How to Upgrade your Infinet Radio Links
Why upgrade your Infinet Radio link?
Infinet have announced to partners that due to the geopolitical issue between Russia and Ukraine that Infinet exports will cease and concentrate on the domestic market only, therefore cannot supply overseas customers for their entire range of radio links. It’s always sad to see a long established vendor exit global markets, and this move means many radio link users will have to look for alternatives.
Many users own radio links which are older and sometimes problematic. Often, users require higher reliability, uptime, capacity or distance than their older radio links can provide.
The Need for Reliability and High Availability
Modern IP networks demand higher capacity and uptime, and as radio links are installed outdoors often in harsh conditions where they age faster than indoor mounted IT equipment such as switches and routers, which are installed in nice airconditioned environments. Modern Carrier Class wireless equipment is designed for all-outdoor use including harsh environments and can ensure ultra-high availability and reliability in practical use.
Alternatives to Infinet and 5GHz radios
There are many alternatives available including Carrier Class radio from other vendors, radio links with 10Gbps+ capacity, Microwave links and MMW radio. These have different characteristics, capabilities and price points. Modern links can offer up to 40Gbps capacity and for low-end solutions, MIMO radios at lower price points than high cost MIMO radio for sites where budgets are tight.
If the customer requires a direct replacement radio link, there are some trusted MIMO radio vendors currently available with reliable shipping products.
