An ultra-high-capacity turn-key solution for backhaul, fronthaul and midhaul

Standard Products, Transmit & Receive



Each module contains all the transmit and receive functions necessary for the RF section of an E-band link and provides a simple connection to a high data rate full duplex modem. The integrated diplexer connects directly to an antenna of choice via a standard WR12 interface. Internal, low phase noise VCOs are settable via an SPI interface in 31.25MHz steps to support ECC/ITU channel arrangements.

  • Proven system performance.
  • Spectrally efficient modulation.
  • 10Gbps capable, ideal for use in high-speed mobile backhaul networks for services such as LTE-Advanced and 5G.
  • Field proven technology.

Orpheus modules are designed for easy incorporation into ODUs for rapid time to market with minimal customer engineering resource.
