Airmux-5000 High Capacity Point to Multipoint Wireless System 

 The RAD Airmux-5000 is a carrier-class broadband point-to-multipoint radio solution for Ethernet traffic.  This high capacity Point-to-Multipoint Wireless Radio System offers:

• Carrier-class cost-effective broadband wireless radio system with Layer-2 Ethernet capabilities
• Up to 200 Mbps point-to-multipoint solution for enterprise, residential, private and video surveillance networks that demand assured performance with guaranteed bandwidth for Ethernet services
• Multiband operation over 3.3 to 3.8 GHz* and 4.8 to 6 GHz frequencies
• Guaranteed SLA and capacity per Subscriber Unit
• High reliability and availability based on robust air interface protocol

The Airmux-5000 is a carrier-class, cost-effective point-to-multipoint broadband wireless system. It includes Base Stations (BS) and Subscriber Units (SU) for transmitting over an extensive range of frequency bands: 3.3 to 3.8 GHz* and 4.8 to 6 GHz bands. The Airmux-5000 is suitable for deployment in FCC, IC and ETSI-regulated countries. Ensuring the highest spectrum efficiency available in the market, Airmux-5000 delivers greater throughput over smaller channel bandwidth.

High spectrum efficiency results in additional network revenue, reduced spectrum license fees and increased flexibility in frequency planning. Airmux-5000 is the ideal wireless system for business access users demanding high capacity throughput and Ethernet SLA assurance. The Airmux product line is part of RAD’s Axcess+ portfolio for Multiservice Access Platform and First Mile solutions. The portfolio combines extensive support for legacy services with future-proof Ethernet capabilities to address the challenges faced by utilities, transportation networks, carriers, and mobile operators in migrating to next-generation networks and services with flexibility, efficiency and carrier-class reliability.

The most common wireless applications are described below:

Service Providers and ISPs Providing IP backhaul of 4G/broadband services in point-to-multipoint topologies, Airmux-5000 offers broadband access for remote, rural and underserved communities:
• nLOS (no line of sight) in urban environment
• Long haul in rural setting. Large corporate clients can build their networks to eliminate the recurring fee of incumbent leased line services, while maintaining a secured dedicated capacity per site.

Private Networks
Airmux-5000 can be used in high-capacity inter-branch connectivity applications for university campuses, health care organizations, government institutions, large enterprises and public establishments with high traffic requirements.

Security and Surveillance
Aggregation and backhaul of traffic from multiple collocated megapixel video cameras, make Airmux-5000 suitable for homeland security applications, municipal ‘safe city’ projects, and border control installations.

Medium Capacity Corporate Access application for the RAD Airmux-5000

Airmux multiplexers consist of a mast- or wall-mountable High-Capacity Base Station (HBS) operating at multiple frequencies of 5.x GHz, and PoE devices. Each HBS supports up to 16 remote High- Capacity Subscriber Units (HSUs) with aggregated throughputs of 10, 20 and 50 Mbps.

Built on advanced MIMO and OFDM technologies, the Airmux-5000 system provides a high-capacity link at channel bandwidth of 10*, 20, or 40* MHz. This guarantees a robust air interface able to withstand strong RF interference and harsh ambient conditions.

Data transmitted over the air interface is encrypted using Advanced Encryption System (AES) with a 128-bit encryption key.

When the link quality is low, Airmux-5000 automatically searches for a clear channel within a pre-selected list of frequencies.

Because RAD Airmux-5000 operates at license-exempt frequencies, it can be deployed in record time, eliminating the costs and delays involved in leasing lines or trenching fiber.

Hub Site Synchronization (HSS) enables collocating multiple radios by reducing the interference that normally occurs when several radios transmit and receive in close proximity to one another. HSS provides a complex radio environment of mixed services and channel bandwidth frequencies. The collocation feature requires ordering the HSS unit, as well as its synchronization cables. * Available starting from version 3.2.
Note: Like any other RF deployment, the wireless operation is highly dependent on factors such as available frequencies, the physical space between radios, other interfering radios. HSS does not eliminate the need for careful RF planning to ensure the design will work as required.
For long distance coverage, synchronization can be obtained using a GPS Synchronization Unit (GSU). The GSU reduces the interference between the collocated radios, by providing a GPS signal simultaneously to ODUs at all locations.

RAD Airmux-5000 uses of dual bipolar antennas to transmit the same data through both radio links. This ensures data transmission integrity under harsh conditions.

A single SNMP-based network management application (Airmux Manager) is used to control the Airmux-5000 system. RADview-EMS, RAD’s SNMP-based management software provides access to the Airmux Manager via its topology map. The Airmux Manager Spectrum View utility*  is an RF survey tool enabling link installation prior to full link service activation. It provides comprehensive and clear spectral measurement information for easier installations.
