SIAE’s 24 GHz Unlicensed Radio System is Now Available for Deployment in North America

SIAE MICROELETTRONICA, a supplier and innovator of licensed backhaul solutions, has announced the general availability of its ALFOPlus 24 GHz radio system for deployments in North America. Operating in the FCC Part 15 and Industry Canada RSS-210 unlicensed ISM bands (24.05 – 24.25 GHz), the ALFOPlus24 is based on SIAE MICROELETTRONICA’s Access Link Full Outdoor Plus (ALFOPlus) family of radio systems. With thousands of ALFOPlus links deployed in mobile operator, service provider and private networks worldwide, the ALFOPlus24 provides best-in-class performance in a full-outdoor device.

Utilizing full-duplex division (FDD) modulation of up to 1024QAM, ALFOPlus24 yields over 400 Mbps throughput with very low latency, ideal for real-time applications such as voice & video. Flexibility with ALFOPlus24 means users can choose between fiber (single or multi-mode) and/or copper (CAT5) cables to the radio. Additionally, ALFOPlus24 can be powered directly via a 48-volt mains or via Power over Ethernet, along with simultaneous feeds of direct DC and PoE for an added level of power redundancy to the radio.

Operating in the ISM band, ALFOPlus24 requires no pre-coordination or license, simplifying the link setup and establishing connections. Ideal for service providers and enterprise users, ALFOPlus24 can be immediately deployed in any circumstance with rapid deployments anywhere, anytime.
