HCL Technologies launches flexible multi-band mobile backhaul solution enabled by xilinx
27th Feb 2019

HCL Technologies has launched new fully configurable, high-throughput mobile backhaul Multi-Band Modem, supporting multiple RF channel transmissions at frequency ranges up to E-Band, jointly developed with Xilinx and powered by the Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ RFSoC platform.

The solution targets 5G mobile backhaul in the mmWave and microwave frequency range bonded through a single physical link, to improve capacity and reliability. Such links essentially operate like an extended adaptive coding and modulation (ACM) solution and will enable telecom CEMs to meet the stringent requirements of next-generation networks.

The company’s solutions provide a range of benefits, including keeping/extending the ‘ACM QoS setup’ mindset, providing more reliability than a stand-alone E-band link, and allowing more capacity than the lower frequency channel operating independently. Together, the HCL and Xilinx integrated solution will provide a highly configurable backhaul modem on an advanced l6nm FinFET+ technology node that will result in an overall reduction in bill-of-material (BOM) costs and a significant reduction in power dissipation compared to current solutions.

HCL Technologies is a leading global IT services company that helps global enterprises re- imagine and transform their businesses through digital technology transformation.
