ISPs and operators can, with a software upgrade, attain up to 200 Mbps per sector. The technology supports up to two 5, 10, 15, or 20 MHz channels that may be leveraged in a single sector or dual sector configuration. When used in a single sector, operators essentially double their capacity in scenarios with adequate spectrum.
When spectrum is limited, combining this new dual carrier capability with SFR provides up to a 40% increase in sector capacity. In dual sector mode, the BreezeCOMPACT provides two base stations in one, providing capacity that competitive solutions require two base stations to achieve. Attaining this kind of efficiency and performance will play a key role in operators’ business plans, where they are under constant pressure to increase customer throughput and density per sector while keeping expenses down.
