Gigabit Wireless Infrastructure

Consumers, corporations and cities are driving increased data demand and existing urban data networks are becoming saturated. Next generation wireless networks operating in millimeter-wave spectrum can add data capacity without the cost and difficultly associated with fiber installation. Lattice’s GigaRay millimeter-wave solutions are ideally-suited for wireless infrastructure applications.

  • Operation in the 60 GHz band, which is license-free in most regions, eliminates the regulatory burden for most link deployments.
  • Use of 2 GHz channels allows high data capacity over several city blocks.
  • The unique propagation characteristics of the 60 GHz bands allow spectrum reuse on a massive scale.
  • Lattice’s mature, high-performance electronic beam-steering significantly reduces the time and cost incurred by network operators for link installation and maintenance.
  • GigaRay modules with regulatory approval take the uncertainty out of integrating 60 GHz links, allowing communications equipment suppliers to deliver products to market more quickly.

Fixed Wireless Broadband Backhaul and Access

  • Increased data demand in fixed networks drives higher network capacity requirements at the edge of the network.
  • Fixed wireless can be used as standalone or as part of a hybrid fiber-wireless network to provision high-speed broadband.
  • Fixed wireless access can include links operating in other bands, such as Wi-Fi and CBRS.

Metro Wi-Fi/LTE Small Cell Wireless Backhaul

  • Increased mobile data demand, especially in urban areas, drives the deployment of 4G LTE small cells and Wi-Fi hotspots.
  • These nodes can be located at the point of demand and connected back to the core network through a dynamic mesh of wireless links.
  • A variety of mobile access services can be supported in licensed, unlicensed or shared spectrum bands.

Campus / Smart City Infrastructure

  • As organizations grow and extend across a multi-building campus, there is a need to interconnect the in-building networks.
  • Cities need to connect monitoring and control services to their internal networks.
  • This can be achieved with wireless backhaul, where links can be established and moved according to changing data traffic patterns.
