Motorola Offers New PMP Fixed Wireless Solutions for 5.4 / 5.8 GHz

Motorola announced the latest addition to its point-to-multipoint (PMP) fixed wireless broadband portfolio. The PMP 430 wireless broadband distribution and access network solution offers increased throughput rates and better range in the 5.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz frequency bands. It can be can be co-located with existing Motorola PMP wireless broadband networks to offer service providers greater connectivity from their existing access point locations and is an approved solution for providing broadband connectivity within the guidelines of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

Motorola's PMP 430 fixed wireless broadband and access network solution features Orthogonal Frequency Divisional Multiplexing (OFDM) technology to deliver high throughput and long range as well as line of sight (LOS) and near-line of sight (nLOS) performance. Offering more than 40 Mbps of total aggregate throughput per access point sector, the system can deliver more than 160 Mbps of throughput from a single tower location to difficult-to-reach subscribers, including those in multipath urban or rural areas. The PMP 430's higher gain antennas and OFDM technology provide extended ranges of up to 40 miles (64 km) when the subscriber module is configured with a passive LENS or reflector. Motorola's latest solution also offers low one-way latency of less than 3.5 msec, enabling customers to provide high Quality of Service (QoS) for latency-sensitive voice and video services. The throughput rates of the PMP 430 subscriber modules can be upgraded easily from 4 to 40 Mbps via a software key system to meet customers' changing bandwidth requirements.
