Trusted technology partner
Filtronic is the partner of choice for leading OEMs and mobile network operators looking for bespoke, microwave and mmWave components and subsystems for network access and XHaul applications. Experts in delivering highly linear backhaul solutions, we provide key technologies at the heart of densification and disaggregation associated with 5G networks. Our products include ultra-high capacity mmWave transceivers that are deployed and field proven within some of the world’s highest performance point to point radio links.
We offer highly integrated, fully calibrated transceiver modules, such as Morpheus and Orpheus that simply drop-in between the baseband modem module and the antenna. This plug-and-play architecture eliminates the need for clients to develop in-house mmWave expertise resulting in significantly reduced time to market, lower overall development costs and minimal cost of quality.
Mobile telecommunications infrastructure (XHaul)
XHaul is a collective term that covers front, mid and backhaul representing the various connections between the edge of the network, base stations, remote radio heads and the core fibre network. XHaul is achieved through a combination of fibre and wireless links and traditionally, backhaul has employed licensed microwave bands (between 6GHz and 42GHz). However, as the data demands on networks increases, the capacity of XHaul links has had to keep up, by employing the significant extra bandwidth available within the lightly licensed mmWave bands, primarily E-band (71-76GHz / 81-86GHz).
Filtronic is an expert in 5G XHaul. We specialise in high-performance solutions at Microwave and mmWave, offering our industry-leading clients technically advanced high-frequency RF communications equipment that is essential to the development of future telecommunications infrastructure including 5G and beyond. With unrivaled mmWave know-how, Filtronic is well placed in the market to support these networks as they are developed.
We have extensive expertise in developing microwave and mmWave filters for telecoms applications. Our products include metal cavity filters, ceramic, combline, interdigital, lumped element, suspended substrate, waveguide and thin-film filters. We are experts in filter topology, offering rapid prototyping and reduced development cycles.
