Ericsson Product Families
Highest system gain - Customers can use our licensed microwave and E-band technology to achieve high-capacity. high-availability, and longer reach and enable higher throughput in a smaller footprint.
Maximum flexibility - We offer indoor, ootdoor, and split deployment options, covering the full range of site types, all with common management for easy OA&M.
Future-proof - By supporting all (6-80 GHz) frequendes, microwave solutions are highly configurable for whatever 5G needs arise. Beyond 2020, W- and D-Band radios will deliver 100 Gbps link capacities.
Optimized for 5G - Our routers are optimized for 10/25 Gbps/100 Gbps connectivity and offer high-throughput low-latency, and best-in-class buffering with hardware accelerated IPSec and high-accuracy internal clocks for industry-leading 5G performance.
Protect 80-99% of cell site capacity in case of a GPS failure - Our routers provide the integrated time/phase synchronization backup and distribution demanded by 5G RAN.
Purpose-built for Ericsson Radio System - Our routers come in indoor and outdoor variants using Ericsson Radio System building practices for flexibility, simplified rollout, and minimized maintenance costs due to fanless and filterless design.
Ericsson Featured Products
MINI-LINK 6366 is an all-outdoor microwave solution used with MINI-LINK 6363 radios. MINI-LINK 6366 provides an outdoor enclosed baseband with mounting flexibility: directly to the antenna or separately via pole or rail mount. Build 1+0, 1+1 and 2+0 configurations with the same building blocks for 6 to 80 GHz or combine two different frequency bands for a Multi-Band Booster configuration.
A network node for the future requires high node capacity which means high capacity for switch, radio links and interfaces. MINI-LINK 6366 is a packet only all-outdoor node with a switch capacity of 9.5 Gbps with multiple 1/2.5 Gbps interfaces. The node supports radio link up to 2.5Gbps with high modulation of 4096 QAM, wide channels up to 112/125 MHz supporting L3 VPN’s, which makes it well positioned on the road to 5G.
MINI-LINK 6352 is an all outdoor microwave node, and part of the successful MINI-LINK portfolio.
