MWC 2022: Intracom Telecom to demo new mmWave systems

Intracom Telecom has introduced WiBAS G5 dual-BS and the WiBAS G5 smart-BS hub radios for ultra broadband service.
Intracom TelecomIntracom Telecom will demonstrate the new mmWave systems at the MWC Barcelona, on 28 February -03 March 2022, at the company’s stand, 7B44 in hall 7.

Intracom Telecom developed new techniques to enhance the density of subscribers and the speed of connection, for its WiBAS mmWave FWA portfolio. The technological innovations are being introduced on the 28GHz FDD hub radio WIBAS G5 dual-BS and on the 24/26/27/28GHz TDD hub radio WIBAS G5 smart-BS.

The subscriber density reaches 240 per hub and the available capacity goes up to 3.2Gbps using wide channels of 100MHz and 112MHz, by activating 2 or 4 data streams on each hub radio. The advanced modem technology of WiBAS system enables the operation of the system at a maximum 1024 modulation scheme, therefore terminals can achieve total throughput of 1Gbps.

The signature feature of the WiBAS portfolio has always been the extended range, and this is reconfirmed for the WIBAS G5 dual-BS as well as for the WIBAS G5 smart-BS, and ranges up to 11km can be considered along with all the other parameters which are accounted for when designing and deploying for radio service coverage.

The WiBAS G5 dual-BS and WIBAS G5 smart-BS are fully compatible with operating networks and their software-defined architecture enable future-proof deployments and feature enhancements through software licensing.

Service Providers can instantly increase the total network capacity of an existing WiBAS deployment by operating the new hubs alongside the WiBAS OSDR and WiBAS G5 evo-BS hubs. The WIBAS G5 smart-BS operates at 5G mmWave frequencies alongside 5G NR networks.

The WiBAS G5 dual-BS and WIBAS G5 smart-BS, just like any product of the company’s FWA ecosystem, are SDR (Software Defined Radios) having the capability to be upgraded with software for functionalities in the future.

“The demand for microwave transmission equipment is expected to be largely driven by applications such as FWA because fiber deployment is not economical everywhere. MmWave solutions can deliver the high capacity as well as meet the longer distance requirements of rural and suburban locations,” Jimmy Yu, VP of the Microwave Transmission and Mobile Backhaul Transport market research in Dell’Oro Group, said.

“This is a milestone for Intracom Telecom’s wireless solutions portfolio reaffirming company’s goal to lead in the FWA domain by providing first the most advanced mmWave FWA technology available in the market,” Dimitris Pantelopoulos, Intracom Telecom R&D Director, said.
