CFIP PhoeniX

Split Mount Radio System

Intended for classic telecom architecture

CFIP PhoeniX split mount system is designed to fit in a classic telecom architecture with a radio located outdoor and a sheltered indoor unit. CFIP PhoeniX also enables transition from TDM networks to hybrid TDM/IP networks providing up to 20E1 + GigE. Total maximum capacity is up to 366 Mbps full duplex.

Highlights and Benefits

High Capacity Throughput

Market-proven technology supporting 256 QAM modulation and 56 MHz channel bandwidth ensures a high throughput capacity of up to 20E1 channels or 363 Mbps per radio.

Flexible network configuration

With four Gigabit Ethernet ports it is possible to install the system in various network topologies (for instance, ring, repeater chain) and configurations (aggregation, 1+1 link protection in HSB/FD/SD, port-separated management).

Low Power Consumption

Modern components and latest technologies applied in CFIP PhoeniX make it one of the most energy efficient equipment currently on the market of licenced-bands microwave radio systems.

Excellent for network upgrade

Flexible TDM/IP architecture allows easy transition from TDM-only to hybrid or IP-only network using single highly adjustable PhoeniX device (per site).

Industrial grade design

Fanless cooling system and split mount architecture makes CFIP PhoeniX highly reliable, maintenance free and conveniently scalable digital microwave radio.

Enhanced Ethernet functionality

Built-in managed Gigabit Ethernet switch supports QoS, up to 4093 concurrent VLANs, 9728 bytes jumbo frames and other essential features, which allow to setup and maintain highly customized end-user connectivity services.
