µFalcon-ST

Mobile backhaul and access over converged, high-speed infrastructure (FMC) in one device

The µFalcon-ST (micro Falcon-ST) is designed for growing complexity and number of scenarios of mobile networks backhauling. With comprehensive support for circuit emulation services, coupled with advanced timing features, the µFalcon-ST provides the ultimate edge solution for 2G through LTE base stations and smooth migration between these technologies.
