Fastback Networks and TESSCO Team for Distribution of Wireless Backhaul Solutions in North America

Fastback Networks has teamed with TESSCO Technologies Incorporated to provide Fastback Networks’ high-capacity wireless backhaul solution to meet the growing demand for high-performance LTE-capable backhaul across public and private networks. TESSCO will serve as distributor of the Fastback Networks Intelligent Backhaul Radio (IBR) solution in North America focused on delivering LTE backhaul solutions to regional service providers, and high-capacity connectivity solutions to the enterprise sector and vertical markets. Fastback Networks’ Intelligent Backhaul Radio line is designed for the challenges of LTE networks. Supporting line-of-sight, near line-of-sight, and non-line-of-sight applications, the IBR enables the use of wireless backhaul in locations previously thought untenable without a fiber connection. Market adoption of the Fastback Networks solution has progressed on a fast-paced trajectory.

Fastback Networks Elevates LTE Backhaul Performance with 800 Mbps Wireless Transport Solution

Fastback Networks announced higher speed backhaul capability, raising the performance bar for LTE backhaul devices. Fastback's Intelligent Backhaul Radio, the only wireless backhaul solution meeting all the requirements of LTE cellular, now delivers throughput of over 800 Mbps while sustaining its low latency across all radio conditions from Line of Sight to the most challenging Non Line of Sight scenarios. The IBR is the only wireless backhaul solution that meets all the stringent eNodeB LTE basestation requirements, while enabling acceleration of LTE deployments in locations where fiber is too expensive or too slow to deploy. The IBR's latest speed of over 800 Mbps at up to 2 km range builds on its existing best in class capabilities. These include the industry's lowest latency (0.5 ms), and reliable Any Line of Sight (AnyLOS(TM)) operation providing simultaneous support of NLOS, nLOS and LOS conditions in a single device. Applications include Macrocell LTE upgrade (from 3G), Macrocell LTE fill-in, and indoor or outdoor LTE and LTE-A small cell backhaul that requires reliable operations in NLOS conditions combined with high speeds and low latency. The IBR is purpose-built to meet all the requirements of LTE networks, where high performance backhaul to millions of upgraded cell sites, and tens of millions of new sites, is critical to success. The unprecedented performance features of the IBR are geared to enabling these increasingly dense user environments. Fastback's patented interference mitigation technology, Extreme Interference Protection (XIP(TM)) is key to sustained performance in the ever increasingly noisy radio environments caused by Wi-Fi, bluetooth, cordless phones, and the emerging Internet of Things. Equally critical is the IBR's ability to deliver the high throughput and lowest latency across Any Line of Sight, from LOS to complete NLOS. This enables mobile service infrastructure to be placed where needed for maximum spectral efficiency and customer demand - on towers or poles, or inside or outside of structures - with a reliable backhaul link to locations that have been previously unreachable. A typical IBR installation site contains far fewer managed elements, a result of the unique integration of radio and switch hardware and software within the IBR system. Incorporating the functions of a carrier class, high performance radio, Carrier Ethernet switch, 1588v2 timing, UNI-Demarc, NID and SLA-OAM, CFM and PM capabilities, the IBR requires dramatically less space, power and minimized points of failure. Featuring power over Ethernet, auto alignment and rapid synchronization, the IBR can be mounted, configured and in-service anywhere by non-skilled labor in less than 15 minutes. The IBR's patented technology eliminates the need for recurring alignment. The Fastback IBR configurable to over 800 Mbps will be generally available in fourth quarter of 2014.
