MINI-LINK CN is a compact and easy to install microwave transmission node built with simplicity in mind. MINI-LINK CN is optimized for end sites, single hops, and enterprise networks. There are a number of MINI-LINK CN products, MINI-LINK CN 210, MINI-LINK CN 500 and MINI-LINK CN 510, each of them specifically optimized for a certain type of site.

Ericsson’s cost efficient Enterprise & Carrier solution with compact nodes for hops and ACCESS sites

MINI-LINK CN is used in a number of different scenarios:
  • New roll-out of mobile backhaul networks; in mobile backhaul networks MINI-LINK CN is a perfect fit at the access site with MINI-LINK TN on the other side of the hop, at the aggregation site, supporting the packet network end to end.
  • Evolution of mobile backhaul networks; MINI-LINK CN supports Native ethernet as well as Native TDM and a mix of them. This enables our customers to start with TDM traffic, add ethernet when data traffic increases, and move to all ethernet when required. MINI-LINK CN can be a perfect upgrade of MINI-LINK e at end sites.
  • Fixed Broadband over Microwave; connecting Enterprises or rural areas to existing transport networks with microwave is a well proven cost efficient solution.
  • Enterprise, Broadcasting and National security customers can successfully deploy both single hops, and complete backhaul networks.



Ericsson MINI-LINK CN Series nodes

High capacity microwave

MINI-LINK CN provides up to gigabit capacity at telecom grade availability. with 1 Gbps over the hop, MINI-LINK CN supports the capacities required by LTe. our best in class radio output power provides longer hops with smaller antennas.

Handling your IP network evolution MINI-LINK CN supports any network scenario; both new packet-only networks as well as evolutions from TDM to packet. It fully supports carrier grade networks with Native ethernet and carrier-grade qoS for ethernet, IP as well as MPLS and sync distribution in packet networks.

MINI-LINK CN also provides Layer 1 sync distribution to your existing network and introduces no extra delay or delay variation. MINI-LINK CN is a complete solution for the evolution of your network.

The Hybrid radio Link transports both Native ethernet and Native PDH simultaneously over the same hop, which is perfect for a cost-effective TDM to packet migration. Start with all e1s or a mix with ethernet. Add more ethernet as data traffic increases and complete the migration by moving to all-ethernet.

MINI-LINK CN is Hop compatible with MINI-LINK TN & MINI-LINK PT 2010

Saves cost
MINI-LINK CN is a Cost Saver; it is compact and easy to install. The all-outdoor solution speeds up and facilitates roll out even further with no need for a site building.

Existing MINI-LINK customers can save time, money, space and reduce upgrade risks by reuse of the installed base.

Introduce Native ethernet at end nodes by replacing MINI-LINK E with the space optimized MINI-LINK CN, without replacing the actual outdoor units, nor the cabling to the outdoor units.

The market leading reliability of MINI-LINK includes a field proven MTBF of typical over 70         
MINI-LINK CN Radio Unit (RAU2 X) years.

Network Synchronization
MINI-LINK CN 500 supports transport of synchronization signal across the hop.
The synchronization signal is carried over the radio hop without occupying any bandwidth allocated for payload traffic
regarding delay performance, delay per link for Priority traffic is <0.8 ms for radio link (TDM and Packet) capacities below 50 Mbit/ s and <0.5 ms for radio link capacities above 50 Mbps. Delay variation for priority traffic is <0.5 ms per link.

Hybrid Radio Link
Native ethernet and Native PDH are supported over the microwave radio link. The maximum net rate over one radio is up to 400 Mbps per radio.
