Comcast, the leading Cable Operator in the US, recently installed and is now operating a high capacity microwave IP link connecting the towns of Vacaville and Rio Vista in California.
The high-performance IP Links carry traffic at a rate of 750 Mbps each way (1,500 Mbps aggregate). The link was installed by Comcast with Cable AML assistance and has been operating with high reliability and availability since the commissioning.
The link normally operates with 256QAM modulation in 2 X 56 MHz channels within the 18GHz licensed band. It replaces an older 18 GHz link with lower capacity. The radios are software-configurable and can be upgraded to higher data rates by activating software keys.
According to Russ Hagerla of Comcast, “the link is performing very well and have fulfilled our high expectations. We are very pleased with the support and assistance provided by Cable AML every step of the way.”
