Many mobile operators have chosen to lease transmission by wirelines. Increased trafﬁc volume results directly in an increased burden on the operational cost. By investing in your own infrastructure new services can be introduced and trafﬁc demands can be handled without any signiﬁcant increase in cost. As your subscribers increase the network usage you can effortlessly expand your system by reconﬁguring the capacity by software. The new Evolution Series makes it easier for you to deploy your own backhaul network and accelerates the return on investment. unleashing broadband networks ? 3g, wimax or wired Broadband, Nera’s backhaul solutions ﬁt all. Backhaul of wimax and other proprietary ptmp systems can often be a headache. Likewise for wired Broadband (adsl and xdsl), the existing infrastructure may not be dimensioned for the new services. In many cases it is not the cost of deploying the dslam or fwa networks, which makes a business case ﬂy or crash, rather it is the cost of establishing backhaul infrastructure. With the Evolution Series you can pay as you grow, with easily increase of capacity as the trafﬁc demand increases. www.nera.no NERA NETWORKS Norway USA Singapore Nera Networks AS Nera Inc.

EVOLUTION SERIES Introducing Nera Evolution Series, the common platform microwave radio system that scales with your growing ambitions. Effortlessly. EVOLUTION SERIES: STAYING ON THE CUTTING EDGE Traditionally, microwave radios have been designed to operate at very speciﬁc capacities and frequencies, and the process of changing these two parameters has involved high switching costs requiring additional investment. With the deployment of next-generation networks such as 3G, UMTS and WiMax on the increase, it’s imperative that these networks are based on equipment versatile enough to handle not only today’s communication technology, but also equipment that is future-proof. Ready for what you need – when you need it. Can this be done without breaking the budget – today, and without major and expensive replacements in the future? The answer is yes! By using Nera’s new Evolution Series. lower costs – now and in the future Signiﬁcant saving in network deployment and operation are achieved by the use of one common hardware platform across the whole network. Furthermore, planning and installation activities are simpliﬁed due to mainstream mechanical design and conﬁguration, and costs for inventory and maintenance are minimized. Increased reliability - the total life-cycle cost for the Evolution series is minimised by use of high-level integration and a simpliﬁed architecture; as a result, high Mean Time Between Failure (mtbf) as well as reduction in potential revenue loss due to outages and lower opex can be achieved. Increased ﬂexibility - Transmission is scalable in multiple directions from a single radio node which allows the operator to explore various network topologies such as ring, chain/star and mesh - all with the same, universal type of equipment. User selectable modulation rates from qpsk to 128 state / multi-dimensional and provide the operator with a choice between system gain and lower licencing fees. Seamless integration between pdh and sdh enables site selectable conﬁguration from 4e1/t1 to 3+1 stm-1/ OC-3 – you pay as you grow. freedom – software def ined scalability The new Evolution Series offers operators the freedom to change established backhaul bandwidth/capacity, quickly and easily under software control. No physical replacements are necessary. Upgrades can be done instantly, and remotely – you can redeﬁne the conﬁguration by simply upgrading the licence by means of software – you pay as you grow. These features allow the operator to minimise licencing cost and the resources spent on ensuring mobile network performance. They also enable the operator to focus more on business issues such as attracting additional customers and revenue rather than operational barriers to growth. control – optimum monitoring Conﬁgure. Manage. Monitor. NetMaster is the network management system that keeps it all at your ﬁngertips. This powerful multiplatform application features an intuitive and user friendly gui. It provides automatic network discovery and conﬁguration, fault management with alarm correlation, trouble ticketing and performance management; all by the same licence principle as the rest of the Evolution Series - you pay as you grow. EVOLUTION SERIES AT A GLANCE The impact of Nera Evolution Series is simply remarkable. It’s a true revolution in radio systems – yet we’re modest enough to name it Evolution. The biggest advantage of the new Evolution Series is its ability to effortlessly scale according to the user’s needs. Either you choose the ip, xpand or metro conﬁguration as your starting point, you can redeﬁne their conﬁguration by simply upgrading their licence by software as your network grows, and trafﬁc increases. The Evolution Series also offers future prooﬁng in terms of transmission solutions/protocols. It handles scalable pdh e1/t1, sdh/sonet and Ethernet all in the same platform. A change of network transmission protocols is merely a change of interface modules in the Evolution Series. ������������������ ����������������� ��� ��� ��� ��� �� ��������� ������ ��������������� �������� ����������� ������� �� ����� ����� ��������� ip The private operators does not want the SDH technology as its known for high cost (in Cisco gear). PDH is similarly not wanted due to the association with E1/T1 and E3/DS3 physical interface ports. Most networks are all-IP, i.e. no need for TDM trafﬁc. Operators are ﬁbre oriented, due to bandwidth. Wireless are often associated with WLAN - Nera needs to show feasibility and