SDR Series™ FCC Licensed Radios

Something New?

SDR Series™ radios are unique, in that they are specifically designed for "Consecutive Point" (CP) architecture. This is also known as ring or loop redundancy. The CP concept allows system configurations that are protected from signal fades, as well as individual equipment failure, with little additional equipment costs. In both Ethernet and T1/E1 implementations, traffic can be quickly rerouted for almost immediate restoration of service. Other network configurations such as star, chain or mesh can also be supported using SDR Series™ radios. The wide band design of SDR Series™ radios satisfies an extensive array of system requirements, and with CP architecture system spares inventory can be significantly reduced. The use of "Targeted Optioning" makes gives the SDR Series™ radios greater flexibility, while reducing manufacturing costs. This results in savings to you.

Configurable System Capacity

Whenever required, you can expand capacity upon demand, subject to your FCC license. Individual radios can be easily reconfigured in the field for different bandwidth and/or modulation from 26 Mbps to 311 Mbps, full duplex. Using software definitions, the SDR Series™ radios can program modulation from QPSK to 128-QAM on standard FCC channel bandwidths of 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, and 56 MHz. No more stranded investment in radios with limited flexibility and capacity. We use the same IDU in all radio bands. Also, an IDU frame will support two radios, without regard of payload, band, modulation, or bandwidth, within 1 RU.

Configurations are available up to 1000 Mbps full-duplex throughput, with built-in fault tolerance for critical applications. AES Encryption is available as an option.

Are you ready for Loop Redundancy? The vast majority of systems in service today do not enjoy the cost and performance benefits of loop redundancy. Most topologies are star or chain, with the only option for redundancy being a second hot-standby radio, thereby more than doubling the system cost. With new networks being designed to haul Ethernet, a variety of topologies can now be used, including integration with fiber. Many system operators are redesigning their systems to accommodate ever-increasing Ethernet traffic requirements. SDR Series™ radios can become the core of your new network, and older radios with less capacity can be redeployed to less demanding roles.

Ethernet, and a host of other interfaces. We designed the SDR Series™ radios for a wide variety of interfaces. We always provide Ethernet in either 100BaseT or GigE with optional 1000BaseSX fiber. In addition, we also provide at least two T1/E1 circuits. The T1/E1 circuits can be expanded in the frame up to 32 circuits. We also support up to two STM-1 electrical or OC-3 optical interfaces as options. The GigE interface also contains a single SFP Module option slot, to accommodate SX, LX, or copper terminations. Depending upon payload selected, latency can be as low as 0.19 ms.

Extended Warranty Services The standard limited warranty is two years (FIVE YEARS ON NEPTUNE) from the factory ship date on all of our radios. Extended warranty service is available at a very reasonable monthly charge. Extended warranty includes priority overnight service within the continental USA.


State-of- the-art management with SNMP Use your existing Network Management software such as HP Openview, SNMPc, or many others. This allows users to perform RF and SDH performance monitoring, alarm reports, element reconfiguration, remote diagnostics and more.

Split-mount or all-indoor installation. Our radios can split-mount for the highest performance or mount entirely indoor, with adapters available for wall or panel mounting.

Configurable modulation & bandwidth Our new SDR Series™ radios are software configurable for QPSK, 16QAM, 32QAM, 64QAM, or 128QAM modulation, and bandwidths of 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, or 56 MHz. One radio will now meet most requirements, thereby reducing spares required.
