Added new function ‘TX mute’. Updated sections are:

Chapter 9, Technical parameters – values in row ‘Sensitivity, BER 10-6’ in tables 9.1 – 9.4 (to reflect the changes listed below).

Changed all RSS sensitivity values of all RAy3 models for all bands and sub-bands from ‘guaranteed’ to ‘typical’ values (those are better by 1.5 dB for 10-24 GHz bands and by 3 dB for 80 GHz band). Updated sections are:

Revision 1.202023-12-20 
 

Section 1.3.2, “SFP/SFP+ slot (ETH2)” – added support for 2.5 Gb/s SFP moduls
New Section 5.4.2.3, “ Link State Propagation (LSP)” providing description of new function ‘Link State Propagation’
Chapter 9, Technical parameters – tables 9.1 – 9.3, values in rows:

  • ‘Speed (each direction)’ to reflect the link speed changes listed below

  • ‘SFP (user exchangeable)’ to reflect HW and FW development (newly supported also 2500 Mb/s SFP modules for RAy3-10/11/17/18/24)

  • new row ‘Dual Channel’ for RAy3-11/18 to reflect expected future HW and FW development

Slightly improved most of link capacity values in Mb/s for all combinations of available channel and modulation for all bands and sub-bands (i.e. for all RAy3 models for 10-24 GHz bands). The reason is the decision to use link capacities achievable on L1 Ethernet traffic with 1518 Bytes frames measured by RFC2544 test (instead of capacities calculated from modem baud rates till FW 2.0.14.0). Updated sections are:

Revision 1.212024-02-09
