Licensed Microwave Links
Avoid Interference - Own Your Frequency!
Licensed microwave links, also known as fixed wireless backhaul. Licensed microwave wireless bridge radios provide security from the risk of wireless interference from other outdoor wireless bridge systems. Interference can degrade an outdoor wireless bridge system’s performance and in some cases even prevent the system from functioning at all. Licensed microwave link systems can be engineered to provide predictable reliability of 99.999% uptime.
Interference Free Operations Greater Reliability & Higher Security
Licensed microwave wireless bridge systems operate within parts of the radio spectrum (UHF/VHF, 900MHz, 2GHz, 3.65GHz (WiMax), 4.9GHz, 6GHz, 7GHz, 11GHz, 13GHz, 18GHz, 23GHz, and 80GHz) designated by the WPC. To operate a licensed microwave wireless backhaul radio system one must apply for a license from the WPC. Licensed operators are permitted exclusive use of part of the band over an assigned geographic area. Licensed microwave wireless Ethernet bridges can go distances up to 50+ miles and provide data rates of 10Mbps full duplex to GigE Full Duplex (gigabit wireless).
The WPC has opened up the ability to use larger licensed point to point microwave spectrum channels (like in the 11GHz point to point licensed microwave spectrum). They also have allowed for higher ptp wireless modulation schemes up to 1024QAM at channel widths up to 80MHz wide. Plus with recent use of XPIC systems it is much easier to get licensed point to point microwave frequencies on a given path.
Today licensed point to point microwave radios can provide interference free GigE full duplex connectivity at 99.999% predictable reliability, and with <2ms latency. Multiple point to point microwave radios can be installed together and configured for even higher bandwidth, while providing compete failover redundancy, using 2+0, 3+0, and 4+0 configurations. Links upwards of 30+ miles can be achieved. Even further distances can be installed using a wireless repeater from a tall building roof top or communication tower.
Obtaining a WPC license is now a easy and affordable process. URVI Research Labs provides a complete value added service by handling the entire licensing process.
