Ethernity Networks announces ENET Wireless Backhaul for FPGA-based appliances
Ethernity Networks announced it has released the ENET Wireless Backhaul solution, designed for standalone FPGA-based appliances. The solution combines up to 60Gbps of networking capacity with newly patented bonding technology for optimizing 4G and 5G network deployments.
The ENET Wireless Backhaul solution utilizes Ethernity’s ENET Flow Processor FPGA firmware coupled with Ethernity’s newly patented bonding technology to run on an FPGA appliance. The integrated bonding technology evenly distributes wireless traffic over multiple 1GbE and 10GbE ports.
It offers the ability to support fragmentation, reassembly, and reordering of packets for differential delay compensation as a means to connect wireless radio equipment.
The solution also ensures optimum wireless performance and improves transmitted throughput by dynamically distributing data along multiple wireless links of different speeds and technologies.
This enables operators to overcome interruptions or slow wireless transmission due to inclement weather, as well as to increase maximum transmission distance.
ENET Wireless Backhaul is ideal for implementing within a 4G/5G Indoor or Outdoor Unit with complete Carrier Ethernet Switch/Router functionality and the embedded bonding feature.
The ENET Wireless Backhaul solution is currently available on Ethernity’s standalone UEP-20 (Universal Edge Platform) with 10Gbps traffic spread over 10GbE and multiple 1GbE ports, as well as on commercial off-the-shelf servers using Ethernity’s ACE-NIC FPGA SmartNICs.
The solution will also run on the upcoming UEP-60 platform, which is targeted for release in Q3/2021, for bonding of 40Gbps traffic.
Oded Bergman, Ethernity VP of Products and Business Development, said, “By incorporating Ethernity’s unique bonding solution for 1G and 10G links, together with our L2/L3/MPLS ENET Flow Processor, the ENET Wireless Backhaul solution provides unmatched all-weather wireless backhaul resiliency with the highest performance over different radio technologies.”
