We have more innovation on Ethernet wireless links nowadays. The introduction of the E-band and V-Band provide more spectral capacity to build microwave links with high throughput. That is done with Ethernet and MPLS in a microwave technology. In this paper we describe the evolution, application and best opportunities to use microwave in E-band frequency for the 2G/3G/4G/5G mobile networks, for fiber backup links, enterprise networks and VIP lines. We present the air link capacity, the layer 2 throughput with and without IFG and preambule suppression. The results by simulations prove the possibility to have with one channel, an air link capacity of 986 Mbps in the E-band frequency with 99.999% annual availability for path length range 0.89 km to 1.62 km in West Africa.
