IgniteNet’s 60GHz MetroLinq Platform Solves Severe 5GHz Interference Issues in Mexico
IgniteNet and their Authorized Distributor, Syscom, along with Mexican service provider Ar@net are working together to replace interference riddled 5 GHz frequency connections with the new MetroLinq 2.5G series devices. Ar@net, a WISP based in Lazaro Cárdenas Michoacán area in Mexico, is suffering from an increasingly congested 5GHz spectrum resulting in low performance on their backhaul and last-mile connectivity links. Ar@net delivers data and VoIP connectivity to unconnected areas using wireless devices operating in unlicensed ISM bands. Until recently, this was limited primarily to 5GHz, however 60GHz recently was approved for unlicensed use by Mexican regulators opening up a huge amount of new spectrum.
Introducing the new MetroLinq 5 LW
IgniteNet is pleased to introduce the new MetroLinq 5 LW. The MetroLinq 5 LW is a dual-band concurrent, dual-radio wireless bridge ideal for PTP and PTMP applications. When used in conjuncton with a MetroLinq 60GHz base station, the MetroLinq 5 LW is perfect for connecting clients on fixed 5GHz service – especially where there is nLOS or longer distance connections needed. Other applications include short to mid-range (up to 10 km/6.2mi) wireless bridging with a 2.4 GHz radio dedicated to local Wi-Fi access perfect for hotspot applications, management, and advertising – all from the same device.
