Dual–Core All-Outdoor IP/MPLS Multi-Gigabit MW Transmission at 13-38 GHz

OmniBAS™-BXd, the new generation of dual-core all-outdoor radios of the OmniBAS™ Point-to-Point MW family, addresses the operator need for advanced, cost-effective, multi-Gigabit IP transmission solutions using just one outdoor unit.

OmniBAS™-BXd features a novel design to support 2 x 112 MHz channels in a single compact unit accommodating adaptable carrier allocations with replaceable duplexers in a wide range of MW frequency bands (13 - 38 GHz). Using the appropriate OmniBAS Coupling Units (OBCU) and a broad range of integrated antennas (0.3 / 0.6 / 0.8 / 1.2 / 1.8 m), it can be flexibly configured for 1+0, 1+1, 2+0 or XPIC 2+0 link operation.

OmniBAS™-BXd offers leading modulations (4096-QAM) per channel and throughput up to 2.5 Gbit/s per unit, while employing advanced radio and traffic processing functionality to demonstrate exceptional IP MW radio performance.

OmniBAS-BXd Radio

OmniBAS™-BXd is compatible with both OmniBAS™ split-mount and OmniBAS™-BX all-outdoor units and is also manageable through the same powerful uni|MS™ platform.

OmniBAS™-BXd is ideal for both 5G MW backhaul and for a wide range of enterprise wireless connectivity applications.


  • Support of 2 x 112 MHz channels and 2.5 Gbit/s throughput from one single unit.
  • Market-leading modulation 4096-QAM (in channels up to 112 MHz).
  • Novel design with band-free base unit (13-15 GHz) and replaceable duplexers.
  • Compact unit, less space required on pole (one unit instead of two).
  • Flexible link configurations in one unit: XPIC 2+0 / RLA 2+0 / HSB 1+1.
  • Ideal for last-mile multi-Gigabit backhaul.
  • Compatible with both OmniBAS™ split-mount (IDU - ODU) and all-outdoor OmniBAS™-BX units.
  • Powerful end-to-end service & network management.
  • Part of the dual-band all-outdoor solution (with UltraLink™-GX80 radio).

Being integral part of the OmniBAS™ MW portfolio, OmniBAS™-BXd offers market-leading radio performance, excessive IP capacity and advanced traffic handling and control functionality.
