Wavence - microwave transmission

Prepare for the future with leading microwave innovation

Next generation 5G microwave networks require cost-effective and reliable solutions that maximize radio link performance, support advanced packet networking and simplify operations. The Wavence portfolio provides a complete microwave solution for all uses cases covering short-haul, long-haul, E-Band and SDN based management both for Service Providers and Enterprises. 

Why Nokia for Microwave transmission?

 

Market leader with key innovations

Major analysts (Dell’Oro, Skylight Research) continue to confirm Nokia's leadership in packet microwave and in the long-haul segment, with growing market share in all applications. Wavence’s full-packet architecture and its industry leading innovations both in E-Band and traditional bands are key to planing & delivering effective 5G mobile transport.

Complete portfolio with maximum performance

The comprehensive Wavence portfolio provides best-in class microwave in traditional bands (6-42 GHz), and E-Band (80 GHz) leveraging Nokia Bell Labs innovation. It provides the maximum efficiency thanks to 100% Carrier Aggregation, including for all 5G backhaul use cases across different frequency bands.

Flexible and future-proof solution

The family supports Zero-Footprint implementation for full-outdoor architectures and can be integrated directly with RAN and IP devices with common management. The SDN management enables E2E network slicing and one-click provisioning, analytics and workflow management which are essential fundamentals for next generation microwave transport networks.

Nokia Wavence introduces innovative, high-capacity ultra-broadband transceivers to support operators as they transition to 4.5G, 4.9G and 5G networks.

Wavence for Service Providers

5G ready microwave

Full 5G ready solution with highest capacity and ultra-low latency future networks. Nokia Wavence Ultra-Broadband Transceivers (UBT-C, UBT-S, UBT-T, UBT-m, UBT-mX, UBT-mU) provide fiber-like connectivity and throughput with 10G interfaces.

Microwave awareness

Wavence UBTs support any Zero-Footprint multi-band Carrier Aggregation to any unit at the cell site (microwave indoor unit, cell-site routers, base station) for flexible deployment.

Lowest TCO

The ultra-broadband transceivers with compact wideband and sub-band free radios, drastically simplify installation, maintenance and spare parts management for the Service Providers.

Zero-Footprint portfolio

The Nokia Wavence portfolio supports a full Zero-Footprint (ZFP) solution for Service Providers. It brings 5G connectivity for urban, suburban and rural use cases with multi-frequency carrier aggregation.

Flexible Carrier Aggregation

Wavence provides the best in class traffic management for any kind of user traffic types with the most efficient, industry proven Carrier Aggregation (uW-mmW, uW-uW) enabled by dual and wide-band antennas.

SDN management

As part of the Nokia Anyhaul solution with Carrier SDN and L3VPN, Wavence supports E2E service management and network slicing. This SDN solution via the Nokia Network Services Platform enables E2E automation and analytics for any Wavence microwave radio, band or topology.

Wavence for Industry and Public Sector

The Nokia Wavence portfolio is ideally suited to address the needs of mobile backhaul, energy, transportation, and public sector communications and last-mile service access.

Our mission is to support the different Enterprise market segments and provide a leading-edge Microwave solution for our Enterprise customers. Nokia has implemented a range of differentiating features in the Wavence Microwave platform aimed at satisfying Enterprise market needs.

End to End Management

With the Nokia Network Services Platform NSP we offer a full end 2 end management platform for IP/MPLS, DWDM & Microwave from a single pane of glass. Beyond this a lot of monitoring and reporting capabilities are implemented with NSP e.g. for identifying potential WiFi interference cases.

Microwave awareness

The Wavence Outdoor Units can be integrated with the Nokia router portfolio and build a Layer 3 end-to-end microwave network. In the management system the Microwave Radio appears as an integral component of the router.

Resiliency

Nokia Wavence is designed for Non-stop operation in critical infrastructures.

There are Full Redundant Control interfaces, Resilient Radio and Access Interfaces available. A dual power supply even for the Full Outdoor variant ensures a continuous operation.

Synchronisation and latency

The Nokia Wavence products support a high-quality end-to-end frequency & phase synchronization ranging from Sync-E up to 1588 V2 Transparent or Boundary Clock with a very low latency of some microseconds.

Full Indoor

Nokia still offers a full indoor solution where the antennas are connected with waveguides to the indoor radio. This is compliant with the most stringent safety regulations where no active part is allowed on the tower.

SDN management

As part of the Nokia Anyhaul solution with Carrier SDN and L3VPN, Wavence supports E2E service management and network slicing. This SDN solution via the Nokia Network Services Platform enables E2E automation and analytics for any Wavence microwave radio, band or topology.
