Overview

Evo™ XPAND IP+ is an advance version of XPAND IP radio with higher capacity and Ethernet features. Combining advanced Ethernet and TDM networking functionality with best-in-class microwave radio performance, Evo™ XPAND IP+ facilitates cost effective, risk-free migration to IP/Ethernet and can be integrated in any pure IP/Ethernet, Native2 (hybrid) or TDM network.

Evo™ XPAND IP+ features a powerful, integrated Ethernet switch for advanced networking functionality and an optional TDM cross-connect for nodal site applications. With advanced service management and Operation Administration & Maintenance (OA&M) tools, the solution simplifies network design, reduces CAPEX and OPEX and improves overall network availability and reliability to support services with stringent SLA.

The Evo™ XPAND IP+ covers the entire licensed frequency spectrum and offers a wide capacity range. Taking into account Quality of Experience (QoE), the Evo™ XPAND IP+ is engineered to deliver up to max 2Gbps of IP traffic per channel compare to XPAND IP radio.

The XPAND IP+

A carrier grade platform that is scalable and flexible to meet the need for 2G/3G/4G/LTE/WiMAX-backhaul and high capacity Metro Ethernet. The product is built around a Layer-2 (Ethernet) switch fabric, and has built in features for traffic aggregation and switching in different radio directions. UNI and INNI interfaces can be configured per port, and Synchronous Ethernet is supported on all interfaces. The radio frame supports a flexible mix of native Ethernet- and E1 traffic, and adaptive modulation can be enabled to increase throughput for best effort traffic. Layer-2 or layer-3, Enhance QoS is available for traffic prioritization on congested links.

Aggregation of Ethernet traffic is used to combine traffic to/ from several radios to allow true Gigabit throughput. Co-channel operation with XPIC, Space Diversity Combining and Error Correction are utilized to build highly reliable networks efficiently. A common ODU for all capacities enables easy upgrade from low capacity to high capacity without climbing towers.

IFU

The baseband part of the terminal is based on one or several IFUs. The Universal IFU has plug-in units making the system very scalable and capable of meeting the interface and configuration needs. Terminal configurations range from non-protected or Hot StandBy (HSB) to radio and also support line interface protection. Interfaces include E1, GbE, STM-1 and Auxiliary interfaces.

ODU-SP

The Standard Power ODU-SP operates in the frequency range of 6-38 GHz, carries 10 Mbps up to 500 Mbps over a single carrier with a range of modulations from QPSK to 256 QAM over 3.5 - 56 MHz bandwidth. With XPIC, it can go up to 1 Gb/s using CCDP. Configuration supported by ODU-SP: 1+0, 2+0, 1+1 HSB/ FD & 2+2 with integrated or non-integrated antenna solutions.
