Harris Corp. has announced that its TRuepoint digital microwave radio platform is now available with 32 E1 and IP interfaces. The additional E1 connections allow network operators to cost-effectively maximize PDH capacity on the TRuepoint radio while providing simultaneous data transport capabilities, the company explained. This new enhancement supports today's evolving cellular networks and services.

As global networks grow, more bandwidth is required at cell sites to reliably deliver advanced applications and ensure QoS. The additional capacity provided by the TRuepoint 32 E1 and IP capacity upgrade allows operators to leverage the investment in their existing network infrastructure. By simply adding an interface with additional E1 connections, operators can take full advantage of their current PDH capacity capabilities. The modular, software-selectable architecture of TRuepoint is able to seamlessly switch between PDH and SDH applications, Harris said, allowing operators to have a clear upgrade path to SDH applications when more capacity is required.

"The 32 E1 and IP feature upgrade was the next logical step in the evolution of the TRuepoint family," said Asif Rahman, product line management VP for the microwave communications division at Harris. "Operators are constantly seeking ways to cut costs and offer more capacity on their networks to keep their competitive edge," and TRuepoint will actively increase its functionality to meet the needs of global operators, Rahman continued.

The 32 E1 and IP capacity upgrade further builds on the advancements of the TRuepoint platform, which is equipped with remote capacity control and secure network management features. Remote capacity control enables wireless operators to scale capacity on any TRuepoint microwave link within their global networks to deliver performance when and where it is needed, Harris explained.

The secure network management feature enables wireless operators to remotely manage any TRuepoint platform anywhere in the world using a broad selection of security protocols, and also gives them the ability to create pre-defined access permissions with Remote Authentication Dial-In User Services (RADIUS) and event-logging capabilities. This provides customers with the required access control to centrally manage a global wireless network.

According to Harris, TRuepoint, which is deployed in 70 countries, is currently the only microwave digital radio platform in the industry combining 32 E1 and IP interfaces, remote bandwidth control and secure network management. The new enhancement to TRuepoint is already available.
