NEC's iPASOLINK Series to Enhance Backhaul Radio Performance

NEC Corporation of America (NEC) has added a new product to the iPASOLINK Series of Microwave Radios. The iPASOLINK VR1250 is specifically designed to meet the ever increasing demand for greater amounts of data, video, and voice traffic across wireless transport networks, with enhanced convergence capabilities incorporating 12 RF Channels, multiple 10 GbE Ethernet Interfaces, as well as multiple CWDM interfaces in a single chassis.

This Series of Microwave Radios has a global reputation for quality, superior performance and long term reliability. This latest addition provides support for over 10 Gbps transport across Optical and/or Microwave channels in a compact 3RU chassis. Redundant, robust and efficient carrier-class switches deliver over 100 Gbps of switching capacity, while drawing minimal power. With few exceptions, backward compatibility with existing NEC transmitter/receivers allows cost effective migration from NLite Series and iPASOLINK 250/650.

With support for transmit power up to +40 dBm, adaptive modulation rates from QPSK up to 4096 QAM and channel bandwidths up to 80 MHz, it has the most cost effective bits per buck transmit rates in the industry. Nodal capacity increases to 12 channels, with available Layer 1 bonding of up to 8 RF channels in a single LAG. Their patented cross-polarity interference cancellation techniques guarantee maximum throughput, with highly reliable system performance, utilizing fewer RF channels.

The increased power output provides the capability to design longer path lengths with smaller antennas, while maintaining critical system availability, ensuring low CAPEX. The iPASOLINK design reflects their commitment to the Smart Enterprise initiative as well as the outstanding reliability their products are known for. Smart Enterprise provides an IT communications infrastructure that allows companies to have a more predictive business that they can operate at a lower cost and empowers them to be more competitive.

They expect the VR1250 to disrupt the market with its greater feature sets supporting critical communications across converged networks while driving down clients’ OPEX and CAPEX. Customers are gravitating to NEC due to their staying power, continued technology investment and financial stability, as these factors increasingly become more important to our customers.

The iPASOLINK VR1250 is being showcased at the APCO 2016 Conference and Expo, taking place from August 14-17, 2016, at the Orange County Convention Center, Orlando, FL. NEC representatives will be on site and available in booth #427.
