MetroLinq™ 2.5G 60 Beamforming Sector
The MetroLinq 2.5G 60 Beamforming Sector is a powerful 60 GHz MultiPoint base-station packed with the latest technologies from IgniteNet. This new radio can achieve 2.5 Gbps capacity allowing the construction of multi-gigabit, future-proof hybrid fibre wireless networks quickly and cost-effectively. Using the latest phased array beamforming antenna design allows 120º area coverage with an improved performance when focusing the signal to a specific client when data is transmitted and received.
120 degrees beamforming antenna
The new beamforming sector antenna has a 120 degree area coverage, but during the communication with each client device 16 narrow beam steps of 10 degrees are used, which improves noise immunity and assures security of your links.
MetroLinq 2.5G series devices have interfaces allowing to utilize the full capacity of the link including a 2.5Gbps NbaseT copper interface supporting PoE and SFP port.
The advanced operating system has a professional feature-set required to do point-to-point communication, which includes 128 bit AES encryption for security, Jumbo frame support, 5 GHz failover radio and many more. Each link can be configured individually and also using our cloud based controller available at: https://cloud.ignitenet.com/welcome/login.
Multiple client options
Two client options with different sized integrated antennas are available to support different distances. Average distance recommendation for 19 cm antenna model is up to 400 m (0.25 mi) and for 35 cm antenna model it is 700 m (0.43 mi). Note: the above distances may vary due to rain rate differences in your region.
Accessories simplifying setup
The innovative Linq Assist application and alignment scope are very handy when setting up the link. An optional, external USB dongle with Bluetooth support allows connecting to the device directly with your mobile device, which simplifies the on-site fine tuning.
Mounting bracket options
Two different mounting brackets are available to choose from for links in different distances and weather conditions.
