Press Release Summary:
Eclipse(TM) Layer 2 Gigabit Ethernet wireless transmission platform minimizes radio equipment and frequency spectrum requirements. Using Layer 2 features such as link aggregation and Resilient Wireless Packet Ring(TM) protocol, it supports full wire-speed, native Gigabit Ethernet link. Product includes radio access card and its associated software, extending Eclipse(TM) cross-polar interference cancellation (XPIC) support up to RF channel bandwidths of 50, 55, or 56 MHz.
Original Press Release:
Harris Stratex Networks Enhances Its Eclipse Layer 2 Carrier Wireless Ethernet Transport Solution
Platform supports throughputs up to 1.2 Gbps with fewer equipment and frequency requirements
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., May 23 -- Harris Stratex Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ:HSTX), the leading independent supplier of turnkey wireless network solutions, announced an upgrade to the Eclipse(TM) Layer 2 Gigabit Ethernet wireless transmission platform. The upgrade enables link throughput speeds up to 1.2 Gbps, while minimizing radio equipment and frequency spectrum requirements. With this new capability, Eclipse(TM) becomes the first and only product on the market to support a full wire-speed, native Gigabit Ethernet link using intelligent Layer 2 features, such as link aggregation and the patent-pending Resilient Wireless Packet Ring(TM)(RWPR) protocol.
The release includes a new radio access card (RAC) and its associated software, extending the Eclipse(TM) cross-polar interference cancellation (XPIC) support up to RF channel bandwidths of 50, 55 or 56 MHz. XPIC now supports up to 4x310 Mbps transport channels in just two RF channels using both antenna polarizations. The unique Eclipse(TM) Layer 2 Link Aggregation feature then combines and balances traffic between the four transport channels to create a single Gigabit Ethernet wireless link, while providing carrier-class reliability by decreasing the switching time and minimizing packet loss.
"This new release extends Eclipse(TM) support for native Layer 2 transport of carrier-grade Ethernet data," said John Koenig, vice president of product line management at Harris Stratex Networks. "It supports higher throughputs more efficiently with additional carrier-class functionality incorporated within the radio at no extra cost. Eclipse(TM) now eliminates the expense of external switches and enables a smooth, cost-efficient evolution to packet- based network architectures."
Harris Stratex Networks is displaying its Eclipse(TM) Layer 2 Gigabit wireless transport solution at Interop at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada USA, Booth #2236, on May 22-24, 2007.
