New LigoWave LigoPTP 5-23/5-N PRO

Today LigoWave has released its highest capacity, license-free PTP device with the release of the LigoPTP PRO series product line. Making use of ground breaking 2x2 MiMo technology, the LigoPTP 5-23/5-N PRO delivers real aggregate throughput capability of up to 220 Mbps (110 Mbps full-duplex) combined with high packets-per-second performance.

This is an upgrade to their existing PTP bridges that we have been installing for several years now with great success. The release of this updated version makes this PTP product, we believe, to be the best on the market.

What other manufacturer gives you 802.3af, 220mbps throughput, 60,000 packets per sec, IP-67 protection and a free management solution - WNMS. All this for a fraction of the cost of other manufacturers.

Main LigoWave PRO highlights:

  • 220 Mbps of real throughput
  • 60,000 PPS rate
  • Proven and easy to use OS
  • Auto-modulation, auto-channel and automatic transmit power control
  • DFS 3 support
  • Gigabit Ethernet port with 802.3af support
  • Improved surge protection according IEC standards
  • Professional articulating mounting bracket
  • IP-67 standards compliant enclosure
  • External OLED screen for antenna alignment and link testing
  • WNMS (Wireless Network Management System) support
  • Compatible with previous generation LigoPTP MiMo devices

Additionally, the new product is compatible with previous LigoPTP 5-23 MiMo and LigoPTP 5-N MiMo models. This product enables carrier-class point-to-point capability, ideal for dedicated access or backhaul applications (including VOIP or other small packet applications). The Ligo PTP PRO product family couples flexible channel width capability (20 or 40 MHz) and industry-leading proprietary software mechanisms to set the utmost standard in spectral efficiency.

The LigoPTP 5-23/5-N PRO products feature either an integrated dual-polarized antenna or two N-type connectors. They are housed in rugged, cast aluminum enclosures. Combining digital signal processing, dual polarization antennas and proprietary W-Jet 2 MiMo protocol these bridges have a high spectral efficiency of 7.5bit/Hz.

The LigoPTP 5-23/5-N PRO showcase an array of advanced software mechanisms that provide optimal point-to-point connectivity for high-throughput, long distance links.

LigoWave's proprietary PTP mechanisms utilise techniques such as Dynamic Time Division Duplexing (TDD) to dynamically allocate bandwidth in the direction needed, thus increasing link efficiency and greatly decreasing the impact that distance has on throughput of the link.

The LigoWave point-to-point products also features selective repeat ARQ technology, an enhanced error-correction software mechanism that optimizes data traffic to provide very high throughput over high-bandwidth, long-range links even in the presence of interference.

The new PRO series products have an extremely powerful integrated 30 dB (1000 mW) radio which allows building solid long-distance links even with an integrated antenna. The output power on highest modulation (MCS 15) is 24 dBi which is hard to find elsewhere in the market today.

Gigabit Ethernet port and 802.3af standard support makes the PRO series product line even more flexible. Im-provements on the SURGE and ESD protection side make this product ideal for mission critical and harsh-weather condition installations. SURGE and ESD protection was designed according to IEC 61000-4-2 (ESD) and IEC 61000-4-5 (SURGE) standards.

The LigoPTP 5-23/5-N PRO is also compatible with LigoWave's online link calculator and WNMS, a centralised configuration, firmware, and statistics server offered by LigoWave for remote diagnostic and configuration.

Wireless Network Monitoring - WNMS

WNMS is a FREE enterprise grade Wireless Network Management system available for download at LigoWave's website.
