IPLink combines the features of an all-indoor broadcast digital microwave point-to-point radio system with the modern efficiencies of a high-capacity long-distance bi-directional IP microwave radio design. It allows the broadcaster to smoothly migrate from the traditional ASI transport platform to a future IP-centric system architecture.
The system delivers ultra-high linear RF output performance coupled with the reliability that LDPC forward error correction (FEC) affords in controlling errors in data transmissions over long or unreliable microwave paths.
IPLink-SM provides a cost effective alternative “split-mount” (IDU/ODU) solution to that of the “all-indoor” IPLink microwave system and features many of the same broadcast-centric interfaces. It is designed to be used for wireless bi-directional TCP/IP Ethernet applications supporting both ANSI and ETSI duplex channel offset frequency plans.
