Can we use E-Band and Traditional microwave combine like XPIC?
We have advantage like : Deployment speed, Cost, Latency as compared Fiber and very enhance Capacity compared to Traditional Microwave.
These two are different technologies used for wireless communication, particularly in microwave backhaul networks. While they can be used independently, there are also cases where they can be combined to enhance the overall network performance.
Traditional Microwave Technology: Also known as microwave radio, operates in the frequency range of 6 to 42 GHz. It uses microwave frequencies to transmit data wirelessly over long distances, typically between communication towers. They are widely deployed and have been used for many years in various communication applications, including point-to-point links for backhaul connectivity.
E-band Microwave Technology: Operates in the millimeter-wave frequency range, 70/80 GHz band. Much higher data rates and wider bandwidth compared to traditional microwave systems. It is commonly used for short-range, high-capacity links in dense urban areas or as a complement to traditional microwave for specific use cases.
Combination Technology: Combining E-band microwave and traditional microwave technologies can provide several benefits:
Capacity Enhancement: By integrating E-band microwave with traditional microwave links, network capacity can be increased significantly. E-band microwave offers much higher data rates, allowing for the transmission of large amounts of data quickly. It can be used for specific high-capacity links within a network while traditional microwave is used for wider coverage.
Link Reliability: Traditional microwave is known for its robustness and reliability in adverse weather conditions. By combining E-band and traditional microwave, the network can benefit from the reliability of traditional microwave links for long-distance connectivity, while E-band microwave can be used to enhance capacity in shorter-range links.
Cost Optimization: E-band microwave technology can be more cost-effective than traditional microwave for short-range, high-capacity links. By selectively deploying E-band microwave where it is most needed, operators can optimize costs while maintaining reliable connectivity using traditional microwave for longer-range links.
Spectrum Efficiency: By utilizing different frequency bands, combining E-band and traditional microwave can improve spectrum efficiency. E-band microwave uses a higher frequency band, which is less congested compared to traditional microwave bands. This allows for the coexistence of multiple microwave links in the same geographical area, minimizing interference and improving overall network performance.
