Using Calibration to Optimize Performance in Crucial Measurements
DragonWave Inc., a leading global supplier of packet microwave radio systems for mobile and access networks, announced the availability of higher modulation modes of up to 2048 QAM on its Horizon packet microwave products. This higher modulation allows the radios to transport up to 37 percent more data through existing microwave channels, which significantly improves spectral efficiency and, correspondingly, lowers operators' cost per bit. When DragonWave's unique Bandwidth Accelerator feature – the industry's only wire-speed bulk data compression technology – is enabled, spectral efficiency is further enhanced 25 to 100 percent depending on traffic patterns.
This unmatched spectral efficiency furthers the lead
With 2048 QAM, customers can achieve greater than 500 Mbps of transport in a Horizon Compact+ all-outdoor system and up to a Gigabit with
