Harmonic extends FLXlink product line to ultra high capacity backhaul
Harmonic now offers an ultra high capacity wireless backhaul solution, called FLXLink, that allows operators to efficiently and securely transport digital voice, data and video content to and from the wireless edge. FLXLink addresses the need for increased wireless bandwidth as consumers increasingly rely on mobile multimedia applications.
The new backhaul system provides up to 10 times the service carrying capacity of Harmonic's existing FLXLink T1/E1 system, offering more flexibility in backhauling GSM, GPRS, 3G, WiFi and other wireless services.
The FLXLink, with eight T1/E1 connections and a gigabit Ethernet port, is ideally suited to handle advanced mobile applications. As with the other FLXLink CWDM-based products family, which includes 100Mb/s and 1Gb/s systems as well as a version offering four T1/E1 connections and a Fast Ethernet (100Mb/s) port, the new FLXLink system is modular.
The FLXLink wireless backhaul solution is fully compatible with T1/E1 and Ethernet/IP equipment in the operator's network as well as at the wireless tower and their customer's site. It can also accommodate multiple FLXLink systems and offers redundant DC or AC power options.
