Universal Aggregation Platform
These changes lead to new technologies in the microwave industry:
- Complex modulation formats to improve capacity
- Support larger bandwidth channels
- Implementation of multi carrier /multiband solution
- Adoption of new spectrum (millimetre wave)
- Integration of L3 networking
- New management protocols and software platforms fitting SDN architectures
With the adoption of LTE-A, mobile and fix convergence and preparation for 5G launch, the transport network infrastructure and service management has increased in complexity. Hidden needs have become apparent as operator started optimizing the network performances for a leaner transport network.
AGS20 is the unique universal aggregation platform to address all these new application segments with a coherent solution.
AGS20 is a Universal Aggregation Platform addressing the need for carrier-class multi-technology traffic aggregation specifically designed for mobile backhauling needs.
