RAD Unveils Point-to-Multipoint Ethernet Radio

RAD Data Communications introduced its new Airmux-5000 carrier-class point-to-multipoint Ethernet radio system featuring 200 Mbps of aggregate throughput over unlicensed links, coupled with an ability to supply a guaranteed bandwidth SLA per subscriber.

The Airmux-5000 operates over 4.9 to 6 GHz frequencies. It leverages MIMO and OFDM, which ensures nLOS (non-line-of-sight and near-line-of-sight) deployment, to transmit more throughput over less channel bandwidth. A single Airmux-5000 base station supports up to 16 remote Subscriber Units (SUs) with guaranteed bandwidth and low latency under sector load. RAD said the Airmux-500 provides a range of up to 40 kilometers (25 miles).
