RDL-5000 System

The RDL-5000 is a microwave system with an integrated gigabit Ethernet switch that provides the highest point-to-point (PTP) pure packet capacity and longest range in its class. Operating in the 6 GHz to 38 GHz licensed bands, the all-outdoor RDL-5000 delivers a throughput of up to 800 Mbps, or 400 Mbps in full-duplex mode, without compression making it ideal for next generation 3G and 4G / LTE network backhaul. Thus, it maintains complete transparency for all your IP-based applications. Telecom service providers, local and state governments, private enterprises and oil and gas companies throughout the world are realizing the value of the RDL-5000’s pure packet microwave technology to support advanced applications such as a transparent local area network (LAN), voice-over-Internet protocol (VoIP), high-resolution video, Multi Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) and Metro Ethernet services.



This lightweight system is available in a high power version that boasts 27 dBm of output power and as a standard version with 19 dBm of power. It covers the 6 / 7 / 8 / 10 / 11 / 13 / 15 / 18 / 23 / 26 / 38 GHz bands with channel bandwidths from 20 MHz to 56 MHz, conforming to both American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) specifications. The RDL-5000’s high power and better sensitivity allow you to use smaller antennas. Its high capacity results in fewer links. The RDL-5000’s superior performance generates significant CAPEX and OPEX savings.

The integrated 2-port gigabit switch is the most powerful and versatile available in any wireless system. Electrical (RJ-45 connector) and optical data (SM or MM) interfaces are standard on the RDL-5000 unit, providing complete site-specific flexibility. The switch supports standard redundancy, ring and mesh topologies, and link aggregation for 1.6 Gbps total throughput. The unit also supports virtual LAN (VLAN), eight-level quality of service (QoS), Q-in-Q, spanning tree, and jumbo frames, thus providing total deployment flexibility. The switch operates with half the latency and four times the packet processing speed (PPS) of other solutions, ensuring all your IP applications work seamlessly over wireless.

With a “green” power consumption of 35 watts and high reliability, the high capacity RDL-5000 provides the ultimate in licensed band PTP connectivity for pure packet networks.

The numbers behind the RDL-5000 tell the story: higher power and better sensitivity at every modulation; greater capacity and lower latency at any frequency; more switching functionality without added latency—all of this with the lowest power and the industry’s lightest all-outdoor microwave packet system. Once again, Redline delivers a wireless system to use when everything else falls short.
