BridgeWave Communications, Inc. Key Developments

BridgeWave Communications Introduced Flex4G-UHA

BridgeWave Communications introduced Flex4G-UHA, the newest member of its Flex4G family of high-capacity millimeter wave wireless solutions. The new Flex4G-UHA is currently undergoing customer trials with several leading mobile carriers. As mobile data consumption increases exponentially, operators are looking for backhaul solutions that provide the lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) with the flexibility to easily scale to meet tomorrow's bandwidth demands. BridgeWave's innovative Flex4G-UHA has been designed to alleviate the strain on backhaul connections by combining advanced radio and modem capabilities with carrier-grade Ethernet features. BridgeWave's highly-integrated Silicon Germanium (SiGe) chipset reduces complexity and power consumption while improving reliability. Carrier Ethernet services are provided through the use of an integrated low-latency switch supporting jumbo frames while including Quality of Service (QoS), VLAN support, Provider Bridge (Q-in-Q) along with Ethernet OAM management. Flex4G-UHA provides comprehensive timing support required for 4G/LTE deployments, including Synchronous Ethernet and IEEE1588.v2 with hardware-based time-stamping for one-step or two-step clocks. With low power consumption and PoE++ capability, Flex4G-UHA is a truly environmentally friendly, zero-footprint all-outdoor solution.

BridgeWave Communications, Inc. Launches Flex4G

BridgeWave Communications, Inc. announced the launch of Flex4G, its newest family of high-capacity, multi-gigabit wireless solutions for backhaul of next-generation networks. Flex4G builds on BridgeWave's extensive experience with millimeter wave solutions by providing a highly integrated platform with advanced features that allow operators to minimize their total cost of ownership. Flex4G's exclusive Silicon Germanium RF technology enables high power operation, while the extraordinary level of integration yields exceptional reliability. BridgeWave's advanced digital signal processing technology used in Flex4G provide line-rate, full-duplex 1Gbps in an ETSI-standard, single 250 MHz channel using only 32QAM modulation, with improved link budgets compared to other solutions using 64QAM. Through its built-in low-latency switch, Flex4G enables Carrier-Ethernet functionality with flexible Quality of Service, VLAN awareness, Provider Bridging, Congestion Management and Ring Protection. Carrier-Ethernet capabilities are further enhanced by comprehensive Ethernet OAM management and advanced timing through support of SyncE and 1588v2.

BridgeWave Communications, Inc. Expands Partnerships in Middle East with Alltel Advance Solutions, Atlas Telecommunications and Comtinu

BridgeWave Communications, Inc. announced that because of the increased need for high-capacity and gigabit wireless solutions required by carriers, service providers, government and private network users, the company has further expanded its presence with new channel partners in the Middle East region. BridgeWave announced the addition of Alltel Advance Solutions, Atlas Telecommunications and Comtinu as reseller partners in the Middle East North Africa region. Based in Dubai, UAE, these companies were chosen as strategic partners due to their broad experience in selling, supporting and servicing wireless solutions, as well as their ability to quickly deliver BridgeWave's solutions to end users. BridgeWave's high capacity gigabit wireless solutions are deployed in Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and the United Arab Emirates, servicing the needs of service providers, mobile operators, government and enterprise users for the last seven years. As mobile networks continue to evolve from legacy 3G to next-generation 4G/LTE standards, the need for cost-effective, high-capacity backhaul solutions are paramount to the operators' successful 4G implementation. Carriers and service providers such as Saudi Telecom (STC) and Kulacom are utilizing BridgeWave's gigabit wireless solutions to provide high-capacity backhaul to extend their mobile networks as well as quickly commission fiber extensions for business services. Bandwidth-intensive applications such as video surveillance, medical imaging, financial transactions, and cloud computing require higher WAN/LAN backbone capacities. Government, enterprise and private networks users are discovering the benefits of implementing gigabit wireless solutions as opposed to trenching or leasing fiber. Using BridgeWave's wireless solutions, enterprise and government users such as The National Bank of Abu Dhabi and Abu Dhabi Customs, have achieved fiber-like performance in terms of throughput and latency, but without the expense of implementing fiber.
