iPASOLINK Series - Overview

Advanced digital microwave communications solutions

iPASOLINK series


NEC is one of the world's leading providers of Microwave radio technology with over 2.3M terminals deployed globally. The iPASOLINK family enables ultra-high capacity wireless transmission in ultra-compact form factor with market leading RF performance.

The expansive feature set and word class reliability of iPASOLINK makes it an ideal choice for carrier and public safety backhaul, as well as utility, energy, government, enterprise and transport networks. The flexible platform allows seamless transition from legacy TDM based services to IP to support next generation LTE and 5G networks.

With our extensive local engineering teams NEC Australia is in a unique position to deliver a full turnkey solution including networks design, installation & commissioning, maintenance and project management service or a complete managed service.

iPASOLINK 100/200/400/1000

Advanced mobile back haul network for 3G, WiMAX or LTE need high-capacity transmission and TDM-IP hybrid network. iPASOLINK series radio equipment are suitable and smart solution for these new requirements. iPASOLINK series not only have TDM traditional radio functions, but also advance IP network function. These various functions are suitable to reduce CAPEX and OPEX, and allow building large networks in just a short period.

  • Ultra high capacity transmission with Adaptive modulation and XPIC technology in compact size IDU.
  • High system gain with advanced error collection and new amplifier technology
  • High level packet networking functionality with IP and PWE.
  • Advanced multi-service QoS and VPN functions
  • Ethernet OAM for fault management and performance monitor.
  • Multiple clock synchronisation source; Ethernet synchronisation, IEEE1588 and TDM

iPASOLINK IX is NEC’s new outdoor unit embodies its worldwide reputation for high performance and reliability whilst at the same time acknowledging recent trends for smaller form factor and zero foot print equipment. Conventional All outdoor radio (AOR) systems compromise some of functionalities in order to achieve the smaller form factor, that results in the need for additional peripheral equipment like L2 switch and PoE in order to maintain necessary functionalities.

The iPasolink IX radio supports 2048QAM modulation and 3x Gigabit Ethernet interfaces, PoE, and over the air interoperable with our split mount radio range.  It comes in single modem or dual modem configurations. Common spares between our full outdoor and split platforms simplifies operation and maintenance. The iPasolink IX is the only full outdoor radio solution on the market which comes in high power options (+34dBm Tx power) and supports 1+1 Space Diversity configurations.
