Flex4G Gigabit Wireless

Ultra High Availablity Wireless BackhauL Solution for 4G/LTE Networks

As mobile data consumption increases exponentially, operators are looking for backhaul solutions that provide the lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) with the flexibility to easily scale to meet tomorrow’s bandwidth demands.

The Flex4G-UHA  Gigabit Wireless system from Case Communications has been designed to alleviate the strain on backhaul connections by combining advanced radio and modem capabilities with carrier-grade Ethernet features. Implementing BPSK modulation achieves improved link budget compared to high-QAM systems. Furthermore, incorporating the patented AdaptRate™ technology achieves an additional 10dB link budget gain during periods of inclement weather.

Flex4G-UHA Gigabit Wireless link provides comprehensive timing support required for 4G/LTE deployments, including Synchronous Ethernet and IEEE 1588.v2 with hardware-based time stamping for one-step or two-step clocks. With low power consumption and PoE capability, Flex4G-UHA provides all of the above in an environmentally friendly, compact and lightweight, zero-footprint all-outdoor solution.
