In addition, its multipoint microwave technology provides total cost of ownership savings of up to 54 percent over other forms of small cell backhaul.

VectaStar Metro, which will be showcased at Mobile World Congress 2013, is compatible with CBNL’s VectaStar Gigabit macro backhaul platform to offer complete network backhaul solution to mobile operators. VectaStar Metro can be easily fixed to walls, lampposts or street signage with minimal set-up requirements.

John Naylon, CTO, Cambridge Broadband Networks, says that VectaStar Metro is a significant development for operators designing and building small cell networks.

The backhaul technology specialist has taken the core of its multipoint microwave backhaul technology and optimised it for street-level deployment. It is ideal for delivering high performance upgrades to existing backhaul infrastructures or as a standalone small cell solution.

In addition, VectaStar Metro is a street level installation capable of operating in a range of frequencies (26, 27, 28GHz).

It delivers high capacity of 300Mb/s into each small cell sector and up to 2.4Gb per hub site.
