Peraso Inc announced that Zinwell has adopted Peraso's X120 chipset for its new 2.5 Gb Ethernet Bridge radio, the ZWR-V622.

Utilizing Peraso's phased array antenna technology, the ZWR-V622 enables fiber-speed connectivity without the need or cost of pulling fiber. A 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi back-up are also included for robust availability in all weather conditions. The ZWR-V622 is an easy to install, low-cost solution for bridging networks between buildings and across geographical obstacles, especially in dense urban environments.

"Zinwell is recognized as a leader in consumer and enterprise networking products. We are pleased they have selected Peraso's chipset for their first 60 GHz solution," said Ron Glibbery, Peraso's CEO. "We believe the 2.5 Gb Ethernet interface is in the mainstream now, and Zinwell's product will help fill the demand for this class of reliable wireless connectivity."

The 60 GHz frequency band provides extensive RF spectrum, which is ideal for fixed wireless applications delivering multi-gigabit data service. With up to 14 GHz of spectrum availability and the use of narrow-beam, phased array antenna technology, 60 GHz mmWave radios do not suffer from the traffic congestion seen in the 5 to 6 GHz Wi-Fi bands and can reliably deliver multi-gigabit throughput.

"We are excited to announce the availability of the ZWR-V622, our first 60 GHz product," said Kevin Tsai, Zinwell's vice president of broadcast broadband communication. "Peraso's mmWave technology has proven that it can deliver the performance and reliability demanded by our customers and is a no-compromise alternative to costly copper or fiber installations."

ZWR-V622 key features include:

  • Multi-Gb data rates
  • 2.5 Gbps Ethernet
  • Up to 275 m data transmission with 1 Gbps
  • Low latency transmissions
  • 802.3 at PoE up to 25.5 W
  • IP67 waterproof rating
