Microwave Radio System: a Breakthrough innovation in Wireless Communication realm !

by NEC India NEC is a leader in the integration of IT and netwo
Microwave communication is more about transmission of signals using radio waves that use series radio wavelengths, which are smaller in size. Microwave Radio System, on the other side, refers to equipment that is used for broadcasting and telecommunications transmissions. The microwave system also includes radios high above microwave towers that are used to transmit microwave communications using line-of-sight microwave radio technology. Because of their narrow wavelength, microwaves can be used to transmit point-to-point communication.

This is because small antennas can direct them in narrow beams that can be directed directly at the receiving antenna. It allows nearby microwave equipment to use identical frequencies without interfering. It is important that there is a clear line of sight between points-to-point communications in order to avoid interference from tall buildings or blockages.

Specialists are often needed for preliminary site surveys. Most of the vendors offer a complete range of Microwave Radio Systems for PDH or SDH networks. Besides, you can receive a host of other turnkey Microwave design and installation services, as well as complete Microwave product ranges that can transmit data, video, and audio at frequencies as high as 3.5GHz to 6GHz, 5GHz, 6GHz, 7GHz, 8GHz, 13GHz to 18GHz, 23 GHz to 26 GHz and as high as 60GHz.

How Does It Work?

The ability to transmit large amounts of information is one of the most important advantages of microwave radio communications. This is evident because they use high frequencies. Microwave radio systems can transmit information over very long distances with the aid of microwave repeaters.

The repeater receives the transmitted signal from one antenna. This will transform the signal into an electrical signal, which can then be retransmitted at its strongest strength as a microwave transmission.

The signals will be spread through the atmosphere by microwave radio communication systems. These signals will be transmitted by both receivers and transmitters. Two points are enough to transmit many data channels using microwave radio systems. It is also not dependent on any physical components like wire cables or fiber optics.

Why Should We Use Microwave Radio System?

Contrary to other types, radio systems don't need many legal and property requirements to connect to other stations. Sometimes, other types of stations require that you purchase "right-of way" to communicate with other stations.
Each station in the microwave radio system requires only a small area of land. This is because the microwave radio system is extremely powerful and does not require large towers or other structures in case of an emergency.

Because microwave radio communications operate at high frequencies, they can store large amounts of data. It is therefore the best option for companies and organizations that use a lot of systems.

Advantage

1. Able to Transmit Large Quantities of Data

Because of their high frequency, microwave radio systems can broadcast large amounts of information. Also, microwave repeaters allow for the transmission of data over very long distances. The repeater receives the transmitting signals through an antenna and converts them into an electrical signal. It then transmits it again as a full-power microwave signal. The earth's atmosphere is used to transmit signals by microwave radio communication systems.

2. Relatively Low Costs

Microwave communication systems are relatively inexpensive to construct than other types of data transmissions, such as wire-line technology. The only requirements for a microwave communication system are the use of expensive attenuation equipment or physical cables. These devices maintain signal strength while transmitting. Microwave transmission towers can be built on rooftops, mountains and hills for an affordable and easily accessible base.

Disadvantage:

1. Solid Objects

The microwave radio system cannot pass through solid objects. If you need to transmit a signal from one side of a city to the next, this can prove problematic in densely populated areas or cities that are high up. If an object blocks your signal, there are solutions. You can bounce signals off solid objects or even the ionosphere. In moon bouncing, microwaves can be bounced off the moon in an earth-moon communication known as moon bouncing.

2. Subject to Electromagnetic and Other Interference

Electromagnetic interference (EMI) can impede or degrade performance of microwave signals. The electromagnetic interference (EMI) that can be emitted by electric motors, power transmission lines, and wind turbines all have the potential to disrupt microwave communication. When placed between signal transmitters and receivers, wind turbines can scatter and diffract television, radio, and microwave signals. Rain fade is a phenomenon that can degrade microwave radio communication.
Conclusion

Microwave Radio systems can play a key role in enhancing the radio communications across areas that otherwise struggles in terms of information transmission. Yet, effective management and administration holds crucial in the entire infrastructure.
