E-Band Communications Wireless Backhaul

Mobile/Cellular Backhaul


Application: LTE, 3G/4G, WiMAX Backhaul

With the onset of WiMAX and LTE mobile networks, the backhaul data needs for a single cell site have increased 10-20 fold. Typical cell sites could survive on with a handful of T1/E1 links, but with WiMAX and LTE the downstream speeds of a single cell site can reach over 100Mbps. Copper technologies just won't scale to meet these data demands. Therefore, providers will need to look at to new technology to support tomorrow's backhaul needs.

Solution: Wireless GigE Ring

In any given wireless network, 80% of the towers are not served by a fiber plant, so wireless is the most economical way to service these new high speed sites. Whether it is across town or across the street, E-Band Communications' E-Link 1000 70-80GHz point-to-point wireless links provide cost effective fiber alternative. Our Layer 1 full duplex GigE provides building-to-building carrier class reliability without the infrastructure and fiber plant expense. In environments where traditional microwave solutions have been over used, the narrow point-to-point beams of the E-Link 1000 can be installed with little or no interference and with the security of a licensed link.
