RF Com  now supplying world’s first 10Gbps wireless millimetre wave point-to-point link (PPC-10G)

March 2016

Elva-1

RF Com are pleased to announce we are able to provide the world’s first 10Gbps wireless millimetre wave point-to-point link (PPC-10G). It has been designed and developed by our partner company Elva-1.

The PPC-10G is the first commercially available 10Gbps wireless P2P millimetre wave link in the world.

The PPC-10G is available in E-Band at 71-76 GHz and 81-86 GHz, this band is covered by a light licence from Ofcom in the UK. It is also available at 40-5 – 43.5 GHz [Q-Band].

Some of the Point to Point applications for the PPC-10G include, 4G/LTE Backhaul, Corporate Campus Networks, IPTV and Wireless ISP Backbone.

QAM 254 technology means only 2 GHz of bandwidth is required for full 10 Gbps data rate.

It has a range of up to 4.4Km in the UK and up to 13.1Km in the Middle East, using Adaptive Code and Modulation this allows the link to obtain the highest data rate for the climatic conditions, this gives a reliable link even in heavy rainfall or sand storms.

Up to Four PPC-10G parallel links can be installed in the same location and combined to give a 40 Gbps channel with no mutual interference.

The PPC-10G link is now available for trial, this will allow you to test the PPC-10G in your own networks for up to 3 months. The PPC-10G is also available for purchase and monthly rental.
