Narad and Strix Systems Team on Wireless Mesh for MSOs

Narad Networks and Strix Systems completed interoperability testing of their complementary Carrier Ethernet solutions. The combined solution provides network operators with a new, high capacity, carrier class option for plant extension and wireless mesh (Wi-Fi) backhaul for metro areas.

The companies said Narad's switched Ethernet-over-coax solution combined with Strix Outdoor Wireless System (OWS-2400) supports performance exceeding an aggregate rate of 35 Mbps from end-to-end. This gives operators the ability to offer MEF E-Line and E-LAN services over wireless mesh with coaxial cable used as backhaul.
