All-Outdoor IP MW Transmission

omnibas logo

OmniBAS™ OSDR is an all-outdoor unit, part of OmniBAS™ microwave (MW) product family, addressing the operator need for cost-effective, all-outdoor Gigabit IP transmission solutions. It is available at 10.5, 15, 23, 26 and 28 GHz. This unit is based on the unique OSDR (Outdoor Software Defined Radio) platform, which offers state-of-the-art IP connectivity in Point-to-Point (PtP) and Point-to-MultiPoint (PtMP) configurations. Depending on customer-selected software, the OSDR platform operates as an all-outdoor next-generation PtP radio, a PtMP terminal or a PtMP base station / hub, providing at the same time perfect synergy with the newest Intracom Telecom portfolio of products comprising the OmniBAS™, StreetNode™, WiBAS™ and uni|MS™ families.

OmniBAS™ OSDR, representing the PtP realization of OSDR platform, supports market-leading modulations up to 4096-QAM and employs advanced Ethernet and traffic processing functionality to demonstrate exceptional MW radio performance.

Being compatible with OmniBAS™ split-mount (IDU - ODU) links and also being manageable through the same powerful uni|MS™ system, OmniBAS™ OSDR offers unparalleled deployment flexibility for a wide variety of applications such as backhauling of heterogeneous networks (HetNets).
