CAMPBELL, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 10, 2013) -  Exalt Communications, Inc., the leading innovator of next-generation packet microwave backhaul systems, today announced the 2nd generation of its ExtendAir family of systems, ExtendAir G2, ideal for both short-haul and medium-range applications. With list prices starting at under US$6,000 per link, these Gigabit Ethernet, zero-footprint systems offer the lowest cost per-bit of any radio system in their class in frequency bands from 6 to 42 GHz, and slash sparing and deployment costs for mobile network operators, WISPs, and enterprises worldwide.

"Exalt has certainly remained steady in its quest to offer more varied options in microwave than any other supplier," said Richard Webb, directing analyst, microwave and carrier Wi-Fi, Infonetics Research. "These new ExtendAir G2 systems significantly drive down the cost of microwave technology to meet most applications and make microwave an even more attractive alternative to fiber and leased lines."

Designed for easy tower or rooftop installation using 802.3at standard PoE, ExtendAir G2 systems can scale up to 370 Mbps full duplex as network requirements change. All ExtendAir G2 systems feature errorless adaptive modulation; a GigE switch supporting QoS, VLAN, and jumbo frames; remote management; and high security with FIPS-compliant 128-bit and 256-bit AES encryption. ExtendAir G2 systems also include Exalt's innovative field-replaceable diplexers, yielding simplified inventory and spares holdings for resellers and end users.

"ExtendAir G2 systems break new ground in microwave backhaul, delivering three times the capacity of our first generation ExtendAir systems, requiring less power, and supporting advanced Ethernet switching," said Joe Schraml, Exalt vice president of product management. "These advantages, along with ease of deployment and single unit sparing that reduces the cost of spares up to 90%, make ExtendAir G2 systems unmatched in the industry for performance, scalability, and total cost of ownership."

With the introduction of ExtendAir G2, Exalt strengthens its leadership in delivering world-class microwave radio technology and reinforces its corporate strategy to create a one-stop-shop for every wireless backhaul application. Recognizing that configuration, capacity, frequency, and total cost of ownership each play a significant role in matching the right radio to the backhaul application, only Exalt provides systems in indoor, outdoor, and split-mount configurations, all manufactured in the US; offers capacities from 10 Mbps to 6+ Gbps; supports licensed and license-free frequency bands from 2 to 42 GHz; and delivers the lowest cost per-bit of any manufacturer.
