InfiNet Wireless to showcase InfiLINK XG at Mobile World Congress
Product is a spectral-efficient sub-7 GHz point-to-point wireless broadband solution
InfiNet Wireless, global provider of fixed broadband wireless connectivity solutions, will unveil the most advanced version of its product, the InfiLINK XG, at this year’s Mobile World Congress which will be held in Barcelona from 22-25 February, 2016.
The sub-7 GHz point-to-point wireless broadband solution is a Point-to-Point solution based on the Software Defined Radio (SDR) platform developed entirely by InfiNet’s engineers. It is a brand new design, offering an improved spectral efficiency of up to 14 bps/Hz, as well as a capacity surpassing 500Mbps in just 40 MHz of spectrum.
This new generation of wireless solutions was designed by Infinet to primarily relieve the bottleneck problems experienced by mobile service providers in the backhauling part of their 3G/4G networks. The InfiLINK XG is also quickly becoming an ideal solution for LTE Small Cell transport networks in restrained urban and smart city infrastructures.
This new solution was made possible through a number of software developments which enabled further support in providing IEEE1588-based timing transmission. Additionally, InfiNet’s R&D team also improved the XG’s Non-Line-of-Sight (NLOS) capabilities by designing a series of "extra-robust" modulation-coding schemes, as well as removing a number of air transmission overheads, consequently increasing the throughput by up to 20%.
“We are pleased to be returning to the Mobile World Congress to showcase our updated portfolio designed specifically to meet the needs of the mobile service provider market segment,” said Kamal Mokrani, Global Vice President at InfiNet Wireless. “This includes our advanced InfiLink XG product, which has proven high throughput, high reliability in extreme operating conditions and ultra-low latency, making it an ideal choice for our clients all over the globe.”
The InfiLINK XG will soon be introduced in a number of new licensed and unlicensed frequency bands, such as in 2GHz, 3GHz, and 4GHz, giving operators freedom to deploy their backhaul networks through re-allocating chunks of their LTE spectrum, utilizing frequencies of now-redundant WiMAX networks or using unlicensed bands in both cities and rural areas. InfiNet Wireless already has these solutions operating successfully in the 5GHz and 6GHz bands. The company’s main objective is to always find the perfect fit by providing the best spectral efficiency and enabling service operators of all types to squeeze their valuable spectrum for the maximum number of megabits per second, all while maintaining the lowest latency possible.
InfiNet Wireless’ stand will be located in Hall 1-1E46 at MWC2016.
