SIAE ALFOplus80 Series

From 2 - 10 Gbps E-Band Full Outdoor

Whether in mobile, xed or private networks, the E-band millimetre wave solution represents a fundamental technology tool bridging the gap between bre high capacity systems and exible cost e ective wireless transmission. Today, our 3rd generation E-band solution, the ALFOplus80HDX, achieves 10Gbps full-duplex, ultra-high capacity and represents an even better solution acting as a prime transmission media as with bre.

ALFOplus80HDX provides the same capacity of bre, highest deployment exibility and homogeneous operational behaviour as traditional microwave, allow operators to fully liaise on existing knowledge and skills, minimizing introduction costs, while modernizing the transport network.


ALFOplus80 series is a Full-Outdoor, full IP Next Generation Millimetre wave radio operating in the E-Band (71-76 GHz / 81-86 GHz).

The 3rd generation system ALFOplus80HDX is the ideal solution for ultra high capacity wireless links in urban environment for all carrier-class applications: mobile backhaul, fronthaul, enterprise, ISP.
