Approved by the FCC and ETSI, the PTP 820E supports 62.5, 125, 250, and 500 MHz channels and delivers up to 2.5 Gbps Ethernet throughput. An attractive feature of the PTP 820E is the multi-band ability to combine E-band and microwave transmissions in the 11 – 24 GHz bands using a single antenna for high throughput – which results in lower operating costs for the network operator by reducing tower rental and antenna procurement costs.
The PTP 820E supports a variety of configurations:
- SFP+ port for single cable connectivity
- Multi-band (E-band and microwave)
- RFU-E Interoperability
The link also provides high throughput capacity:
- 500 MHz channel – 2.5 Gbps at 64 QAM
- 250 MHz channel – 1.6 Gbps at 256 QAM
- 125 MHz channel – 920 Mbps at 512QAM
- 62.5 MHz channel – 500 Mbps at 1KQAM
"The PTP 820E supports multiband configurations with PTP 820C or PTP 820S licensed microwave solutions and can share a single multiband antenna," said Scott Imhoff, Senior Vice President of Product Management and Marketing, Cambium Networks. "The PTP 820E's multiband configuration enables operators to benefit simultaneously from the high capacity of E-band and the high reliability of microwave, while optimizing capital investment and operating expenses."
The PTP 820E shares the same UI and similar features as the PTP 820 series and is easy to use. Installation is easy with a direct mount connector system, and an optional integrated flat panel antenna. Network operators can rapidly design high reliability links with the free LINKPlanner software, and monitor performance and manage the network with the free cnMaestro™ end-to-end management system.
