DragonWave Intros Sub-6 GHz Microwave System for Urban Small Cells

DragonWave introduced Avenue Link Lite -- a sub-6 GHz point-to-point microwave radio that supports both licensed and unlicensed spectrum and suited for non-line-of-sight(NLOS) scenarios where obstructions are found between link endpoints.

The compact unit, which measures only 7.5 in square including antenna, can be configured and monitored remotely.

It offers low power consumption (under 15W), PoE compatibility,reduced cabling requirements and in-band synchronization which eliminates the need for anexternal synchronization source. The high capacity and low latency capabilities of the AvenueLink Lite make it one of the first LTE-ready NLOS system.

Avenue Link Lite can be deployed using a tree topology, with macrocell traffic aggregation points on rooftops, or with tail, chain or small hub microsites at street level, which reduces interference and offers more flexible network connectivity, as well as simplifying network expansion and helping to ensure protected network architectures.
