EdgeHaul, the world's first self-organizing millimeter wave Gbps transport system featuring adaptive phased array beam form technology.

Solutions 500 400 300 200 100 0 $/Mbps Delivered 2G 3G 4G 5G The world?s first self-organizing millimeter wave Gbps transport system featuring adaptive phased array beam forming technology InterDigital, a leader in state-of-the-art wireless technology for over forty years has developed the latest generation of mesh, self configuring, WiGig based Gbps transport system: ? EdgeHaul? delivers LTE-A and 5G ready Gbps transport using low-cost design concepts (WiGig, global unlicensed spectrum, phased array antenna) ? Multi-hop topology is centrally controlled by intelligent mesh formation and routing algorithms that use the latest generation SDN technology ? Designed for mounting on lampposts or street furniture, the EdgeHaul nodes can be installed in minutes and use automated beam-steering for configuration and optimization long after the truck roll is completed EdgeHaul? Designed for Street Furniture and Lamppost mounting ? Channel Size: 2 GHz ? Duplexing: TDD ? Operating Band: 57 ? 64 GHz ? Throughput: Up to 8 Gbps ? Auto-Aligning Phased Array: ? ?45? azimuth per sector ? ?30? elevation per sector ? Range: 300 meters Driving transport costs below $10/Mbps/month for small cell mobile backhaul, enterprises, and MNOs 60 GHz Wireless Backhaul 60 GHz Wireless Backhaul + Cable Inter-site distance: 300 meters Source: Signals Research Group InterDigital, Inc. 200 Bellevue Parkway Suite 300 Wilmington, DE 19809 +1 (302) 281-3600 Enabling Small Cell Deployments ?
