Due to the popularity of smartphones and tablets in recent years, along with the growing volumes of content handled by such devices, there has been a sharp increase in traffic passing through mobile networks and other communications channels. As a result, there is a significant need to increase the capacity of wireless communications infrastructure that complements mobile wireless base stations and fibre-optic cables.
Operating in the millimeter-wave E-band, which allows access to a wider radio frequency spectrum, the BroadOne GX4000 Series from Fujitsu uses Impulse Radio wireless technology to achieve transmission rates of 3 Gbps. In addition, given its compact and lightweight form factor, the BroadOne GX4000 Series is easy to install, and it can be employed in a host of different applications, such as providing service around waterway crossings, where it is difficult to lay fiber-optic cable, as well as for use at traffic-heavy events and for temporary radio relays.
Key Technology Features:
1. Realizes high-quality, high-capacity wireless communications
Using high capacity data rate of 3 Gbps, the technology provides high-speed, high-quality wireless communications with a hop distance up to about 3 km. In addition, the BroadOne GX4000 Series supports standard Ethernet (10G BASE-LR) and CPRI (2.4576 Gbps) traffic interfaces, making it versatile for use in different network architectures.
2. Energy-efficient and compact for easy installation anywhere
The BroadOne GX4000 Series consumes a mere 30 W and measures only 25 × 25 × 6.5 cm (4 Litre), making it both power-efficient and compact. Given its compact and lightweight form factor, it can be utilized as a temporary link requiring mobility, as well as for events and rapid network recovery.
