xWave 400G for 5G Transport xWave 400G HFR Networks engineered xWave to empower operators with valuable performance advantages, and cost control for capacity deployments and upgrades scaled over time. Powered by the M6424 platform, xWave solutions enable multichannel WDM capabilities over existing fiber. xWave delivers a high performance, cost-effective alternative to laying additional fiber infrastructure combined with the flexibility to scale capacity in increments of 100G as needed.


HFR Networks’ flexiHaul xWave solution addresses an operator’s need for a flexible, cost-effective xHaul transport solution.

The solution scales in 100G increments up to 400G - over a single fiber.

This enables operators to pay ONLY for the capacity they need at the specific time in which they need it. It empowers operators with the flexibility to add the exact amount of capacity required if/when the need arises.

When considering an operator’s entire population of base stations, HFR Networks’ flexiHaul xWave solution will save upfront CAPEX and significant ongoing operational costs associated with the deployment and operation of unneeded capacity that may go unused for years.
