RADWIN, global provider of sub-6 GHz wireless broadband solutions, has announced that it will present its solution for non-line-of-sight small cell backhaul at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, February 2012.
RADWIN's solution backhauls traffic from 3G and LTE small cells in non-line-of-sight conditions. RADWIN's point-to-point and point-to-multipoint systems are installed in over 140 countries worldwide. The solutions are now in LTE small cell trials by leading European and US carriers, where the high capacity and robust performance of the links under tough NLOS conditions is validated.
Demand for data is soaring, driving mobile operators to deploy small cells (e.g. LTE Picocells) at the street-level to enhance network capacity and coverage, especially in urban areas. Backhauling small cells poses significant challenges and necessitates non-line-of-sight transmission. RADWIN's telco-grade solutions combine advanced technologies and RADWIN's extensive experience in carrier sub-6GHz backhaul. The wireless links are singularly capable of operating in dense urban environments where there are many obstacles that block line-of-sight (e.g. buildings, trees) and ensure robust transmission in dynamic street level conditions where there is high interference and severe multipath.
Adi Nativ, RADWIN's vice president of marketing and business development, stated: 'Mobile operators that are adopting the small cell deployment architecture face the challenge of backhauling in non-line-of-sight. These operators are turning to RADWIN because we have a proven solution that is based on years of accumulated experience in NLOS backhaul deployments and over 100,000 radio installations worldwide. RADWIN is collaborating with leading players in the industry to deliver the most advanced NLOS backhaul solution that will enable 3G/LTE small cell network deployments in the coming year.'
