The universal outdoor radio combining ultra-small size and weight with low power consumption
The Aviat ODU 600 is a next generation, universal Outdoor Unit (ODU) for split-mount applications, incorporating latest ASIC technology to combine ultra-small size and weight with smooth evolution to ultra-high capacity.
Balancing high RF performance in a compact and convenient form factor, the ODU 600 enables network operators to deploy packet transport in a split-mount architecture, with or without TDM services.
ODU 600 is the industry’s first universal radio with Flexible Power Mode (FPM), providing software defined base or high power modes of operation in a single platform. This unique scalability allows operators to pay for the power they need when they need it, improving product lifecycle costs that cannot be achieved by using discrete fixed-power mode ODUs.
ODU 600 is a high-capacity ODU that meets the capacity demands of the future in a compact footprint. Its integrated handle enables low profile installation and lower shipping costs. Total throughput over 1 Gbps is possible using a single unit, supported by modulations up to 4096QAM, and extra-wide channels up to 112MHz (supported on CTR only).
ODU 600 can be used with Aviat Eclipse and current CTR indoor platforms, and is fully backward compatible with previously deployed Eclipse and CTR indoor units (minimum software version required). It can also be fitted to existing ODU 600 (v1) antennas (with adapter kit), and is over-the-air interoperable with ODU 600v1 – please contact your Aviat representative for details.
ODU 600 offers greater flexibility, simplified management, with 70% reduction in the number of product variants through enhanced tuning range, for simplified sparing, and lower shipping and installation costs.
With the highest system gain in its class across frequency bands from 5-42 GHz, ODU 600 enables high performance operation at higher modulations and supports unique Flexible Power Mode (FPM) capability, while minimizing antenna size, tower loading, and related costs.
ODU 600 can be deployed in 1+0 unprotected, 1+1 MHSB (Monitored Hot Standby), 1+1 SD (Space Diversity), and 2+0 (with or without XPIC) configurations
In a split-mount configuration, digital signal processing and data connection interfaces are supported by a compact indoor unit located inside the equipment room, shelter, or cabinet at the base of the tower, connected to a radio unit installed behind or adjacent to the antenna. The indoor and outdoor equipment are connected by a simple coax cable, eliminating the cost and complexity of traditional waveguide installations.
This configuration is often preferred where there is insufficient space to deploy all-indoor equipment, or to perform maintenance without a tower climb.
