LigoPTP PRO introduction


LigoWave unleashes its highest capacity, license-free PTP device with the release of the LigoPTP PRO series product line. Making use of ground breaking 2x2 MiMo technology, the LigoPTP 5-23/5-N PRO delivers real aggregate throughput capability of up to 220 Mbps (110 Mbps full-duplex) combined with high packets-per-second performance.

Additionally, the new product is compatible with previous LigoPTP 5-23 MiMo and LigoPTP 5-N MiMo models. This product enables carrier-class point-to-point capability, ideal for dedicated access or backhaul applications (including VOIP or other small packet applications). The Ligo PTP PRO product family couples flexible channel width capability (20 or 40 MHz) and industry-leading proprietary software mechanisms to set the utmost standard in spectral efficiency.

The LigoPTP 5-23/5-N PRO products feature either an integrated dual-polarized antenna or two N-type connectors. They are housed in rugged, cast aluminum enclosures. Combining digital signal processing, dual polarization antennas and proprietary W-Jet 2 MiMo protocol these bridges have a high spectral efficiency of 7.5bit/Hz.

The LigoPTP 5-23/5-N PRO showcase an array of advanced software mechanisms that provide optimal point-to-point connectivity for high-throughput, long distance links.

LigoWave’s proprietary PTP mechanisms utilize techniques such as Dynamic Time Division Duplexing (TDD) to dynamically allocate bandwidth in the direction needed, thus increasing link efficiency and greatly decreasing the impact that distance has on throughput of the link.

The LigoWave point-to-point products also features selective repeat ARQ technology, an enhanced error-correction software mechanism that optimizes data traffic to provide very high throughput over high-bandwidth, long-range links even in the presence of interference.

The new PRO series products have an extremely powerful integrated 28 dB (+/-2 dBi) radio which allows building solid long-distance links even with an integrated antenna. The output power on highest modulation (MCS 15) is 23 dBi (+/- 2 dBi) which is hard to find elsewhere in the market today.

Gigabit Ethernet port and 802.3 af standard support makes the PRO series product line even more flexible. Im-provements on the SURGE and ESD protection side make this product ideal for mission critical and harsh-weather condition installations. SURGE and ESD protection was designed according to IEC 61000-4-2 (ESD) and IEC 61000-4-5 (SURGE) standards.

The LigoPTP 5-23/5-N PRO is also compatible with LigoWave’s online link calculator and WNMS, a centralized configuration, firmware, and statistics server offered by LigoWave for remote diagnostic and configuration.

Why ligo?

2x2 MiMo technology based equipment is used for high-performance reliable Point-to-Point links. A combination of multiple input and multiple output technology and dual-polarization antenna's muliply the throughput linearly and allow us to deliver the connectivity for high bandwidth hungry broadband users.
IP67 standards conformant enclosure and carrier grade components tested under extreme weather conditions are used to build LigoWave equipment. Years of experience and customer feedback allows us to create a weatherproof design that is resistable to heavy rain, extremely hot and cold weather temperatures and other surprises that can make these days.
220 Mbps of real throughput is ideal for large capacity applications. W-jet is Ligowave‘s proprietary wireless protocol that combines special techniques to achieve great performance and reliability even over long distances. The W-jet protocol is the result of years of development and gives Ligowave PTP products the ability to outperform other products on the market while simultaneously optimizing ROI for the customer.
LigoWave PTP equipment allows to establish connectivity even between very distant locations. This makes LigoPTP equipment suitable for rural connectivity where terrain is rough and power supply is very limited.  Enormous potential available in rural areas should not be wasted and rapid return on investment using LigoWave solutions can be easily used by Internet service providers for quick expansion and use of the potential that is available in these areas.
High spectral efficiency is typical for LigoPTP equipment.  Combining digital signal processing, dual polarization antennas and proprietary W-Jet protocol these bridges have a high spectral efficiency of 2.7 bit/Hz.
OLED screen is installed in all the LigoPTP series radios. Using external OLED screen users can easily align the link, perform a link test with different packet sizes just after the deployment, find out various statistics about the link (wireless, ethernet, device status etc.), reset to defaults or reboot the device and even lock the equipment to avoid unvelcome impact.
LigoWave‘s link calculator is a link planning tool available online at http://www.ligowave.com/linkcalc/. The link calculator allows LigoPTP users to calculate link performance expectations taking into account geographical information, distance between the units, antenna height and gain, transmit power, and other factors in order to choose the most suitable product available from Ligowave‘s extensive product portfolio.
