LigoWave unleashes its highest-end, license-free PTP device with the release of the LigoPTP UNITY series product line. Making use of groundbreaking 2x2 MiMo technology, the LigoPTP 5-23/5-N UNITY delivers real aggregate throughput capability of up to 220 Mbps (110 Mbps full-duplex) combined with high packets-per-second performance (140000) and at the same time a link bonding option integrated on the device to double the capacity for up to 400+ Mbps (200 Mbps Full-duplex). Link bonding is done using a powerful CPU and uses fair queuing mechanism. The throughput is not only doubled, but it also ensures radio link redundancy at the same time and works efficiently when traffic source is coming from a single MAC address.
Additionally, the new product is compatible with previous LigoPTP 5-23 MiMo, LigoPTP 5-N MiMo, LigoPTP 5-23 PRO? and LigoPTP 5-N PRO models that can be used concurrently? to double the throughput over the same link. This product enables carrier-class point-to-point capability, ideal for dedicated access or backhaul applications (including VOIP or other small packet applications). The LigoPTP UNITY product family couples flexible channel width capability (20 or 40 MHz) and industry-leading proprietary software mechanisms to set the utmost standard in spectral efficiency.
The LigoPTP 5-23/5-N UNITY products feature either an integrated dual-polarized antenna or two N-type connectors. They are housed in rugged, cast aluminum enclosures. Combining digital signal processing, dual-polarized antennas and proprietary W-Jet 2 MiMo protocol these bridges have a high spectral efficiency of 7.5bit/Hz.
The LigoPTP 5-23/5-N UNITY showcase an array of advanced software mechanisms that provide optimal point-to- point connectivity for high-throughput, long distance? links. LigoWave's proprietary PTP mechanisms utilize techniques such as Dynamic Time Division Duplexing (TDD) to dynamically allocate bandwidth in the direction needed, thus increasing link efficiency and greatly decreasing the impact that distance has on throughput of the link.
The LigoWave point-to-point products also features selective repeat ARQ technology, an enhanced error-correction software mechanism that optimises data traffic to provide very high throughput over high-bandwidth, long-range links even in the presence of interference.
LigoPTP UNITY devices support L2(802.1p) and L3 (DSCP) QoS. In layer 2 QoS data is prioritized according to VLANs while in layer 3 according to IP addresses. Both types of? QoS can run together or independently and traffic can be mapped into 4 different queues for each type applying? strict or WRR policies. Having QoS on your link allows you to prioritize mission critical data and real time data that requires more capacity and higher PPS rate. Max capacity for each of the queues is calculated according to the wireless link, dynamically.
Example: The picture above shows that Internet traffic receives lowest priority, data and video receive middle priority and voice traffic receives highest priority.
The new UNITY series products have an extremely powerful integrated 28 dBm (+/-2 dBm) radio, which allows building solid long-distance links even with an integrated antenna. The output power on highest modulation (MCS 15) is 23 dBm (+/- 2 dBm), which is hard to find elsewhere in the market today.
Gigabit Ethernet port and 802.3 af standard support makes the UNITY series product line even more flexible. Superior SURGE and ESD protection makes this product ideal for mission critical and harsh-weather condition installations. SURGE and ESD protection meets IEC61000-4-2 (ESD) and IEC 61000- 4-5 (SURGE) standards.
The LigoPTP 5-23/5-N UNITY is also compatible with LigoWave's online link calculator and WNMS, a centralized configuration, firmware, and statistics server offered by LigoWave for remote diagnostic and configuration.
