Introducing the new Ignitenet MetroLinq Pro 2.5Gbps
2.5 Gbps capacity with new MetroLinq devices
IgniteNet is introducing the MetroLinq 2.5G series point-to-point devices with an extreme capacity of 2.5 Gbps. Its new generation RF powered by a quad core CPU supports higher modulation allowing delivery of more than two times higher capacity (up to 4.6 Gbps OTA rate) compared to the first generation platform. The official product announcement will be made on the 1st of June, 2017.
MetroLinq 2.5G series devices have different interfaces available to utilize the full capacity of the link including a 2.5Gbps NbaseT copper interface supporting PoE.
The advanced operating systemhas 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 available at: https://cloud.ignitenet.com/welcome/login.
Two model options with different sized integrated antennas are available to support different distances. Even though the average recommended distance 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.
Two different mounting brackets are available to chose from for links in different distances and weather conditions.
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.
