SkyWay 7000 Professional Series
5.8 GHz Broadband Wireless
Technology Summary

Continuing Solectek's tradition in high throughput, long distance wireless networking, the SkyWay 7000 Professional Series builds upon the successful SkyWay Series products with a new, higher performance 5.8 GHz wireless system.

With data rates to 108 Mbps and up to 400 mW of RF power, SkyWay 7000 delivers more capacity, farther than ever before. Such capability allows end-users to download large data files, high resolution images, video clips, and MP3 files within a matter of seconds. Streaming video and multiple VoIP connections can now be delivered or backhauled seamlessly.

Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) technology delivers a wealth of benefits: high spectral efficiency supports class leading data rates while allowing multiple, nonoverlapping channels. OFDM is also capable of robust operation in near or non-line-of-sight (NLOS) link conditions, relaxing the stringent installation requirements associated with more traditional fixed wireless equipment.

Quality of Service (QoS) features within the SkyWay 7000 architecture allow tagged voice and video traffic to take priority over general data packet transfer, providing reliable, real-time capability even under congested link conditions. Priority privileges for marked frames are maintained from port to port: Ethernet through RF.

With security remaining a key consideration in many applications, the SkyWay 7000 delivers 128 bit AES encryption / decryption at full line speed. The AES algorithm was selected to be the standard encryption method of the US Government by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

Physically, the SkyWay 7000 Professional Series is fully integrated. The network engine, digital baseband, radio and antenna are all combined into a single, weatherized outdoor chassis, complete with Power over Ethernet (PoE) support. Guaranteed operational from -30C to +60C, the product can be installed at any convenient outdoor location needing only inexpensive Ethernet CAT5 cable for connection to an indoor network switch.

The SkyWay 7000 is truly an enterprise class system that comes complete with full function bridge/router software and extensive network protocol and network management support.

Combining a high power, 108 Mbps OFDM radio with a high performance, QoS based bridge/router engine, the SkyWay 7000 Professional Series is a powerful, yet easy-to-use product for all of your point-to-point and multipoint broadband wireless needs.
