NEC Launches iPASOLINK EX Advanced, High Capacity Radio

NEC's Ex Advanced takes a major step forward in Boosting E-Band technologya

Irving, Texas - August 9, 2016 - NEC Corporation of America (NEC), a leading provider and integrator of advanced IT, communications, networking and biometric solutions, today announced the launch of the new iPASOLINK EX Advanced, an ultra-compact radio communication system utilizing Adaptive Modulation and Bandwidth together enabling 10Gbps wireless throughput capacity in a single channel.

This transmission capacity delivers carrier grade Ethernet functionality (H-QoS, ERPS) and is equivalent to that of optical fibers, making the new product ideal for use in mobile backhaul networks for high-speed mobile services, such as LTE-Advanced and 5G.

The new radio, adopting E-band millimeter wave frequency range (71-86GHz), achieves low latency and high transmission capacity of 10Gbps within a single channel, more than three times higher than NEC's previous iPASOLINK EX model.

The new product's Adaptive Modulation and Bandwidth Radio (AMBR) feature enables dynamic adjustment of its modulation method and communication bandwidth according to the particular application, weather conditions and link distance, allowing it to maintain high quality network connections even in severe weather conditions.

The new iPASOLINK EX Advanced is approximately 30% smaller than the previous iPASOLINK EX model, improving site acquisition and installation costs. The integrated 10GbE interfaces allows it to efficiently transmit high capacity data via optical fiber to core networks.

"As data demands have increased, capacity has become a significant concern for network planners who need to ensure throughput, security and availability," said Matt Engelmann, vice president for NEC Corporation of America. "These concerns apply to all transport mediums and I am pleased to confirm our new radios like iPASOLINK Ex Advanced meet these demands and help transport network operators deliver higher quality network services for enhanced user experience. These enhancements are industry leading and indicative of NEC's continued investment in radio technology."

NEC representatives will be on site and available to discuss the new iPASOLINK EX Advanced at the upcoming APCO conference in booth #427, August 14-17 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL.
