Motorola launches licensed microwave PTP ethernet offering

To backhaul users' IP data and support last-mile access

By CBR Staff Writer

The Enterprise Mobility Solutions business unit of Motorola has launched the PTP 800 licensed microwave point-to-point (PTP) ethernet offering operating in the 11, 18, 23 and 26 GHz frequency bands.

The company said that the enterprise and government customers and service providers can deploy the Motorola PTP 800 to backhaul users’ IP data and support a range of applications, including building-to-building connectivity, distance learning, last-mile access or wireless video surveillance.

Motorola claimed that the PTP 800 can help customers address changing market dynamics by delivering a migration path to an IP-based infrastructure or providing a cost-effective way to expand an existing network.

Providing private and public network operators with an entry-point offering, the PTP 800 is also scalable through software license key upgrades, so customers can gradually increase throughput capacity as their bandwidth demands grow, the company added.

According to Motorola, its licensed microwave ethernet offering meets the needs of small and large network operators. The product also comes equipped with asymmetric throughput control, enabling customers to regulate down- and up-link data rates depending on the types of applications and traffic patterns on their networks.

Scott Imhoff, director of point-to-point product management at Motorola Enterprise Mobility Solutions, said: “Network operators want the flexibility to deploy both licensed and unlicensed fixed wireless broadband solutions, and seek technology providers that have the most complete portfolio to meet their current and future needs.

“By adding a licensed microwave Ethernet solution to its portfolio, Motorola has enabled our partners to meet the diversified needs of customers and provide wireless broadband connectivity solutions that are affordable, reliable and secure.
