All-Outdoor IP/MPLS Multi-Gigabit MW Transmission

OmniBAS™-BX, the new generation of all-outdoor radios of the OmniBAS™ Point-to-Point MW family, addresses the operator need for advanced, cost-effective, multi-Gigabit IP/MPLS transmission solutions. It is ideal for both 4G/5G MW backhaul and for a wide range of enterprise wireless connectivity applications. Featuring a new ultra-slim and low-weight mechanical design, OmniBAS™-BX is available at 13, 18 and 38 GHz and is planned for introduction at 15 and 23 GHz.

OmniBAS™-BX offers market-leading modulations up to 4096-QAM and channels up to 112 MHz, while employing advanced radio and traffic processing functionality to demonstrate exceptional MW radio performance. OmniBAS™-BX is compatible with both OmniBAS™ split-mount and OmniBAS™-OSDR all-outdoor units. A broad range of peripherals and integrated antennas (0.3 / 0.6 / 0.8 / 1.2 / 1.8 m) complements the OmniBAS™-BX offering for complete MW link installations.
