RF multicore technology of ALFOPlus2 enables multi-gigabit wireless transmissions at microwave frequency bands for next-generation carrier and enterprise networks


"ALFOPlus2 delivers the highest capacity in a licensed band microwave backhaul solution today" said Augustino Lucenti, VP North American Sales for SIAE MICROELETTRONICA

SIAE MICROELECTTRONICA, Inc. a leading supplier and innovator of licensed microwave backhaul solutions announced today the availability of its newest microwave system, ALFOPlus2 for carriers, service providers and enterprise networks in North America. With the evolution of mobile networks to 4G & LTE and upcoming 5G networks, carriers and mobile operators demand forward looking solutions that will provide the best TCO while boosting capacity and availability of the network.

SIAE MICROELECTTRONICA’s highly innovative platform, ALFOPlus2 achieves the highest throughput available today in a single-all-outdoor microwave solution through the use of RF multi-core technology combined with highly efficient 4096QAM modulation. Supporting RF channel bandwidths from 20 MHz to 80 MHz (FCC) or 14 MHz to 112 MHz (ETSI), ALFOPlus2 yields unprecedented capacity of 2 to 4 Gbps depending on configuration. With integrated XPIC capability, ALFOPlus2 yields flexibility in link planning for congested networks while its unique RF branching system offers simplicity in implementing complex microwave links.

Bolstered by an integrated multi-port gigabit Ethernet switch supporting 12k jumbo frames, ALFOPlus2 is an MEF-certified Carrier-Ethernet platform featuring 802.1p QoS along with hierarchical QoS (HQoS), 802.1q VLAN along with Ethernet OAM per 802.1ag, 802.3ah and Y.1731 and Synchronous Ethernet support per 1588v2 T-BC.

The increased number of application segments demands unique microwave technologies in order to address each of the segments in an effective and efficient way. This scenario yields a higher complexity in microwave portfolio, a challenge for the consistency of the overall network solution. ALFOPlus2 is based on the adoption of Unified Product Architecture, a common Ethernet hardware and software platform through all new generation products including our ALFOPlus80HD and AGS20 systems. SIAE MICROELETTRONICA’s SM-OS Single Operating system, common to all product platforms, accelerates the distribution of new carrier grade features throughout the network. It guarantees consistent behavior and operational capacity for the entire portfolio. The benefit to the operator is commonality in user experience with the equipment, lowering training costs and implementation schedules.

“Carriers and service providers today, are demanding higher throughput solutions capable of meeting their stringent requirements for performance, while exceeding expectations of TCO and availability” said Augustino Lucenti, Vice-President of North American Sales for SIAE MICROELETTRONICA Inc. “Our new ALFOPlus2 facilitates these needs with a highly-integrated and cost-effective backhaul solution that we are proud to bring to North America”.
