  SAN DIEGO, CA, Feb 23 (Marketwire) -- 
E-Band Communications, manufacturer of the world's highest performance 80
GHz backhaul solutions for 4G/LTE networks, has launched production of a
next-generation small cell backhaul wireless system, E-Link Mini. This
new low-cost system positions E-Band as one of the first in the industry
to offer a commercial millimeter-wave ultra-high capacity backhaul radio
for small cells in the exploding LTE market.

    The E-Link Mini integrates highly efficient adaptive modulation and
coding and provides the highest system gain small-cell backhaul radio
operating in the 71-86 GHz band. The E-Link Mini uses a single 250 MHz
channel to deliver 1,000Mbps capacity. The E-Link Mini incorporates the
latest innovations in radio, antenna, and switching technologies into a
very small package optimized for mobile/LTE small-cell backhaul.

    "The new features propel the E-Link Mini into a leading position in
performance, range, and link availability," said Saul Umbrasas, head of
Sales & Marketing of E-Band. "This achievement is the result of many
years of experience by E-Band's team designing industry-leading
millimeter-wave systems."

    The explosive demand for mobile broadband is forcing the industry toward
high-capacity 4G/LTE networks, and small cells have become a critical
component of the digital consumption landscape as mobile operators strive
to deliver high-quality consumer experiences. E-Band's innovative E-Link
Mini is ideal for wireless carriers seeking to boost their capacity and
competitive edge.

    "The unveiling of our new small-cell radio provides the operator with a
complete E-band solution for carrier backhaul networks. From the
ultra-low latency E-Link 1000Q, to the transport and macro-cell backhaul
radio, E-Link Eagle, that is software configurable from 100Mbps to
3,000Mbps, and now to the edge of the network with a low-cost and small
footprint radio the E-Link Mini," said Umbrasas.

    E-Band Communication representatives will be showcasing the E-Link Mini
at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona February 25-28, 2013.
