Norwegian wireless company Nera has unveiled a high capacity link that provides four times the bandwidth of current solutions.

Nera has been testing the equipment for over a month in Jordan, on behalf of one of the country’s two mobile networks.

By installing four STM-1 capacity links on one antenna the company is able to offer four times the bandwidth.

“Usually what has been offered is one fourth of this capacity,” said Omar Kurdi, marketing consultant. “It’s a big difference. What Nera has been able to do is it has been able to put four radios together on one antenna, providing four high capacity connections, on one antenna, in one direction, and it’s a very safe method because it can be configured in many different ways.”

The performance of the system can be monitored from anywhere in the world using internet protocol. So far the test unit has survived some difficult weather conditions.

“It’s been running now for more than a month for testing and it has been error free ever since,” said Kurdi. “We are extremely happy. Jordan’s climate can be very harsh. Last week we’ve had more than 10” of snow and we have heavy rain sometimes. This link has undergone intensive climate changes and it has survived with no problem at all.”
