Mimosa Networks has announced the launch of its next-generation MicroPoP architecture based on the Mimosa B24 backhaul radio and the Mimosa N5-360 quad-sector antenna, the company said.
Optimized for dense urban and suburban deployments, the expanded MicroPoP coverage will dramatically improve service providers´ return on investment by fueling new business opportunities and cutting costs by up to 50% against competitive solutions.
The new N5-360 antenna is designed to pair exclusively with the A5c access point, and incorporates quad-panel 180 degree overlapping vertical and horizontal antenna polarizations. The innovative antenna design boosts throughput by providing balanced dual-stream coverage over 360 degrees of azimuth, exploiting beamforming gain, and extends the range of MicroPoP deployments up to 60% compared with Mimosa´s A5 integrated solution. Responding to customer demand for extended frequency range, the N5-360 operates from 4.9 GHz to 6.4 GHz without compromising performance.
Mimosa Networks is the global technology provider of wireless broadband solutions, creating new competition in the industry to close the connectivity gap. Mimosa access, backhaul and client solutions enable service providers to connect dense urban and hard-to-reach rural homes at a fraction of the cost of fiber. Mimosa´s technology allows unprecedented levels of efficiency, enabling scarce spectrum to be concurrently shared across an entire network. Founded in 2012, Mimosa is VC-funded and deployed in over 155 countries worldwide.
