NEC’s New iPASOLINK Series Radio Pushes Limits of Radio Performance

NEC’s New iPASOLINKā„¢ Series Radio Pushes Limits of Radio Performance with Highest Power Radio Transmitter Available — Capable of +40dBm

NEC Corporation of America (NEC), a leading provider and integrator of advanced IT, communications, networking and biometric solutions, will reveal its latest advancement in the iPASOLINK Series Radio at the APCO conference in Orlando, FL.

The iPASOLINK VR1250 is specifically designed to meet the ever increasing demand for greater amounts of data, video, and voice traffic across wireless transport networks, with enhanced convergence capabilities incorporating 12 RF Channels, multiple 10GbE Ethernet Interfaces, as well as multiple CWDM interfaces in a single chassis.

NEC’s iPASOLINK Series of Microwave Radios has a global reputation for initial quality, superior performance and long term reliability. This latest addition provides support for over 10Gbps transport across Optical and/or Microwave channels in a compact 3RU chassis. Redundant, robust and efficient carrier-class switches deliver over 100Gbps of switching capacity, while drawing minimal power. With few exceptions, backward compatibility with existing NEC transmitter/receivers allows cost effective migration from NLite Series and iPASOLINK 250/650.

With support for transmit power up to +40dBm, adaptive modulation rates from QPSK up to 4096QAM and channel bandwidths up to 80MHz, the iPASOLINK VR1250 has the most cost effective bits per buck transmit rates in the industry. Nodal capacity increases to 12 channels, with available Layer 1 bonding of up to 8 RF channels in a single LAG. NEC’s patented cross-polarity interference cancellation techniques guarantee maximum throughput, with highly reliable system performance, utilizing fewer RF channels.

The increased power output provides the capability to design longer path lengths with smaller antennas, while maintaining critical system availability, ensuring low CAPEX. The iPASOLINK design reflects NEC’s commitment to its Smart Enterprise initiative as well as the outstanding reliability NEC products are known for. Smart Enterprise provides an IT communications infrastructure that allows companies to have a more predictive business that they can operate at a lower cost and empowers them to be more competitive. iPASOLINK protects budgets with low OPEX, and TCO that you expect from NEC.

“The release of the iPASOLINK VR1250 is proof that NEC continues to invest in technology and development advancements as many of its competitors focus on divesting products and reductions in their workforce,” said Matt Engelmann, vice president for NEC Corporation of America. “We expect the VR1250 will certainly disrupt the market with its greater feature sets supporting critical communications across converged networks while driving down clients’ OPEX and CAPEX. Clients are gravitating to NEC due to our staying power, continued technology investment and financial stability, as these factors increasingly become more important to our customers.”

NEC representatives will be on site and available to discuss the new iPASOLINK VR1250 at the upcoming APCO conference, booth #427, August 14-17 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL. We look forward to seeing you there!

NEC Launches iPASOLINK EX Advanced, 10Gbps High Capacity Radio

NEC Introduces iPASOLINK EX Advanced, 10Gbps High Capacity Radio, taking a major step forward in Boosting E-Band technology.

NEC Corporation of America (NEC), a leading provider and integrator of advanced IT, communications, networking and biometric solutions, will reveal its new iPASOLINK EX Advanced radio at the APCO conference in Orlando, FL. 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 the most adverse 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, booth #427, August 14-17 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL. We look forward to seeing you there!
