ExcelFlex 6-38 GHz

ExcelFlex 6-38 GHz



The ExcelFlex™ is a full featured microwave radio for the global telecommunications market. It consists of a Software Defined Indoor Unit™ (SDIDU™) and Outdoor Unit (ODU). The ExcelFlex radios include a state-ofthe-art single chip modem ASIC, allowing a highly integrated IDU with flexible modulation for spectral efficiency and powerful Forward-Error-Correcting schemes. The ExcelFlex is designed to support flexible payload types and data rates, as well as payload switching, in 1+0 unprotected, 2+0 east/west, 1+1 protected, and 4+0 configurations.

Advanced capabilities: The Software Defined IDU includes an integrated Crosspoint Switch that allows a total of 160 E1s (200 T1s) to be mapped from and to any of three different ports: East Modem (maximum 64E1/84T1), West Modem (maximum 64E1/84T1), and Local Front Panel (maximum 32E1/32T1). The Crosspoint Switch gives systems integrators and network designers flexibility in designing ring and linear point-to-point-to-point architecture networks.

Reasons to Buy ExcelFlex 6-38 GHz

The ExcelFlex offers volume capacity and proven performance for applications worldwide. It represents a new generation of PDH-SDH radio-relay transmission equipment. The ExcelFlex was designed to simplify product logistics and overall product life cycle costs. The field upgradeable architecture reduces capital and operating expenditures for field installation, maintenance, training, and spares while maximizing product reliability. It is ideally suited for long distance, low and medium capacity communication solutions.

The ExcelFlex Consecutive Point Architecture supports a ring/consecutive point configuration. This creates a self-healing redundancy that is more reliable than traditional point-to-point networks.

It also automatically adjusts transmit power in discrete increments in response to RF interference, simplifying deployment, network management, and enabling dense deployment.
