TwinWave Dual Link Handles GigE

The Elber TwinWave is a Gigabit Ethernet, IP-native full outdoor wireless system that operates in both the licensed and unlicensed bands.

TwinWave from Elber S.r.l. is an IP-native full outdoor system, integrating two radios in a small and easy-to-install housing, that provides extremely high speed connections in the 17 and 24 GHz unlicensed frequency bands and 26GHz. Supporting high-level modulation schemes up to 1024 QAM (with future upgrades to 2048 and 4096 QAM), combined with ACM and XPIC capabilities.

A “real” Gigabit Ethernet radio, TwinWave features a useful value-added function: actually it is the only full outdoor unit able to be connected to a remote split-mount system in the same link, ideal for providing those important last-mile connections. The integrated dual-channel modem supports two active radios to aggregate or switch the traffic between the links in cross-polarization.

The TwinWave Dual Link has up to 2 Gbps aggregate capacity @ 17 GHz, up to 2.5 Gbps aggregate capacity @ 24 GHz or up to 1.8 Gbps aggregate capacity @ 26 GHz. Available modulation schemes include QPSK/16/32/64128/256/512/1024QAM.

Its network data interface includes two RJ Gigabit Ethernet (100/1000Base-T), two x SFP (1000BaseSX/LX), a USB port for system recovery, “In-Band”/”Out-of-Band” Management and it supports RADIUS Server authentication for those who need remote access.

Point-to-Point links can carry data, audio and HD video. Its high capacity backhaul is ideal for last-mile links and it offers stable connections up to 20 Km @ 99,9% availability at highest speed with Integrated antennas.

Special Features include Forward Error Correction with RS Coding, with hit-less and error-less Adaptive Coding & Modulation (ACM) with dynamic capacity allocation and priority data transmission Packet Based Priority System (PBPS).

The units offer a built-in Network Management System (NMS) for http, https, SNMP v1,2,3, TELNET, SSH, and a built-in Bit Error Rate (BER) Tester and a built-in Spectrum Analyzer. Integrated synchronization solution also has AES-128/256 encryption for data confidentiality.
