Nera Networks’ new Evolution Series represents a breakthrough in microwave radio technology. One hardware platform provides numerous benefits to customers including effortless scalability (capacity increase as well as migration to IP), reduced investments and operational costs.


Evolution Series

The Evolution Series is a point-to-point microwave radio system in licensed frequency bands from 5 GHz to 38 GHz. Transmission capacity scales from 6 Mb/s to 1500 Mb/s based on a common software defined platform.

Current Products

  • Evolution IP

    Evolution IP is an Ethernet/IP access network solution ideally suited for backhaul of WiMAX and other last mile technologies, and for building professional enterprise networks. The beauty of the Evolution Series IP system is its scalability, with a clearly defined upgrade path to GigE with 600 Mb/s links.

    • 1xFE standard, 4xFE and 1xGbE option
    • Scalable 100, 150, 300 & 600 Mb/s link capacity
    • LCAS support for 300 and 600 Mb/s links
    • Unprotected or Protected radio (low cost un-licensed systems does not offer protected radio)
    • Ethernet QoS support – securing revenue generation services
    • Transparent 100Mb/s, future proof upgrade path to 300Mb/s and 600 Mb/s by adding modules
    • Frequency reuse CCDP with XPIC (X-Polar Interference Canceller)


  • Evolution XPAND

    Delivers advanced high-density PDH/Ethernet access networks. The XPAND version of the Evolution Series offers flexibility and scalability with simple upgrades. Capacity upgrade and transition to IP can be handled without the need for replacing equipment. Simply upgrading the software license can increase network capacity.
