MOUGINS, France and BARCELONA, Spain, February 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
3Roam, the innovator in advanced networking solutions for high-capacity wireless backhaul, today announces AERO, its full-outdoor high-capacity microwave switch, for Service Providers looking for the rapid and easy interconnection of remote cell sites.
AERO provides 400 Mbps capacity in a single outdoor equipment in the licensed bands from 6 to 38 GHz. It supports Ethernet connectivity to e-Node B, IP base stations, and enables lightweight capacity upgrade for existing TDM sites through 3Roam's Hybrid-WLS gateway. Integrating both radio and carrier switching capabilities into a compact top-of-the-mast unit, AERO removes the need for shelters, air-conditioning and additional switch / router traditionally needed at cell-site for point-to-point microwave interconnection, reducing drastically CAPEX and OPEX without performance compromises.
AERO further improves cell-site savings and network uptime thanks to the Industry's highest radio system gain, combined with a zero-downtime Adaptive Coding and Modulation allowing for smaller antennas and superior link robustness.
AERO incorporates 3Roam's latest advanced Ethernet switch to meet Operators' strong requirements for traffic protection and Quality of Service management for the transport of voice, data and video and combines with 3Roam's WLS split-mount product line for Gigabit-class traffic aggregation to the network. "AERO is the additional solution into 3Roam's existing portfolio for Operators to meet today's requirements for high capacity and low-OPEX solutions," declares Jean-Paul Deschamps, CEO of 3Roam, "In today's limited growth and cost-constrained environment, Operators can't afford to be kept away by traditional vendors from the savings and refinements allowed by advanced IP solutions."
With a power consumption as low as 40 W, AERO is easily powered with a small-size solar panel, in regions with no access to the grid and is therefore ideally suited for deployment in African and Middle-East countries.
3Roam also provides 3View(TM), its Network Management System, providing support for AERO and WLS systems monitoring and management.
AERO will debut on 3Roam's booth at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, February 14-17, 2011, Hall 2, French Pavilion 2F49.
Based in Sophia-Antipolis, France, 3Roam is a leading innovator in advanced networking for high-capacity wireless IP backhaul. 3Roam provides a complete portfolio of microwave transmission products enabling Gigabit-class wireless point-to-point interconnections for Service Providers and Private Networks. 3Roam's products provide advanced Ethernet and IP functionalities required in today's evolving IP networks in the interference free licensed bands from 6 GHz to 38 GHz.
