Product Documentation

ML2.5-60-BF-18-US Datasheet 

The MetroLinqTM 2.5G 60 Beamforming Sector is a powerful 60GHz MultiPoint base-station packed with the latest technologies from IgniteNet. This new radio can achieve 2.5Gbps capacity allowing the construction of multi-gigabit, future-proof hybrid fibre wireless networks quickly and cost-effectively. Using the latest phased array beamforming antenna design allows 120° area coverage with an improved performance when focusing the signal to a specific client when data is transmitted and received.

120° Beamforming Antenna


The new beamforming sector antenna has a 120° area coverage, but during the communication with each client device 16 narrow beam steps of 10° are used, which improves noise immunity and assures security of your links.
