New features are aimed at mobile backhaul customers looking to reduce CAPEX.

With these new features, we feel that SkyWay-LM, our licensed microwave solution, will meet the needs of carriers at a very competitive price

Solectek Corporation, a leading manufacturer of wireless broadband equipment based in San Diego, CA, announced the addition of an enhanced feature set to its licensed microwave backhaul line, the SkyWay-LM Series. These new features are designed to address the telecom carrier market where reliability and versatility are of utmost concern. As the telecom backhaul market continues to grow and become more competitive, the LM-series is now positioned to meet all the needs of a carrier's deployment at a very attractive cost structure.

Two features have been added to the new generation of the LM Series.
TDM Ports. The number of T1/E1 ports has been increased from 4 to 16 in the new LM Series. Despite the gradual switch to Ethernet-IP in many carrier networks, TDM remains a dominant mobile backhaul configuration. As demand for capacity increases, customers often find it more convenient to preserve the TDM architecture rather than to overhaul the network architecture and convert to an all-IP solution. The availability of 16 TDM ports enables the LM-series to meet most of today's TDM mobile backhaul needs.

Standby. A 1+1 hot standby system provides ultimate reliability to customers that require best-of-class availability. Upon detection of equipment degradation or failure, network traffic is automatically routed to the redundant path for a seamless and continuous operation.

"With these new features, we feel that SkyWay-LM, our licensed microwave solution, will meet the needs of carriers at a very competitive price," says Dr. Eric Lee, CEO of Solectek.

"Over the years, Solectek has systematically built itself to be a one-stop wireless solution vendor from unlicensed access to WiMAX, mobile broadband, and now a complete backhaul portfolio. Carriers can purchase both last mile access and backhaul systems with system integration done by Solectek -- all with a single phone number to call for customer support," adds Dr. Lee.

In addition to these new features, the LM Series microwave links have the following key features:

  • Total system capacity of 160 Mbps, full duplex.
  • Flexible configuration of Ethernet and TDM traffic allocation.
  • Native TDM traffic with no protocol conversion between circuit and packet switching.
  • Bandwidth grooming on Ethernet ports.
  • Full remote management features, including SNMP, web and serial interfaces.
