FibeAir® IP-20C - All-outdoor, compact, all-IP multi-carrier node

Ceragon’s FibeAir IP-20C wireless backhaul node enables you to increase your operational efficiency, ensure your peace of mind and enhance your subscribers’ quality of experience.

Ceragon's groundbreaking FibeAir IP-20C multicore wireless node delivers up to 2Gbps for any deployment scenario, from macro-cell and small-cell backhaul, to aggregation and multi-carrier trunk in all-outdoor environments 
Unparalleled spectral efficiency, accommodating 2Ggbps over a single 56MHz channel (or 1Gbps over a 28MHz channel), increases operational efficiency and enhances customers' quality of experience.
Designed to accommodate future needs, the node can double capacity when needed with a remote click, via the two wireless carriers integrated into one box. Based on multi-core technology, the node uses a common, parallel radio processing engine, built around Ceragon’s baseband modem and RFIC chipsets, centralizing resources, multiplying bandwidth and increasing system gain (signal strength). 
Ceragon's in-house developed capabilities, such as interference cancelation, 4X4 LOS MIMO, XPIC and advanced frequency reuse translate into true operational efficiency, providing much greater capacity, reduced power consumption, smaller, easier-to-install antennas and simplified management. 
The IP-20C node complies with advanced Carrier Ethernet MEF 2.0, enabling a rich variety of Ethernet-based services.

An industry-leading solution for high-capacity, high spectral efficiency, tail site and wireless backhaul chain all-IP connectivity.

The FibeAir IP-20S is part of the FibeAir IP-20 platform, featuring the unified CeraOS operating system, which streamlines wireless backhaul network modernization, operation and management.
