86 GHz) radio that is ideal for use in 5G RAN transport (backhaul, midhaul and fronthaul) applications. It offers a ground-breaking full-duplex 30 Gbit/s of air capacity in one single unit using a 2,000 MHz channel in internally configured XRIC / RLA functionality, while the L1 Ethernet capacity of the radio may reach 40 Gbit/s by application of multi-layer capacity optimization. UltraLink™-XR80 provides the exceptional link ranges that are typical of the Intracom Telecom premium E-Band radio series. The radio features four 10 Gbit/s SFP+ based interfaces that can be used to transport Ethernet, eCPRI or CPRI traffic. Furthermore, in combination with a cell-site Gateway, it can offer advanced L2 / MPLS / L3 networking services. UltraLink™-XR80 is designed to be easily mounted on poles, while additional features, such as integrated radio link quality monitoring and diagnostics functionality, can improve speed and efficiency of deployment and maintenance. Due to its versatility and capacity, UltraLink™-XR80 can ideally support the combined traffic of 5G and legacy 2G / 3G / 4G mobile systems. Additional applications include transport in Metro / Aggregation networks as a fiber substitute.
