Infinet Wireless has released the latest addition to its Point-to-Point (PtP) portfolio of the tried and tested Quanta family. Designed primarily for wireless links in the 5GHz band, Quanta 5-18 is capable of delivering an industry-first throughput of up to 460 Mbit/s in just 40 MHz of spectrum
Powered by Infinet Wireless’ Software Defined Radio (SDR) technology, enabling it to increase network performance several folds, the new Quanta 5-18 also offers significant energy savings thanks to its low power consumption, and even faster deployment owing to its ease of installation.
Delivering stable connection in the most difficult weather conditions, including extreme temperatures down to -40 °C, the solution is ideal for supplying last mile connectivity to enterprise and residential customers and for CCTV networks. It can be easily deployed on a lamp post, building facade, or historical centre and, unlike other wireless solutions which are often comprised of curved details that are hard to paint and impossible to cover with a film, Quanta Q5-18 can be painted over easily to blend with its surroundings.
“This highly reliable yet simple to operate and deploy solution – thanks to its innovative installation mechanism – will have a tangible impact on the ability of service providers to deliver the unfaltering and dependable internet services relied upon by end users globally”, said Kamal Mokrani, Global Vice-President at Infinet Wireless. “This has been achieved thanks to our advanced interference mitigation techniques, enabling the link to work seamlessly even in high interference environments, as found in densely populated cities, and of course its ability to offer the highest spectral efficiency and the highest performance possible in today’s wireless marketplace.
This new solution comes with a plug-and-play configuration and can be managed directly by Infinet Wireless network monitoring platforms. Additionally, users can access the company’s vast and growing educational platform which includes various courses on key wireless technologies, product installation guides, application areas, and more.
Infinet Wireless’ Quanta product family has already been deployed in multiple countries worldwide, including many countries in the Middle East and the LATAM regions, where it has significantly enhanced link performance and reach in dense urban locations, and in between cities, providing in excess of 200Mbps using only a 20 MHz channel size. In Mexico, for example, the University of Guanajanto deployed a number such a solution to link up its main campus with a remote one located more than 105 km away, delivering a staggering net throughput of more than 400 Mbps.
