- Longest Range: Up to 200km or more
- Highest Availability: Up to 99.9999% (6-nines) or higher
A huge technological advance in Wireless Transmission
CableFree UNITY is a major advance over previous generations of wireless links and combines the latest in wireless technologies into a single platform, which can be extended in a flexible manner, to add capacity and capabilities when and as needed:
Component-based Wireless Solution: Ultimate in Flexibility
A CableFree UNITY solution comprises these “building blocks” as a flexible component-based solution integrated into a single networking infrastructure. By adding on these elements as building blocks, a bespoke solution is provided for each customer network. Unity advantages include:
- Longer Range in all weather zones
- Higher Capacity: Up to 40Gbps today
- Higher Availability: Up to 99.9999% or higher – “better than fibre”
- No single-point-of-failure
- “Pay as you grow” scalability & future proof upgrades
Extend Capacity, Range and Availability in all weather conditions
A UNITY solution achieves weather independence by using complementary technologies over the transmission path, where effects such as tropical rain, snow, fog and dust storms are overcome by ensuring that sufficient active live paths are available. Current existing links using a single traditional wireless technology have inherent weaknesses based on the electromagnetic spectrum wavelength that it uses – for example light-based FSO is negatively impacted by fog, while radio-based Millimeter Wave frequencies are susceptible to rain fade. Combining diverse, complementary technologies allows CableFree to overcome this using Wide Wavelength Diversity (WWD) and ensure that the combined link achieves uptime of 100% or as close as physically possible.
UNITY: Increased Capacity
The combined link technologies gives increased capacity. For example, adding 1Gbps MMW and 1Gbps FSO gives 2Gbps. Each path may have 99.99% uptime – which means 2Gbps during 99.99% of the time, dropping to 1Gbps for the few minutes per year.
In practice, 2x or 3x capacity increase can be achieved using UNITY
UNITY: Extends Range
Using diverse wireless media with complimentary fade mechanisms: for example MMW fades in rain but not fog, FSO fades in fog but not rain. The two never occur together. Radio links are unaffected by rain. A composite UNITY link can offer the longest range compared to any one technology alone.
In practice, 2x or 3x range extension can be achieved using UNITY
UNITY: Increased Availability
Using diverse media ensures highest possible availability. No one failure mechanism exists with UNITY: Each path may have for example 99.99% uptime – but with complimentary fade mechanisms, the composite link will attain far higher availability as one link path will always be “up” even if the other experiences a few seconds or minutes outage.
In practice, 99.999%, 99.9999% or higher can easily be achieved using UNITY
UNITY: Link Intelligence
Software Defined Networking (SDN) in CableFree UNITY is used to ensure that the user network traffic is prioritised over the available airside bandwidth in a highly customisable, intelligent manner and ensures simplicity, flexibility, transparency and great control of user traffic and experience.
Easy to upgrade and maintain
CableFree UNITY offers huge advantage over attempts by vendors to make “one box” solutions: if any element of the solution requires replacement, upgrade, then it can be exchanged or added without affecting customer network service over the existing UNITY elements.
Fully Available and Shipping
CableFree UNITY is already shipping and fully available worldwide through Approved CableFree Partners. The solutions are used extensively by Corporates, 4G/LTE Network Operators, Government, Banking, Healthcare, Education and Wireless Internet Service Provider (WISP) networks
