Optimizing Network Performance!

The WiBAS™ OSDR all-outdoor radio offers leading Point-to-MultiPoint (PtMP) technology in area-licensed bands. It delivers state-of-the-art IP connectivity in demanding HetNet backhaul as well as in premium broadband and legacy access networks. Based on the software-defined OSDR platform, WiBAS™ OSDR can also operate in Point-to-Point (PtP) mode with the appropriate license key to address sparsely-populated areas and extend the reusability of the radios in the network. By employing today's most advanced technologies, WiBAS™ OSDR combines sophisticated features, robust performance and highly efficient operation to enable a wide range of profitable business plans, providing a key differentiator of operator success.

Benefits

  • High capacity to satisfy every backhaul and access demand.
  • Robust hitless adaptive modulation.
  • Large service area footprint - high terminal density per sector and very long ranges.
  • Optimum utilization of network resources.
  • Rapid network expansion - just add terminals at the served sites.
  • Lower initial and running costs as resulted from less equipment inventory.
  • Significant OpEx savings compared to Point-to-Point deployment costs in urban environments.
  • One-off regulator license throughout the product's lifecycle.
  • 1024-QAM in PtMP mode and 4096-QAM in PtP -mode, without data retransmission, which consumes valuable resources and increases latency.
  • 1 Gbit/s aggregate sector capacity
  • Native Ethernet packet technology
  • Operation at area-licensed frequencies: 10.5 / 26 / 28 / 32 / 42 GHz (ETSI) and 28 GHz (FCC).
  • Proven multi-service platform for legacy & packet based services
  • Terminal Stations capable of delivering full sector capacity
  • Exceptional system performance, full hierarchical QoS support and carrier-grade protection mechanisms
  • Low latency for delay-sensitive transmission
  • Hitless adaptive modulation up to 1024-QAM
  • Dynamic Bandwidth Allocation (DBA), statistical multiplexing and error correction mechanisms for carrier-grade high-speed wireless connections
  • Zero footprint, environmentally friendly design.

Best fit for

  • Mobile operators needing cost-effective backhaul of their 3G / LTE networks
  • Competitive service providers planning to develop business with high-end customers for offering legacy and broadband access services (telephony, Web/IP services, metro Ethernet connectivity, etc.)
  • Public sector organizations, utility companies, banks, etc. needing to deploy own resilient & backup networks in underserved areas, or in areas lacking wireline infrastructure
  • Government authorities for secure private networks (CCTV, LAN, infokiosk)

Mobile Backhaul

Compared to PtP coverage for the same area, the WiBAS™ PtMP technology demonstrates considerable CapEx reductions and major OpEx savings of up to 70%. WiBAS™ treats each radio link independently and assigns bandwidth dynamically, thus optimizing sector capacity planning and leveraging the radio resource-sharing nature of PtMP. Fast ROI comes from maximizing both sector capacity and the number of served sites or customers. Operators can thus tailor investments to match their growing subscriber base.

Being a multi-service platform (Ethernet / TDM), WiBAS™ efficiently serves the needs of 2G, 3G and 4G mobile backhauling. Several tier-1 mobile operators, worldwide, already enjoy the benefits of WiBAS™. It flexibly adapts to different deployment scenarios, a key feature that reduces network size. Initial investments are kept low, in line with the coverage / capacity objectives, and a pay-as you grow strategy can be applied for the expected business growth.

The WiBAS™ base station hub, when fully interoperable with StreetNode™ small cell backhauling node, provides the perfect solution for covering large urban areas with overlay units, thus increasing the number of in-clutter terminals that have direct line of sight with the base station.

Corporate Access

WiBAS™ delivers the high resiliency and reliability required to fulfill demanding customer SLAs. The capability for sectors along with the rapid network deployment and high-capacity sectors enable WiBAS™ to become a successful alternative to wireline and other wireless solutions, thus realizing fast investment payback. For enterprises and SMEs, WiBAS™ implements LAN-to-LAN / Call Center fixed wireless connections, also providing high-speed Internet access. Sophisticated packet classification, per-service prioritization and Layer 2 / Layer 3 VPNs, allow delivering Carrier Ethernet services, such as:

  • Permanent VLAN connections for geographically-dispersed branches running demanding data applications (CRM, ERP, FTP, etc.)
  • Interconnections among heterogeneous networks with QoS preservation enabling differentiated business applications (such as VoIP and data transfer services)

Large enterprises are able to connect their Call Centers to provider's voice-switched network for a fraction of incumbent's cost. WiBAS™ easily integrates existing systems - IP PBX / Soft Switches / PSTN Gateways / Management & Billing, etc.

Residential broadband access concerns customers mostly engaged with Internet browsing and basic content downloading and those who require more advanced offerings, with high-capacity and high-quality services and with video streaming or VoIP support. Residential access also concerns a market that is price-sensitive as far as the CPE price is concerned. High performance is the priority in this market. Wireless ISPs (WISPs) that plan to deploy wireless broadband networks for their customers in attractive monthly packages need to select equipment vendors that will provide low CapEx solutions and generate profitable investments. The use of WiBAS™-Connect Terminal Stations in WiBAS™ system perfectly fits all the above market requirements. WiBAS™-Connect Terminal Stations operate in area licensed bands (10.5, 26 and 28 GHz) guaranteeing QoS and, along with its very small size, appealing design and very low power consumption offers extremely-reliable broadband access connectivity to SMEs and residential customers in urban and also in the underserved rural areas. WiBAS™-Connect allows up to 60 CPE devices to be registered in the same sector sharing more than half a Gigabit of downlink capacity per sector, without needing hardware upgrades at the hub.
