In response to the growing dominance of IP as the carrier protocol over TDM, the Wave1 MV420 focuses on serving the backhaul needs of next-generation all IP networks for network operators and enterprises. Wave1's MV420 is an all outdoor licensed microwave link that greatly simplifies the installation requirements. Unlike the traditional split architecture (OUD-IDU) systems, the MV420 has zero footprint at the ground level without the need for climate-controlled equipment shelters and associated site rental costs. The MV420 features high output power of up to 30dBm for long distance transmissions with a variety of frequency band and channel BW options. The addition of 256QAM modulation adds even higher capacity for short-hop applications.
