W-band demo: 5G capacity at any band

By Itay Gerhard 4 min read

With capacity demands continuing to skyrocket, mobile operators and service providers must look beyond traditional Microwave bands and consider Millimeter Wave bands for both licensed and unlicensed deployments. As the visionary and innovative global leader in wireless transport, Ceragon has developed a new point-to-point W-Band radio (90-110GGHz)We invite you to be among the first to see our LIVE Demo. Enjoy.

Hi, everyone. I'm Itay. I'm here in Ceragon R&D laboratory. In HQ.

Today, I'm going to demonstrate you a live link of W-band, which is a frequency range of 92 up to 120 GHz. Today I'm a passing traffic of 10 Gbps from side to side using this traffic generator, and I want to show you in a minute, I will do it in a minute. These are the 2 units of the W-band, which are basically the same as IP50E.

The only difference is the transmitter- receiver inside the system using a different RFAC, which is in-house development of Ceragon Here you can see 2 bridges of a WR 15 waveguides connected from TX to RX, TX to RX. There is no diplexers in this system. This is the spectrum analyzer, which is doing a up-converter to 92 up to 120. This is the spectrum.

Today I demonstrate 108 GHz frequency. And this is the RFIC chip. I will show you in a minute. Ok. So, this is the traffic generator, as I mentioned before, You can see here the TX side transmitting 9999 Mbps to the other side of 9999 Mbps. You can see here the green, which means that all clear, there is no packet loss, no loss, no drops.

This is the second side: you can see the TX - 9999 Mbps to the other side of 9999. Also, green, there's no drops. Here you can see the spectrum analyzer. You can see here 108 GHz center. Ok? As I mentioned before, the bandwidth is 2 GHz. Which can pass up to 10 Gbps traffic. Here you can see the setup from zoom in.

There are 3 units of the W-band, as I mentioned before, which is basically identical to the IP50E. The only difference is that TRX inside is using different RFIC. As I mentioned, it's development of Ceragon, in-house. You can see the 2 bridges connected side to side. Why they are 2 Because there are no Diplexers. And you can see it from TX to RX, TX to RX. I'll connect with WR15 Waveguides. This is the spectrum analyzer of Agilent. And which is doing up convertor to 75 up to 110 GHz. This is RFIC chip. See how small it is. And basically that's all.
