Please Make AF-11FX-HD

We are getting closer to needing more bandwidth on our 11ghz links. Unfotunately the AF-11FX will not provide suffcient bandwidth at 800mbps (x2) @11x FDD. If it were possible to open up 80MHz wide channels, they would get us by, but from what I understand it is not. Running the numbers, if LTU was built into a FDD form factor supporting 11ghz, we should be able to see throughput of roughly 1.1+ gbps (x2) on 80MHz wide channels @ 4096 QAM.

I know there have been posts about this in the past (I couldn't find them in the search) and it was stated that the AF-11FX was still a newer product, so don't expect anything anytime soon. Quite some time has passed now, and demand for bandwidth has only increased!

If they made a radio that could use full 80 mhz channels it would easily do 1 gbps full duplex even without the updated LTU hardware and higher modulations.

I will buy the HD version of this equipment and swap out all of the AF11FX the moment it is released....
