Microwave Networks is a leading manufacturer of wireless infrastructure and last-mile transmission equipment. Company designs, manufactures, installs, and services point-to-point microwave systems for traditional cellular, PCS, and private communication networks as well as emerging IP and 3G networks.
MNI is a US corporation with several worldwide locations.  Our headquarters in the Houston , Texas area (click here for driving directions) is the primary home to our Manufacturing, Engineering, Sales, and Support staff. With over 185+ employees, its 130,000+ square foot manufacturing facility is capable of producing in excess of 1,800 terminals per month.  To date, we have shipped over 150,000 terminals installed in 40 countries.  Other key office includes a Sales and Service Center in the U.K and Russia.

Proteus AMT is the newest member of Microwave Networks’ Integrated Microwave Solutions family of products. By dynamically changing the RF modulation from 4PSK to 32 QAM as required, Proteus AMT is ideal for areas where frequency spectrum is limited or for users who need expanded data capacity in existing bandwidth. The wide variety of user interfaces, including full 100 Mbps Fast Ethernet, makes Proteus AMT perfect for Cellular/PCS backhaul – especially those networks ready for the transition to 3G. The capability to mix PDH with packet data in the same radio terminal is a unique and very useful benefit for leveraging existing networks with the networks of tomorrow. As a result, this platform offers optimal flexibility and scalability to allow mobile operators the quick deployment and/or redeployment needed for generating immediate revenue.

Twice The Data
With adaptive modulation schemes up to 32 QAM the Proteus AMT can pack twice as much data into the same bandwidth compared to common 4-level modulation radios (QPSK or 4FSK). For example, Proteus AMT allows 12 E1s in 7 MHz or 32 E1s in 28 MHz. This feature is ideal for users who want to increase their data throughput without paying for more bandwidth.

Half The Bandwidth
The same adaptive modulation technology that allows a user to double his capacity can be used to transmit existing data using only half of the previous bandwidth.  In many cases the narrower bandwidth means lower licensing fees.

Full 100BaseT Fast Ethernet
Proteus AMT provides a full 100 Mbps Ethernet throughput in 28 MHz bandwidth. As the available bandwidth decreases, the Ethernet throughput is scaled to match – up to 9 Mbps in 3.5 MHz.

Unmatched Data Flexibility
The capability to mix PDH with packet data in the same radio is a unique and very useful way to leverage existing networks with the networks of tomorrow. With Proteus AMT, one basic Indoor Unit is used across all frequency bands and accepts two separate plug-in modules. Both PDH modules up to 16E1’s or E3 and an IP module with a 4-port 10/100BaseT interface are available and can be used in any combination. This flexibility allows up to 32 E1s or 100 Mbps Ethernet, or a combination of up to 16E1’s with Ethernet.

Higher System Gain
Where bandwidth efficiency is not the primary concern Proteus AMT delivers unmatched system gain. Using lower level modulation techniques and advanced Trellis Coding, overall system gain can increase 2-4 dB over conventional microwave radio systems.

Configuration and SNMP Management
The fully software controlled Proteus AMT makes initialization and maintenance simple. Link setup is as easy as selecting the TX and RX frequencies and indicating the number of E1 channels to be used. Based on this information, Proteus AMT configures both the local and far-end terminals.  Using standard SNMP-2 protocol and on-board routing, radio IP addresses can be quickly and efficiently set and controlled. A standard SNMP manager can be used from a central location to monitor and control the entire network, or the custom graphical interface can be used from any location to control any device within the network.
