RICHARDSON, Texas -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Fujitsu, a leading provider of business, information technology, and communications solutions, today announced the BroadOne™ GX4000 E-Band Solution for the North American market. Operating in the 70/80 GHz or E-band, which allows access to a wider radio frequency spectrum, the BroadOne GX4000 Series is the only product of its kind using patented Impulse Radio Technology to achieve 3 Gbps transmission rates, and ultra-low latency.* With its compact form factor and easy installation, the GX4000 is ideally suited for applications requiring ultra-high capacity, short spans, where fiber is not available.
Radio access networks are quickly evolving toward LTE-Advanced, requiring much higher capacity in the backhaul and fronthaul networks. The GX4000 offers an ideal way to deliver multi-Gigabit transport capacity in current and future networks, and can be used in the following modes:
“Fujitsu’s GX4000 E-band radio is one of the first platforms in the industry to provide native CPRI interfaces, which will enable operators to support BBU pooling without the need to deploy fiber in every sector, thereby reducing costs and improving time to market,” said Emmy Johnson, Founder and Principal Analyst, Sky Light Research.
“As one of the world’s leading microwave providers, Fujitsu is pleased to introduce our patented Impulse Radio Technology to the North American market,” said Tetsuya Takase, Head of the Wireless Business Unit. “This breakthrough technology provides real advantages over traditional carrier-based transmission, making the BroadOne GX4000 platform a perfect fit for delivering ultra-high capacity communications in a variety of settings, including hospitals, campuses, and residential areas, ultimately helping to improve the customer experience.”
The BroadOne GX4000 is supported and managed by the NETSMART® 1500 Management System. Its intuitive Graphical User Interface (GUI) makes provisioning, maintenance and troubleshooting a simple, efficient process. The NETSMART 1500 Management System empowers service providers to reduce operating expenses by reducing the time and complexity associated with day-to-day operational and maintenance tasks.
*3Gbps uncompressed. Latency is less than 20 microseconds per 1 link in CPRI mode
