So, you can communicate over water and at terrain. Plus,the system’s eco-mode reduces power consumption.
CAPACITY AS YOU GROW
Typically, demand or capacity grows during the lie o anetwork. To accommodate that growth, you can purchasethe PTP 800 throughput you need today and increasethroughput capacity as needed. This capacity-as-you-growscalability can reduce your initial capital expenditureby not having to pay or tomorrow’s needs with today’sbudget. Instead, you can match throughput capacity toyour application requirements or, or carriers and serviceproviders, to your developing demand and revenue stream.In addition, you can assign dierent throughput capacitiesto the up and down links.PTP 800 Compact Modem Units are shipped with a actory-set 10 Mbps capacity cap, meaning that throughput is set toa maximum o 10 Mbps at the user Ethernet port. When yourequire more than 10 Mbps, you can upgrade the throughputcapacity without any change to the hardware. Single-step orstep-by-step capacity upgrades can be implemented at thetime o purchase and/or anytime ater deployment.
The PTP 800’s dynamic Adaptive Coding and Modulation(ACM) eature provides perormance benefts or manyIP-based applications. When ACM is selected, the systemautomatically “up-shits” and “down-shits” the modulationand/or coding rate as path conditions change. This enablesradio transmitters and receivers to negotiate the highestmutually sustainable data rate.During good weather, the radio will “up-shit” to a highermodulation level and/or higher coding rate to improvespectral efciency and increase throughput and availability.I the link’s Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR) alls belowthe threshold that your link can sustain, as can occurduring heavy rain, the radio will “down shit” to a lowermodulation level and/or lower coding rate. The resultingimprovement in receive sensitivity enables your link tocontinue operating.With exceptionally smooth change steps, errorless codingand modulation technology, and a hitless algorithm, youwill experience no service interruption as the modulationsteps rom one level to another. Many comparable systemsneed several seconds to adjust the modulation mode whichcauses outages as the radios switch modes.
There are many applications such as 9-1-1 dispatch,video surveillance, and online stock trades or which acommunication outage is just not acceptable. In suchcrucial situations, you will want hardware redundancyto support your vital unctions with uninterrupted, real-time communications. While hardware redundancy is notrequired to deploy PTP 800 links, it is recommended or eachlink which supports a critical application or process.PTP 800 links can be deployed as 1+1 hot standby (HSB)links, 2+0 redundant links in a ring or mesh confguration,and non-redundant links. HSB links are designed to provideull redundancy in the event o a single CMU (CompactModem Unit) or radio (either ODU or IRFU) ailure at one orboth ends o a link. I a ailure occurs, the secondary unitwill automatically take over communications. You can alsoachieve redundancy by deploying PTP 800 systems in aring or mesh confguration with two independent links andan external switch. Non-redundant links are good choicesto support applications or which you would not incursignifcant consequences in the event o a ailure. I youdeploy a non-redundant link, you can later upgrade to a 1+1or 2+0 confguration without changing your hardware.
While many traditional microwave solutions oer ewersecurity eatures, our PTP 800 systems support a robust,multi-layered approach to inormation security. To protectyour over-the-air transmissions, PTP 800 radios include ourproprietary air interace. Added protection can be appliedwith Federal Inormation Processing Standards (FIPS) 197compliant 128-bit or 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard(AES) encryption.PTP 800 systems also meet FIPS 140-2
guidelines orcryptographic algorithms, key security and tamper evidence.Together AES and FIPS 140-2 oer robust security to protecthighly sensitive inormation rom malicious incidents. (AESand FIPS 140-2 are optional eatures.)Added security eatures include:
HTTPS/TLS and SNMP v3:
HTTPS/TLS, the secureversion o HTTP, protects the system’s managementinterace. Simple Network Management Protocol(SNMP) version 3 adds security and remote confgurationenhancements to SNMP. In certain cases, a license key isrequired to implement these capabilities.
PTP 800 systems supportauthenticated Simple Network Time Protocol (SNTP)messaging.
