FWA Solutions announces the addition of Huber+Suhner (UK) and its Sencity Link Wireless Ethernet connectivity solutions to its product portfolio of vendors.
Following OFCOM’s announcement to permit the use of the 60GHz band “for Fixed Wireless Services, on a licence exempt basis”, FWA Solutions was keen to find a competitive solution for the UK market from an established vendor in this field.
Huber+Suhner uses the new generation of microwave technology to achieve unique practical benefits: high data throughput, compact design, easy installation, smooth operation and secure connectivity.
Sencity Link SL60 is the WAN/LAN solution for wireless point to point connections. The system uses wireless technology to transmit Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet over the air between sites.
The discrete integrated antenna is practically invisible, making this compact design perfect for use on customer buildings or in city centres.
Thanks to the oxygen absorption in the 60 GHz frequency range, multiple connections can be configured in the same area without causing interference.
The system is totally secure by using a proprietary synchronisation algorithm that makes the Sencity Link system tap-proof.
The Sencity SL60 range is currently available in three product variants offering speeds from 100Mbps Full Duplex to 320Mbps Full Duplex at distances of between 800m and 1.6Km.
FWA Solutions’ Managing Director, David Penny, comments, “We have been a long time waiting for the release of this band in the UK, but now it is released our most common requirement from the market, for a true carrier grade 100Mbps Full Duplex link, is available for less than £5000. We can now offer our customers high speed carrier class solutions at virtually the same price as some of the Wireless LAN based products on the market.” Adds Penny.
Robin George, Product Manager for the Sencity range, says “We are naturally delighted to partner with FWA Solutions as our first UK distributor for SL60. Many other countries have already approved the use of the 60GHz band and our Sencity products have found widespread use in many applications throughout the World. With its experience of the UK wireless marketplace, FWA Solutions is ideally placed to help its customers make the best use of our technology.”
