Huawei Shows IP + Microwave Radio

Huawei unveiled its OptiX RTN 980 platform for integrated hybrid and pure packet microwave transmissions. Huawei also announced an upgraded version of its OptiX 900 series that provides a throughput of 1 Gbps per frequency carrier.

The OptiX RTN 980 supports the aggregation of microwave transmission in 14 RF directions and can evolve to support aggregation of microwave transmission in 28 RF directions. The OptiX RTN 980 also supports TDM and packet cross-connections, enabling evolution from TDM to All-IP services. With a 22 Gbps packet cross-connection capacity, the OptiX RTN 980 also supports high density microwave deployment.

The new OptiX RTN 900 series -- which includes the OptiX RTN 910, OptiX RTN 950, and OptiX RTN 980 products -- integrates advanced compression technology to increase throughput per frequency carrier from 400 Mbps to 1 Gbps. In addition, the upgraded series supports All-IP services evolution with multi protocol label switching (MPLS) technology.
