MaxLinear' new modem SoC for high capacity less costing backhaul n/ws

Date: 06/07/2022
MaxLinear in collaboration with Aviat Networks developed new MODEM SoC within its MxL852xx product line for wireless transport networks. These chips enable network OEMs and operators install high capacity longer distance and low total cost of ownership (TCO) communication. MaxLinear says its MxL852xx is a novel SoC designed to support the full functionality of legacy requirements while at the same time delivering next-generation features to increase spectrum efficiency and wider channel bandwidths to drive more capacity with lower CAPEX and OPEX.

"Wireless transport is expected to account for 65% of global backhaul links from 2021 to 2027 (GSMA/ABI, 2021), while the cumulative revenues for the wireless transmission market over the five years from 2022 to 2026 are expected to grow to $17.2B., including the millimeter wave transport market which is estimated to grow at 27% CAGR over the same five year period" shares Maxlinear in its release, the findings from Dell’Oro Group.

The increased deployment of 5G radio networks deployments creating demand for backhaul networks.
“The MxL852xx combines MODEM, quality of Service (QoS), and other functionality into a single chip for all products across all frequency bands,” said Gary Croke, Vice President of Marketing for Aviat Networks. “This will allow Aviat to create more integrated microwave, millimeter-wave, and multi-band solutions that increase capacity and lower TCO for wireless transport while simplifying the supply chain and operational complexities. As an industry leader and innovator, we are excited about the complete solution we will be able to offer customers by combining Aviat’s software leadership with this next-generation chip.”

"The challenge we face is to balance the need to preserve all existing legacy requirements with the new, dramatic shift towards higher capacity and multi-band transport for wireless backhaul and fronthaul applications,” said Brendan Walsh, Vice President of MaxLinear’s Wireless Infrastructure Group. “We achieved this balance through an innovative architecture well-suited to support Aviat’s next-generation product features and TCO goals.”

The MxL852xx features include::

Multicore MODEM implementation supporting millimeter and microwave transmission
Multi-band operation support enabling more extended reach, higher throughput greater link availability
Enhanced IP traffic management
