BridgeWave Unveils 1-Gigabit, Ultra-Low Cost, Ultra-High System Gain 80GHz Radio System for Internet Service Providers
Small, lightweight Flex4G-1000 offers longest range, multiple antenna options for quick and easy deployment, faster ROI
San Diego, CA – March 21, 2017 - BridgeWave Communications, a market leader and pioneer in wireless backhaul systems, today unveiled the BridgeWave Flex4G-1000 (FL4G-1000), an ultra-low cost 70/80GHz millimeter wave system delivering 1Gbps full-duplex data throughput per radio and the highest system gain of any 80GHz radio on the market. The FL4G-1000, available in both ANSI and ETSI versions, is ideal for wireless internet service providers (ISPs) and others seeking gigabit connectivity with carrier-class features and ease of installation at industry-leading price points.
The FL4G-1000 is lightweight and ultra-compact to minimize installation and connectivity costs, and features carrier-grade Ethernet switch functionality, hitless adaptive rate modulation, and ultra-low power consumption with support for both POE and direct DC power feed. FL4G-1000 (ANSI/ETSI) offers direct mount antenna options from 12" (30cm) to 36" (90cm) for extreme system ranges and availabilities. FL4G-1000, ETSI only, is also available with an integrated low profile 8" (20cm) antenna to further simplify installation and provide an ultra-low visibility solution for metro applications. The FL4G-1000 provides ISPs with all the functionality they need for quick deployment and the opportunity to increase subscriber revenue.
