Filtronic Broadband’s E-band transceiver module Orpheus enables data rates up to 10Gbps



Following recent advancements in high capacity modem technology, several customers have now successfully demonstrated wireless data rates up to 10Gbps at 128QAM by employing the Filtronic Broadband highly integrated E-band transceiver module “Orpheus”.

This showcases the versatility of Orpheus, confirming its suitability for deployment across many application areas including mobile backhaul, fronthaul for C-RAN architecture, fibre extension and fibre replacement for enterprise and security networks, Gigabit City roll-outs as well as numerous emerging 5G applications demanding high capacity solutions.

Based at their mmWave centre of excellence at NETPark, Sedgefield, in the North East of England, Filtronic Broadband designs and manufactures high-performance microwave and mmWave products employing precision, automated chip and wire manufacturing processes. Novel constructional methods eliminate the performance degradation which arises when mmWave devices are packaged, whilst minimising cost by employing high levels of automation and integration, enabling pre-calibrated modules to simply “drop-in” between a modem and an antenna, without the need for customer investment in the very high capital expenditure equipment associated with E-band. Orpheus modules commenced production in Q4 2015 following a robust qualification phase and are field proven with deployments across multiple countries and several thousand units now shipped. Since commencing mmWave module manufacture in late 2011, Filtronic Broadband has now shipped >24,000 units – the world’s leading independent supplier of mmWave modules.
