FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ELVA-1 Millimeter Wave Division Announced
Availability of New 155Mbit Mm-wave Links
New 155Mbit Full-Duplex Radio Links
for ETSI & FCC Mm-wave Bands Available from ELVA-1 Millimeter
St.Petersburg, Russia. December 11, 2004 -- ELVA-1
Millimeter Wave Division today introduced a new product line
of 155Mbit point-to-point microwave radio systems designed for
a wide range of applications such as mobile backhaul, business
networks, FSO backup, IP networks and emergency recovery
networks. The working frequencies cover all licensed and
unlicensed bands available in millimeter waves over 40GHz
according to FCC and ETSI standards, as well as to some
national frequency allocations: 40.5-43.5 GHz, 57-64 GHz,
71-75/81-86 GHz, 92-95 GHz.
These new radios are the result of further development of
PPC-100 Fast Ethernet 100Mbit full-duplex radios. The 155Mbit
product line consists of a basic model PPC-100/STM-1 with
STM-1 interface and the more advanced PPC-100FE/8E1 model
which features 100Mbit Fast Ethernet in the main channel plus
8x additional E1 channels, all of them transmitting
simultaneously with Fast Ethernet.
The primary applications for the PPC-100/STM-1 with STM-1
interface are wireless SDH / ATM rings. ELVA-1ís PPC-100/STM-1
systems provide an STM-1 optical interface, allowing these
links to be a part of the optical SDH ring. Especially in
urban areas where it is difficult to bring in optical fiber
due to cable trenching problems, PPC-100/STM-1 links make a
quick and cost-effective installation possible.
For PPC-100FE/8E1 models the primary applications are
interconnection between base station sites in cellular
networks (GSM / GPRS / UMTS). PPC-100FE/8E1 provides an ideal
intranet-intranet and intranet-public network connection
solution as wells as any LAN / WAN connection where there is a
requirement to combine data and voice services in one link.
Both the PPC-100/STM-1 and PPC-100FE/8E1 links feature remote
management and parameter monitoring capabilities. To
communicate with the link for SNMP and parameter control,
there is a separate twisted pair patch cable which can be
connected to any RJ-45 socket within the LAN, deployed within
the building. This allows remote SNMP management and remote
parameter monitoring of a number of ELVA-1 PPC-100xxx links
from a central location.
The 155 Mbps point-to-point millimeter wave radio systems are
available with a choice of three different sizes of compact
parabolic Cassegrain antenna - 30 cm, 45 cm, and 60 cm.
Depending on the link frequency, these antennas deliver
operating distances from about 1 mile to 9.5 miles (1.7 km to
15 km) during fair weather conditions. All PPC-100 links are
enclosed in environmental IP65 weather-sealed cases.

About Elva-1 Millimeter Wave Division
1993, ELVA-1 Millimeter Wave Division is based in
St.Petersburg, Russia. Since the year 2000, ELVA-1 has
aggressively expanded its product range to mm-wave telecom
products, such as 42GHz, 60GHz, 70/80 GHz and 94GHz
transmitters and receivers, antennas with a high gain factor
and other advanced products. Applications for these products
include mm-wave industrial measurement systems, 100Mbps
Ethernet wireless LAN bridges, MVDS out-door units (transmitters
and receivers), and LMDS communication systems, radar
front-ends, microwave level sensors, millimeter wave security
imaging systems and other innovative areas. The companies
product development roadmap includes next generation 1.25Gpbs
Gigabit Ethernet radios for 71-76/81-86 GHz and 94GHz bands to
be available first quarter 2005.
