OmniBAS™ is a multi-Gigabit smart packet Point-to-Point microwave (PtP MW) solution that ideally fits today's and tomorrow's bandwidth-intensive IP/MPLS transmission applications.
OmniBAS™ ideally implements the MW access & aggregation segments of mobile 4G / 4G+ / 5G heterogeneous networks, extends the reach of fixed broadband to rural areas and rapidly deploys IP communication and control links for utility companies and governmental agencies. It offers multi-Gigabit IP radio capacity supporting market-leading modulations (4096-QAM) and channels up to 112 MHz, while at the same time enables an evolved and smooth migration to an IP/MPLS architecture. Legacy (TDM/SDH) services are seamlessly transported over Pseudowires with carrier-class reliability and the highest availability.
OmniBAS™ allows highly-flexible and cost-optimized link configurations through the use of all-outdoor (OmniBAS™-BX, OmniBAS™-OSDR) and split-mount (OmniBAS-2Wcx) units in tail sites, or through medium/high nodal solutions (OmniBAS-4W / OmniBAS-8W) in traffic aggregation sites, all from the same platform.
OmniBAS™ CBAN (Converged Backhaul Aggregation Node), in particular, is a unique multi-technology solution allowing aggregation of PtP, Point-to-MultiPoint (PtMP) and E-Band links, and supporting a wide range of connectivity options (E1, E3, SDH, GbE, 10GbE).
The advanced radio and smart packet networking features of OmniBAS™ products assure bandwidth optimization, carrier-class service delivery and highest-possible availability. The per-link line rate, on a single 56/112 MHz channel, reaches up to 880 / 1,760 Mbit/s (1,700 / 3,200 Mbit/s with XPIC), while a single 1RU (2RU) indoor unit can support up to four (eight) links and eight (sixteen) radios . Moreover, advanced IP packet optimization techniques increase throughput even further.
The OmniBAS™ comprehensive portfolio of IP MW products allows for flexible deployments and optimized Total Cost of Ownership (TCO):
OmniBAS™ combines leading capacity with superior radio characteristics and advanced IP functionality to deliver top-notch performance:
OmniBAS™ supports a large variety of network topologies that meet the transmission requirements of:
Two indicative OmniBAS™ deployment examples are shown below.
A wide range of last-mile and nodal deployment scenarios can be implemented for mobile backhaul, as prescribed by the IP backhaul agility of the OmniBAS™ product family.
By using several OmniBAS units, native Ethernet rings can be implemented, as defined in the ITU-T G.8032v2 specification. Such rings will have the following characteristics:
