Aviat Networks Inc.
This is an outdoor radio unit for ultra-high capacity microwave trunking. The ODU 600T, together with the new Outdoor Branching Unit (OBU), allows for up to eight parallel radio channels on a single microwave antenna, creating aggregate link capacities in excess of 3.5Gbit/s. According to the company, the combined system of ODU 600T and OBU is significantly smaller and lighter than competing solutions, enabling it to be lifted and installed at high tower elevations more easily, while also decreasing tower space and loading requirements. The ODU 600T is available in the 6, 7, 8 and 11GHz frequency bands and is fully compatible with the Eclipse Packet Node platform, which supports advanced carrier Ethernet functionality, including multichannel radio-link bonding and ITU-T G.8032 Ethernet Ring Protection (ERP).

Blade RRU Solution
This offers a blade-server-like design for seamless module assembly for building mobile-broadband cell sites. The modules can be assembled into flexible combinations of different bands, modes and sectors. This, according to the company, saves site space and reduces site rental costs to meet operator demands for network capacity for the different stages of a network's development. Each Blade RRU module is 12L / 14kg and can be installed in minutes. Each module can transmit up to 2 x 60W, and complies with 3GPP MSR standards, and supports mode migration via software configurations and also optimizing configurations for coverage, capacity, multiple network standards, and frequency resources.
This addition of LTE to the E-RAN system is presented as forming the first true multimode access system with 3G, LTE/4G and dual-band Wi-Fi for reliable mobile services indoors for enterprise customers of any size. The E-RAN system consists of a Services Node (SCSN) that can control more than 100 self-organizing and multi-access 3G, Wi-Fi and LTE/4G small cells that can be installed in days by using an enterprise-Ethernet LAN. One E-RAN delivers high capacity and coverage to more than 10,000 connected smartphones and tablets, with only one connection to the mobile operatorâ€™s core network. The company says that the scalable system architecture simplifies deployment and overall network configuration for mobile operators as they address demand for reliable mobile services from enterprise and large-venue customers. The portfolio of highly integrated Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) capable enterprise small cells with transmit power options of 100 - 250mW now comprises: (a) SCRN-200 -- 16/32 channels 3G Small Cell; (b) SCRN-300 -- 16/32 3G channels and dual-radio Wi-Fi Small Cell; (c) SCRN-210 -- 64 4G/LTE channels with 2x2 MIMO Small Cell.
Telco Systems (BATM)
The next generation mobile-backhaul carrier-Ethernet/MPLS demarcation device offers, according to the company, one of the densest demarcation devices on the market, incorporating high capacity in a compact size (1RU by half-shelf width), with nonblocking architecture 12 x 1G ports and 8 x E1/T1 Circuit Emulation Services (CES) ports for TDM over Ethernet at cell sites with legacy mobile technology. It also supports extending the core IP/MPLS to the cell site to utilize MPLS as a transport technology and enables providers to benefit from scalability, resiliency, traffic engineering and easier third party integration and interoperability. The T-Marc 3312SC has the company's BiNOX operating system and supports Hierarchal QoS (HQoS), a large suite of resiliency protocols and high service scalability.
Energy Saving Solution
Presented as technologies to reduce power consumption in LTE base stations, it includes the industry's first integrated system for automatic/dynamic PA bias voltage control and intelligent OFDM signaling shutdown without affecting performance, the company says. According to the company, test results, show that the solution can generate energy savings of as much as 32 percent on a single site. Annual reduction of as much as 5,200kwh can be achieved on a typical 1,500W base station. For a network comprising 1,000 base stations, the annual reduction would amount to 5.2 million kwh, representing 4500t of carbon-dioxide emission. When combined with the deployment of renewable energy sources such as solar energy, wind energy or bio-energy, energy savings of more than 50 percent for the entire network can be achieved.
