Anywhere Service Edge

Wireless Extension of the Service Edge with Fiber Equivalent Performance

Fastback's solution provides wireless fiber-equivalent services as "fiber fill-in" enabling mobile network operators to deliver on the universal consumer assumption of "Anytime Anywhere" access to services. Explosive growth of mobile data usage is driving densification of the mobile network to meet the demand for increased capacity and ubiquitous connectivity. As radio access networks increase in capacity, Fastback's technology enables transport networks to deliver a complement in density of coverage and bandwidth per square area in order for mobile network operators to provide a satisfactory user experience. The solution bridges the physical gap between the location of today's fiber service edge and all the other locations where fiber is not present and yet high performance backhaul with Carrier Ethernet 2.0 service capability is required to meet service demands.

  • Any Line of Sight: AnyLOS
    Fiber Equivalent Performance in Any Line of Sight™ Enables the Anywhere Service Edge
    Fastback AnyLOS™: Sustained performance that automatically aligns and adapts to any radio line of sight conditions.
    • Line of Sight similar to traditional point to point microwave at distances of a few kilometers, but without any precision alignment requirement
    • Near Line of Sight working around obstacles such as trees and across rooftops
    • Non-Line of Sight requiring radio waves to propagate around street corners and buildings

    Any Line of Sight capability means no service opportunity is out of reach. Mobile operators can locate Access nodes on any public or private asset. Fiber operators and ethernet backhaul providers can extend the reach of existing infrastructure to any location to expand services and customers.

    Any Line of Sight capability means one truck roll to install without any precision alignment requirement. The radios automatically maintain alignment for the life of the link without additional maintenance calls.

    Within evolving small cell deployments, it is clear that no two sites are alike. Forcing operators to know which radio to bring to each site based on which radio condition may or may not exist is a formidable burden. A single intelligent radio solution that adapts to the myriad of radio conditions is the most operationally efficient deployment strategy.

  • Carrier Ethernet 2.0 Services
    The Service Edge: High Capacity Fiber Point of Presence
    Delivery of applications and service with high quality experience

    UNI: MPLS, Carrier Ethernet
    Uniform transport layer to enable highest quality of experience for applications

    1588v2/SyncE
    Packet based timing and synchronization to enable coordinated delivery of services between macro and small cells

    SLA Assurance
    Standards based OAM and connectivity fault management to guarantee provider SLAs

    QoS
    Multi-level QoS to guarantee end to end service and application QoE

    Security
    State of the art military-grade RF layer security and data layer encryption across the radio link

    Scalability
    Field proven industry silicon and system building blocks to enable large scale deployments

  • Extreme Interference Protection (XIP™)
    Carrier Grade Backhaul Performance in Unlicensed Spectrum
    Unleashes 5 GHz Spectrum for LTE Backhaul

    XIP™ V1.0 Interference Mitigation Techniques

    • Millisecond (ms) level adaptation amongst 35, 18, or 9 MHz channel bandwidths
    • ms level frequency agility over 225 MHz of spectrum
    • Sub-ms level re-transmission of interfered blocks
    • ms level spatial agility amongst 8 spatial Rx views
    • Cancellation of certain dominant interferers
    • Independent optimization of uplink and downlink

    Requirements for high performance LTE backhaul require far more spectrum capacity for backhaul, impacting capacity constraints for licensed bands and creating a challenge for mobile operators. In the past, unlicensed bands were rarely used for carrier grade mobile backhaul because the devices could not effectively mitigate interference. Now, Extreme Interference Protection (XIP™), Fastback's patented algorithms for interference mitigation, enables the IBR to sustain the high throughput and low latency service requirements of LTE backhaul while simultaneously mitigating even the severe levels of interference common in unlicensed spectrum.

    XIP mitigates the effects of uncoordinated and self-interference to enable new applications of unlicensed spectrum including LTE macrocell and small cell backhaul. The IBR interference mitigation capability enables sustained, carrier grade performance in unlicensed spectrum to a SLA. This functionality establishes new levels of certainty and reliability for use of unlicensed spectrum, along with the advantages of tapping hundreds of MHz of available 5 GHz spectrum to relieve the capacity constraints of licensed bands.
