Ceragon: Flex Your Backhaul Network with Adaptive Coding and Modulation
Flex Your Backhaul Network with Adaptive Coding & Modulation
Adaptive Coding and Modulation (ACM) was designed to help operators maximize spectrum usage and increase the capacity of their backhaul links over any given channel bandwidth, under any weather condition, for any link budget. This paper provides an introduction to ACM and offers a number of examples that show how the technology simplifies mobile network planning and helps operators achieve better results both in the field as well as on their balance sheets.
Wireless point-to-point (PtP) microwave solutions, used in over 50% of all mobile backhaul deployments worldwide (and nearly 70% outside the U.S.A.), offer operators a simple, cost-efficient path for upgrading and expanding their networks. These solutions support higher data rates than copper E1/DS1 lines, and easily overcome the high cost and limited availability associated with fiber. Yet, wireless backhaul has its constraints. Network planners are often caught between the need to increase the capacity and availability of the network, and the need keep costs in check. In order to meet these needs, Adaptive Coding & Modulation (ACM) - an innovative transmission optimization technology - can be applied, making high-capacity PtP microwave even more attractive.
