Terrestrial microwave is a critical tool in wireless communications. Used for cellular backhaul, machine-to-machine communications, and wireless internet connectivity, the demand for microwave links has never been greater. Users are demanding fiber optic speeds using these wireless links. Equipment manufacturers have responded with increasing throughput rates, often by increasing the size of the symbol set with some systems reaching 2048 QAM or above.
Additional significant spectral efficiency breakthroughs using techniques such as increasing the symbol set will be difficult to achieve. Astrapi’s spiral modulation offers the promise of dramatic increases in spectral efficiency as demanded by the market.
