Further Product Information


Long distance, full duplex link

The Airmux-200 and 400 are carrier-class, high capacity, affordable multiplexer, connecting E1/T1 and Ethernet networks point-to-point over a wireless link. Compliant with FCC, CAN/CSA and ETSI regulations for license-exempt transmission, the Airmux-200 operates over 5.7–5.85 and 5.25–5.35 (FCC, CAN/CSA) GHz, 5.4–5.7 (ETSI) GHz, 4.9 GHz (FCC), and 2.4* (ETSI and FCC) GHz bands. Wireless transmission enables enterprises to save the cost of leased lines while eliminating the service provider’s need for deploying fiber, thereby enabling rapid deployment of E1/T1 and Ethernet links at a fraction of the cost.


The Airmux-200 and 400 consists of an indoor and an outdoor unit connected by a Cat-5e outdoor Ethernet cable, allowing a maximum distance of 100 meters (328 feet) between the two units. The outdoor unit can be ordered with an integrated antenna or with a connector for an external antenna.

The Airmux 5000 is a Point to Multi-Point version of the Airmux 4000 utilizing sector based access points with support for up to 200 Mbps. Remote CPEs support rates up to 20 Mbps full duplex for SLA environments. Low latency and multi-point distances up to 40km separate this product from all others.


Long distance, full duplex link

The Airmux-200 integrates up to four unframed E1 or T1 ports and up to two Ethernet ports for a total air interface throughput of 48 Mbps. This is equivalent to a net payload throughput of up to 18 Mbps full duplex. The maximum range of the Airmux-200 is 80 km (50 miles). Throughput is a function of the distance and regulation.

The Airmux-400 integrates up to sixteen* unframed E1 or T1 ports and up to two Ethernet ports for a total air interface throughput of 105 Mbps. This is equivalent to a net payload throughput of up to 50 Mbps full duplex. The maximum range of the Airmux-400 is 120 km (75 miles). Throughput is a function of the distance and regulation.

The Airmux 5000 supports a Point to Multi-Point topology with rates up 200Mbps at the base and full duplex 20Mbps at the remotes. (full rate available in Q3/2011)

An integrated 10/100BaseT Ethernet bridge transparently forwards frames and learns up to 2,000 MAC addresses. The accurate E1/T1 clock recovery, low round-trip delay and high link availability position the Airmux-200 as a carrier-class wireless transmission system.


Advanced encryption and security features

The Airmux-200, 400 and 5000 incorporate safeguards to secure the wireless transmission against possible attack. The advanced encryption standard (AES) and dynamic encryption key change are aimed to prevent unauthorized eavesdropping. These mechanisms, together with a coded time stamp (CCM), prevent false transmission from an intruding terminal. The network management system and the equipment are protected by a password and a challenge/response scheme.


An Airmux-200, 400 or 5000 link can be managed by a Windows-based application supplied with the device. The RADview SNMP fault management application can be ordered in cases where multiple links are to be deployed and managed from a central platform. All parameter configurations are link-based, simplifying maintenance and installation.


The Airmux-200, 400 and 5000 are perfect solutions for connecting remote enterprise locations, cellular backhaul, broadband Last Mile services and hotspot backhauling.
