1. RAy – Microwave Link

Microwave links RAy is designed as high-speed point-to-point wireless bridge for data transmission under the latest requirements of modern wireless transmission equipment. It is a completely new platform with a modern component base.

RAy is designed to transmit ethernet protocol and can be used in backhaul networks as well as last-mile terminal.The design of microwave link RAy reflects effort on meeting the strictest criteria ETSI standards, particularly for durability to interference, high receiver sensitivity and high output power to achieve maximum link distance. Native gigabit Ethernet interface is able to cope with full speed of user data throughput at low latency. High availability of the link (up to 99.999%) is able to be achieved with using hitless Adaptive coding and modulation.

The link properties can be summed as:

  • High data throughput

  • Spectrum effeciency

  • Robustness

  • Security – configuration via https, ssh

  • User friendly interface, advanced diagnostics
