Stratex announces the availability of the Eclipse wireless network transmission system. The system enables wireless network node configurations in the smallest form factor available, supporting up to six independent radio traffic paths from a modular Intelligent Node Unit (INU). A TDM bus architecture enables traffic routing between traffic paths by software, without local cabling. Available in frequency bands from 5 to 38 GHz, the system also introduces SuperPDH networking that provides scalable capacity with selectable modulation, incrementally from 4x E1/T1 up to 64x E1 or 84x T1, all under software control. Eclipse also supports Nx10/100baseT Ethernet transport with scalable bandwidth assignment, Nx E3/DS3 and STM-1/OC-3 capacities either as initially installed or upgradable later. A feature called LiquidBandwidth allows the simultaneous transmission of 10/100baseT Ethernet together with NxE1/DS1 TDM traffic, with scalable capacity. This creates a solution for the high-speed transport of enterprise data applications, backhaul of IEEE 802.xx base stations, and support for next-generation mobile network migration to all-IP infrastructure.
