MaxLinear Modem Fuels Backhaul Connectivity

MaxLinear, Inc. (NYSE: MXL), a provider of radio frequency (RF), analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits for the connected home, wired and wireless infrastructure, and industrial and multimarket applications, has announced the MxL85110 baseband system on-chip (SoC) is being deployed in the Siklu EtherHaul product family, the company said.

With its exceptional millimeter band (V-Band and E-Band) throughput of up to 20Gbps, the MxL85110 provides a flexible solution that meets the evolving demands for 5G backhaul networks, supporting both all outdoor unit (AODU) and pure IP transport implementations for 5G cellular networks.

Siklu´s EtherHaul products are part of the industry´s most comprehensive portfolio of V-Band (60GHz), E-Band (70/80GHz), point-to-point, and point-to-multipoint solutions on the market. Siklu, with more than 100,000 mmWave units sold and more than 250 Smart City deployments, is recognized as a mmWave vendor in the rapidly growing Gigabit Wireless sector. In combination with Siklu´s ExtendMM™ feature, throughputs of 10Gbps full duplex on mmWave links up to 10km can be supported. This is a capacity and distance combination attractive for 5G deployments.

The MxL85110 includes a complete processing chain, from the various user IP interface technologies to analog baseband signals. The MxL85110 supports large channel-spacing spans of between 50MHz and 2GHz, modulation rates from binary phase-shift keying (BPSK) to 1024 QAM, and high spectral efficiency supporting multiple-input and multiple-out (MIMO) transceivers and cross pole interference cancellation (XPIC).
