The MetroLinq 2.5G 60 Beamforming Sector is a powerful 60 GHz MultiPoint base-station packed with the latest technologies from IgniteNet. This new radio can achieve 2.5 Gbps capacity allowing the construction of multi-gigabit, future-proof hybrid fibre wireless networks quickly and cost-effectively. Using the latest phased array beamforming antenna design allows 120º area coverage with an improved performance when focusing the signal to a specific client when data is transmitted and received.How To Buy
The new beamforming sector antenna has a 120 degree area coverage, but during the communication with each client device 16 narrow beam steps of 10 degrees are used, which improves noise immunity and assures security of your links.
MetroLinq 2.5G series devices have interfaces allowing to utilize the full capacity of the link including a 2.5Gbps
NbaseT copper interface supporting PoE and SFP port.
Two model options with different sized integrated antennas are available tosupport different distances. Even though the average recommendeddistance for the 35 cm antenna is 1.6 km (1 mi) there are customers running their links at 70-80% of the maximum capacity at 2.5 km (1.6 mi), which is possibly a record distance in the 60GHz unlicensed band.
The advanced operating system has a professional feature-set required to do point-to-point communication, which includes 128 bit AES encryption for security, Jumbo frame support, 5 GHz failover radio and many more. Each link can be configured individually and also using our cloud based controller.
Two different mounting brackets are available to choose from for links in different distances and weather conditions.
Utilizing leading-edge technology, IgniteNet’s MetroLinq™ Alignment Scope delivers unprecedented performance and ensures precise antenna positioning in the field, bringing accuracy during deployments, installations, and ongoing operations. Initial antenna position is critical during Metrolinq™ antenna upgrades or new deployments for post installation network performance. The Metrolinq™ Alignment Scope saves time and money by eliminating costly site re-visits and re-climbs.
The innovative Linq Assist application and alignment scope are very handy when setting up the link. An optional, external USB dongle with Bluetooth support allows connecting to the device directly with your mobile device, which simplifies the on-site fine tuning.
