DragonWave Inc., a leading global supplier of packet microwave radio systems for mobile and access networks, announced the commercial availability of its 60 GHz technology in the Horizon® Compact+ and Avenue Link product lines. Currently in production, DragonWave’s 60 GHz products have already been deployed in successful small cell mobile operator trials. These products are well suited for metro deployment in small cell architectures due to their small form factor and high-capacity, low-delay transport capabilities. Because the 60 GHz spectrum is widely available and generally offered at a lower cost than other bands, the newly incorporated technology offers network operators more product options to cost effectively plan and deploy emerging small cell and LTE/LTE-A backhaul deployments around the world.
Barry Industries, an ISO9001:2008 certified, ITAR registered manufacturer of high quality thick film resistors, terminations, attenuators and high temperature co-fired ceramic (HTCC) packaging, introduces a new 0904 size chip attenuator for Ku, K and Ka Bands. The AV0904GA attenuator has been characterized to 30 GHz, features gold wirebondable I/O terminals with epoxy mount ground pads and is rated to 750 mW. Typical VSWR is 1.20:1 from DC to 18 GHz and 1.50:1 to 30 GHz.
ABI Research expects the market for small cell backhaul equipment to grow to over $5 billion in 2018, up from a forecast $487 million for 2013 representing a 48% compound annual growth rate (CAGR).
Ceragon Networks Ltd. has received further orders of $7 million from Vodacom Tanzania to upgrade and support backbone links across the country
Infineon Technologies has started the production of its BGTx0 chipsets for wireless backhaul communication systems. The transceiver family provides a complete radio frequency (RF) front-end for wireless communication in 57-64 GHz, 71-76 GHz, or 81-86 GHz millimeter wave bands. Paired with a baseband/modem, the system solution requires less space, offers improved reliability and lower cost for the critical wireless backhaul links needed in mobile base stations that support LTE/4G networks.
LTE-TDD will go mainstream in 2014, and it is not just about China Mobile’s recently announced commitment to spend $3.3 billion on rolling out 207,000 LTE-TDD base stations. In the US, Clearwire is anticipated to have rolled out 5,000 LTE-TDD base stations which will play a complementary role in Sprint’s overall LTE service plans. Around the world, there are 60 LTE-TDD deployments, of which 21 have commercially launched.
Idea Cellular has selected Ceragon Networks Ltd. to modernize thousands of wireless backhaul connections around India to support the data growth visualized from 3G and future technologies.
Siklu Communication Ltd., a leading provider of millimeter wave systems, announced the addition of its small cell wireless backhaul solutions to the Cisco® Small Cell Wireless Backhaul Ecosystem.
Ceragon Networks Ltd. announced that a large Asia Pacific mobile operator is deploying the company’s solutions as part of its LTE network upgrade.
What: M/A-COM Technology Solutions (MACOM) will showcase a broad portfolio of new products for aerospace and defense, wireless backhaul, CATV, and optical communications applications in booth #930 at the IEEE MTT International Microwave Symposium (IMS) tradeshow in Seattle, Washington, June 4-6, 2013.
