ST Engineering iDirect Supplies Mx-DMA MRC Technology for Axess Networks Backhaul Project
Axess Networks rolled out ST Engineering iDirect’s Mx-DMA MRC technology to support cellular backhaul networks in Colombia, and plans to expand the deployment in Colombia, Peru, Ecuador, Mexico and Chile.
ST Engineering iDirect announced Oct. 4 that initial rollout took place in Colombia, and longtime customer Axess migrated its first four MNO networks to Mx-DMA MRC. The company now plans to expand its solutions to operate corporate and cellular backhaul networks in Colombia, Peru, Ecuador, Mexico and Chile with Mx-DMA MRC technology. This will bring the total to seven high-capacity networks on the return technology and more than 2 Gbps.
Mx-DMA MRC is a patented multi-access waveform that incorporates MF-TDMA and SCPC into a single return technology. Germán Pérez, director of Product and Business Development at Axess said the technology helped Axess improve the scale and versatility of its network design and reach new backhaul markets.
“Since deploying MRC, we have noted that our cellular backhaul solutions achieve high efficiency, operating more than 3 bits/Hz in download in both forward and return, with the most powerful return link for organizations that seek to find greater bandwidth for their clients using small terminals,” Pérez said. “We use the benefits of acceleration for mobile solutions or GTP that operates very powerfully over MRC. The net result is an end user experience that rivals that of terrestrial connectivity.”