advantages! xpand The mobile operators wants to have ﬂexible equipment and to be able to upgrade capacity without the need for replacing equipment. Mainly E1/T1 oriented but growing awareness of Ethernet. Large network deployments > 1000 links, leads to savings and simpliﬁcations by a common platform. Radio is a well known technology. metro Metro is a well know term in transport networks, deﬁning the area between the last mile access and the inner core area. Typically this is a ring structured SDH/Ethernet transport network in urban areas. Market dominated by ﬁbre solutions, radio is in a challenger position. EVOLUTION SERIES ������ �� �� Nera’s long leading position in high capacity microwave systems has given the necessary technology and knowhow to implement innovative and reliable solutions. The new Nera Evolution Series Microwave radio sets new standards in innovative microwave radio development. The Evolution Series is built around a software deﬁned core, enabling a wide range of radio applications being served based on one single product platform. The high level of ﬂexibility, both in payload capacity and in system conﬁgurations allows operations to re-think their network deployment and operations. The New Evolution Series is based on an indoor interface unit (ifu) and an outdoor radio unit, (odu). �������� ������� ��� ���������� ����������� interface unit (ifu) The ifu is highly modular and all interfaces are plug-in from the front. The high degree of ﬂexibility is enabled by the software deﬁned core which can be conﬁgured for pdh, sdh/sonet or Packet based trafﬁc. The interface modules are generic and can be used in all applicable system conﬁgurations. This way a truly seamless integration can be achieved in the network. The basic ifu is 1ru high (44 mm) and up to four ifus can be stacked to enable multi direction trafﬁc nodes or n+1 conﬁgurations enabling substantial savings in the network deployment cost. odu The Evolution Series odu is a compact low power consumption unit. The odu has common form and ﬁt for all frequencies, simplifying logistics for deployment and antenna installation. The odu can be mounted integrated on the antenna or on the pole behind the antenna. The odu has wide tuning range and all settings are performed from the management system. The atpc function combined with rtpc enables ﬁne tuning of the transmit power in dense networks reducing the interference levels and resulting in a more optimised microwave network. Nera unique high power versions in frequencies up to 11 GHz ensure sufﬁcient output power to overcome difﬁcult paths or enables saving by use of smaller antennas. �������� ������� �������������������� �� �� ethernet The telecom networks are quickly converging towards all ip. Ethernet is a natural carrier for ip based services and the Nera Evolution Series is designed with this in mind. The Ethernet trafﬁc can be carried over all system architectures and conﬁgurations such as pdh, sdh/sonet and Proprietary Ethernet only. The capacity can be scaled in steps of 2 Mb/s or 1.5 Mb/s to 600 Mb/s The Ethernet services can be conﬁgured as Point to Point L1 with selectable MAC learning/ ﬁltering or L2 with switched VLAN multipoint to multipoint. The strong QoS mode secures and priorities the revenue generating and mission critical data. Virtual concatenation combined with Link Capacity Adjustment Scheme (lcas) is used to enable dynamically scaling of Ethernet capacity, as well as soft protection resulting in an increased network utilisation. ������ dxc/adm The optional 4 way dxc unit enables signiﬁcant savings in access networks. The trafﬁc node concept results in less cabling, no need for external multiplexer/cross connect and increased reliability. In sdh/ sonet networks the dxc enables any network topology such as ring, mesh, chain/star where the trafﬁc (e1, t1, e3, ds3 and Ethernet) can be individually protected by sncp. In pdh mode the dxc function is an embedded function in the ifu. The link capacities are scalable between 4e1 to 75e1 (4t1 to 64t1), and the dxc function enables aggregation of trafﬁc without the cabling between the link directions. ���������� ����������� modem The modem in the Nera Evolution Series is an all digital implementation, combined with dual error coding ensuring reliable transmission of the trafﬁc under any conditions. The use of direct@RF modulation, combined with signiﬁcant simpliﬁcation in architecture, results in a signiﬁcant improvement in reliability. The modem includes an integrated digital xpic - enabling ccdp mode conﬁguration in multi channel systems. Without need for synchronisation between the radio units simplifying the installation of the odu part. The ccdp mode enables transmission of 311 Mb/s over 28/30/40 MHz channels, and 620 Mb/s over 55/56 MHz channels. management The Nera Evolution Series has an embedded web server simplifying the management and operation of the system. The web based management enables a platform independent and lct version independent management and conﬁguration operation. This ensures that maintenance personnel always will have the right tools and software upgrades does not affect the local operation. The embedded web server provides powerful wizards guiding the user through the commissioning and conﬁguration procedures. The local alarm log provides access to historical events without the need for access to the NMS. Transmission performance is continuously monitored by the system and performance data is presented on the web interface. Operation security is ensured by user name and access level rights. All conﬁguration data is stored in non-volatile memory which easily can be backed up on a PC, memory key or the NMS.
