Breaking More Deployment Limitations and Getting Better ROI
Edgecore Networks, a leading provider of traditional and open network solutions for enterprises, data centers, and telecommunication service providers, today announced a firmware upgrade of their Terragraph certified products ── MLTG-CN, and MLTG-CN LR ── breaking more terrain and deployment limitations, and bringing a higher ROI.
Edgecore Networks has been devoted to 60GHz innovation. The recent firmware upgrade has empowered the MLTG-CN and MLTG-CN LR with more features. The MLTG-CN and MLTG-CN LR can now function not only in client mode to receive wireless gigabit connectivity, but also in base-station (MLTG-CN) mode to distribute the connections.
Compared with other distribution nodes in the market, the MLTG-CN is more flexible in its alignment angles. Using different mounting brackets, the alignment angles can be adjusted both vertically and horizontally to achieve the best connection signal. For example, in a residential area, to provide connectivity among buildings of different heights and with different distances, you can choose the MLTG-CN as the base station and have the MLTG-CN working in client mode for short-range connections, while using the MLTG-CN LR for long-range connections, building a complete and flexible network for the entire area. Through the flexible deployment options, ISPs can optimize their network architecture, speed network deployment, and further reduce deployment costs to improve the ROI of network construction.
Under the management of the ecCLOUD controller, the MLTG-CN can quickly build links with other client devices, eliminating the tedious process of making manual settings. Through ecCLOUD, the system can automatically detect all nearby client devices in the same channel and generate a MAC list. IT staff then only need to select a specific client device’s MAC and the connection is built automatically after applying the setting. In addition, the system automatically detects the connection status. When a disconnection occurs, it will automatically reconnect and send a notification to the IT staff.
In base station mode, the MLTG-CN can concurrently connect up to 15 client devices and deliver blazing-fast Point-to-Multipoint (PtMP) links with a fiber-like multi-gigabit aggregate throughput of up to 2 Gbps. For long-range Point-to-Point (PtP) links, the MLTG-CN LR is the ideal option. The MLTG-CN LR can be paired to rapidly build PtP links of up to 1 km for backhaul or last-mile access, and deliver multi-gigabit throughput of up to 3.6 Gbps.
“With the firmware upgrade, the Edgecore MLTG-series now has more powerful and complete features, which removes more deployment limitations,” said Tengtai Hsu, Vice President of Edgecore Networks. “With ecCLOUD, IT staff can establish network connections faster through the intuitive user interface, and monitor network connection status anytime, anywhere to solve problems in a timely manner. Users can now choose the right solution according to different needs, such as the deployment environment or budget, and have a high-speed, stable, and secure network environment at the most cost-effective price.”
