Wireless back haul connectivity – Youncta

Netshield has officially been appointed the distributor for leading Microwave Research and Production Company Youncta in the Southern Africa region. This will bring unique collaboration and communications technologies to local businesses and we believe that the Youncta product sets will enrich our existing product offerings.


Y-Packet is Youncta’s high capacity packet full-outdoor platform, designed to meet the requirements of WISP, ISP and Corporate markets alike. It has been developed with the aim of easy installation, interoperability with existing network infrastructure and integration with third party Network Management Systems in mind. The benefits of Y-Packet include:

Y-packet supports cutting edge technologies, such as XPIC jointly with layer one aggregation and adaptive modulation from QPSK to 1024QAM. It provides capacity up to 840 Mbps at 56 MHz bandwidth L2 within frequency ranges from 2 GHz to 38 GHz.

The full outdoor configuration of Y-Packet requires only 35 W of power consumption, resulting in a 26 dBm of output power. The built-in digital pre-distorter and high output power allow the usage of small antenna, which consequently reduces the rental costs of telecom towers.

The new network management system Y-NMS provides live monitoring of individual stations and the entire transport network from a remote location. Y-NMS provides a support for integrating SNMP v1/v2/v3 third party devices. Y-Packet can be managed over secure protocols such as HTTPS and SSH and users can be authenticated over RADIUS. It is also IPv6 ready.
