VectaStar: market leading microwave for next generation backhaul and access mobile networks
Bringing a wealth of advantages to operators, VectaStar is used across the globe to provide the wireless backhaul link from operator’s mobile cell sites back to their core network.
Utilising our market leading innovative point-to-multipoint (PMP) microwave technology, VectaStar brings the following advantages to operators:
Proven to increase capacity and efficiency
• Proven to reduce spectrum requirements by at least 40%, whilst delivering identical service
• Dynamic bandwidth allocation – uses spare capacity to enhance peak rates to the mobile network
• Capacity to handle current and predicted data loads
• High spectral efficiency.
Quick deployment and low cost
• Immediate CAPEX savings relative to alternative technologies
• Total Cost of Ownership savings of 49% over five years
• Fast network design and deployment
• Simple network configuration.
Minimal environmental impact
• Nearly half the radios required compared to alternative technologies – saving up to 40% of energy and carbon emissions from manufacture and shipping.
VectaStar is proven for all-IP RAN backhaul, along with supporting TDM and ATM networks and their migration to an all-IP RAN.
As the world’s highest performance multipoint microwave platform, VectaStar delivers enough capacity to backhaul a network of 20MHz 2 x 2 MIMO LTE base stations.
This scalability gives operators the flexibility to build sustainable IP backhaul solutions for the future.
