MIKROLINK’s engineering teams have evaluated and incorporated a variety of technologies and solutions into their transport designs and each engagement ultimately endeavored to significantly reduce OPEX while maintaining or even improving network performance and reliability. In many cases, MIKROLINK’s transpmission services have also helped to defer CAPEX investments through optimization offering improved efficiencies in equipment utilization and provisioning processes.
Backhaul solutions consist of a range of technologies that must be engaged to implement a cost effective solution including fiber, microwave, leased lines, WiMAX and IP/Ethernet. MIKROLINK has extensive experience in designing and optimizing backhaul networks for operators utilizing the best technology to implement a solution that addresses the Operators’ key performance demand such as high availability, low latency. MIKROLINK has best O&M capabilities that can be used to monitor and correct performance.
Transport and Core Network Engineering Services
MIKROLINK is always engineering for the network requirements of tomorrow. As 5G and 4G progresses and the demands for backhaul continue, MIKROLINK and its team of engineers are at the ready with bridging or backhaul solutions. Our team of experts offers the following transport and core services:
Our transport design services include, traffic analysis, least cost routing, competitive fiber study, alternative technology analysis and database updating.
Our microwave design services include, preliminary analysis, site and path surveys, final path engineering/link design and frequency selection/FCC licensing.
Outside Plant (OSP) Network Design has been expanded to a new horizon to be able to provide FTTx services (including FTTC-fiber to the cell, FTTB fiber to the building, etc). MIKROLINK is aware of the fact that although the main idea is the same, one solution does not fit all circumstances. The key is to be able to provide customizable methods with respect to: business models (budgets etc.); Project and Construction management; local legal conditions (e.g. right of way, permits etc.); local geographical conditions; type of construction (trenching, aerial spans); equipment selection.
Core Network Services
Today’s LTE Networks take advantage of IP centric architectures and platforms. MIKROLINK offers support for IP operations and management, as well as network migrations to IP infrastructure, covering all of the technology
Network Optimization Services
Many carriers have rapidly expanded their networks in response to customer demand and service growth without applying optimal transport design practices. MIKROLINK offers market or regional analyses to identify and measure opportunities for network optimization. This service includes: Least cost routing analysis; Dark fiber study; Alternative technology analysis.
Network Inventory Services
With constant network growth and particularly the convergence of disparate networks, carriers often do not have accurate inventories of network assets.
MicroWave Fixed Network Engineering Services
As a pillar of our end-to-end Transport Engineering practice area, MIKROLINK brings field proven experience in providing Turnkey Microwave Services. MIKROLINK provides end-to-end microwave engineering services for individual links and for entire markets. Through its extensive experience, MIKROLINK has established standard processes that cover the various stages of the link engineering and deployment engagement.
MIKROLINK will evaluate interconnectivity objectives, capacity requirements, geographical constraints, and reliability criteria to determine frequency range selection and develop a preliminary architecture design.
Site and Path Surveys
MIKROLINK will use established processes and forms to evaluate site parameters that impact equipment placement, link budget calculations, construction requirements, tower space availability, and site security. MIKROLINK will also prepare a path profile and walk each prospective propagation path to determine link clearance and identify critical points of interest that may affect the link design.
Final Path Engineering and Link Design
MIKROLINK will evaluate the findings from the field surveys and compile a final link budget and design package that specifies the frequency channel, design parameters, and Bill of Materials (BOM), among other things.
Installation and Commissioning
MIKROLINK will install the antennas, cabling, and radio system and perform standard commissioning and testing procedures before handing over a complete and active link to the client.
