MDS Intrepid HC MX
MDS Intrepid HC OIP
High Capacity Point-to-Point Wireless Backhaul
Up to 38 GHz Licensed

GE's MDS™ Intrepid HC products offer a long-distance, high capacity point-to-point licensed wireless backhaul solution ideal for industrial and commercial-grade applications. MDS Intrepid HC MX and Intrepid HC OIP provide highly secure, time sensitive and mission critical communications backhauled to a centralized location. Offered in the traditional FCC/ETSI microwave frequencies between 6 GHz and 38 GHz, these devices can be used globally in developed and developing countries.

Key Benefits
•  Operates in the secure FCC/ETSI licensed bands up to 38 GHz
•  Provides scalable throughput options of up to 350 Mbps
•  Available in non-protected (1+0), protected (1+1), and ring protected configurations
•  Software selectable options eliminate future hardware upgrades
•  Designed to optimize throughput while minimizing latencies for faster data transmission
•  Optional diversity protection with errorless switching ensures continuous communication
•  Rugged construction for extreme environments
•  Definable authorization lists to prevent unauthorized access
•  Password protected access and lockdown
MDS Intrepid HC MX - TDM to IP Migration

The MDS Intrepid HC MX operates in the licensed 6 to 38 GHz frequency bands and offers throughput capacity between 8 and 350 Mbps. It provides a flexible combination of native TDM and native Ethernet interfaces and supports STM-1 interfaces. The MDS Intrepid HC MX can be configured for non-protected (0+1), protected (1+1) or space diversity deployments. The rich feature set and interface support of native Ethernet and TDM provide maximum throughput with minimal latency.



Key Benefits

•  Operates in the secure FCC/ETSI licensed bands between 6 and 38 GHz
•  Provides scalable throughput options from 8 to 350 Mbps Native Ethernet and TDM implementation
•  Native Ethernet and TDM implementation provide separation of service and lowest service latency possible
•  Multiple deployment configurations maximize equipment and RF redundancy and minimize infrastructure cost


MDS Intrepid HC MX Application Advantages

MDS Intrepid HC OIP - Ethernet Bridge Radio


The MDS Intrepid HC OIP operates in the licensed 7 to 38 GHz frequency bands and offers throughput capacity of up to 350 Mbps. As an all-outdoor radio terminal, supported by an outdoor PoE unit, the MDS Intrepid HC OIP eliminates the need for rack space within shelters, cabinets, and enclosures. The radio mates directly to the back of its associated antenna, minimizing visual impact. Power to the radio is provided by the PoE unit over the same Cat5e Ethernet cable that provides data to the unit.

Key Benefits

•  Operates in the secure FCC/ETSI licensed bands between 7 and 38 GHz
•  Provides scalable throughput options of up to 350 Mbps
•  Software-configurable capacity licenses allow system capacity upgrade without the need for hardware upgrade
•  Supports SyncE and IEEE 1588 v2 synchronization to allow for critical time synchronization of equipment across the system

•  Optical fiber and electrical RJ45 gigabit Ethernet provide both interface options for GigE communications
•  Jumbo packets of up to 9600 bytes offer the highest performance in GigE environments
•  Q-in-Q, VLAN, QoS with 8 queues support the latest in VLAN requirements
•  50 ms switching for ring protection (ITU-T G.8032) minimizes data interruption and delay
