NEC State of the Art Technology


2048QAM solution

2048QAM Achieving in excess of 1Gbps capacity, 2048 QAM high order modulation drives the future of microwave transmission. NEC pioneered the commercial use of 2048 QAM, which requires exacting control, with now over 180,000 TRs (as of June 2017) in solid operation

2048QAM iPASOLINK Family

2048QMA iPASOLINK FAMILYiPASOLINK VR2 with 2048 QAM was released. Then full member of  2048 QAM iPASOLINK Family is ready for deployment.



iPASOLINK VR2 supports 2048 QAM, and other features such as sub-band free, IEEE 1588v2, etc., and designed for lower power consumption. Fan-less operation expands degree of freedom in installation scenes, and also reduction of OpEx is anticipated. Even more with carrier grade packet swich iPASOLINK VR2 realized 16Gbps L2 Path.

NEC's High Power ODU
