CAMPBELL, Calif. -- Exalt Communications today announced that its ExtremeAir, ExploreAir, and ExtendAir microwave backhaul systems, the Exalt Air Series, now support non-traditional licensed microwave frequencies including 24 GHz DEMS (Digital Electronic Message Service); the LMDS (Local Multipoint Distribution Service) bands of 28, 29, and 31 GHz; and 42 GHz. The expanded band coverage offers mobile operators and other spectrum holders the ability to leverage a much wider array of spectrum for packet-based mobile backhaul in environments where customary bands are becoming saturated and in which the number of cell sites is poised to explode with the widespread deployment of 4G/LTE microcells and picocells.

For organizations with access to spectrum, deployment is a simple as choosing the right Exalt all-outdoor system for the application. For those without current access, spectrum may be licensed from existing license holders. Additionally, as regulatory authorities such as the FCC in the United States and Ofcom in the UK release new bands of spectrum for licensing, Exalt will quickly support these emerging bands to give operators and backhaul service providers even more flexibility in deploying microwave backhaul systems.

"With the impending explosion of small cell deployments, mobile operators need to go beyond traditional licensed frequency bands to meet their backhaul needs," said Amir Zoufonoun, President and CEO, Exalt Communications. "Whatever the nature of the spectrum, Exalt Air Series all‑outdoor microwave backhaul systems provide the flexibility to leverage whatever band is best suited to the backhaul requirements of the application."
