Mimosa Networks has launched its MicroPoP architecture based onthe Mimosa B24 backhaul radio and the Mimosa N5-360 quad-sector antenna. Optimized for dense urban and suburban deployments, the expanded MicroPoP coverage will improve service providers’ return on investment by fueling new business opportunities and cutting costs.
Mimosa’s enhanced MicroPoP architecture enables service providers to offer end users higher bandwidth wireless connections of between 200 Mbps and 300 Mbps, simply by getting closer to their customers.
The Mimosa-designed MicroPoP architecture solves this issue by allowing service providers to deploy access points closer to subscribers, on utility poles, street lights, and hub home locations. The introduction of the B24 backhaul overcomes the lack of deep fiber into a neighborhood, and the new N5-360 antenna nearly doubles the coverage of the Mimosa A5c access point.
According to Mimosa’s CTO, Jaime Fink, “With such a competitively-priced high-bandwidth solution, fixed wireless broadband providers can finally dare to compete with the incumbent wireline providers, and make money doing so. Properly architected, a service provider deploying the new MicroPoP in an urban or suburban area can expect a return on investment in as little as six months, which is a game changer for scaling these types of deployments. Wireless service providers are no longer limited to the edges of the revenue-rich suburban neighborhoods where cable and DSL have typically dominated the landscape.”
The B24 can be deployed alone as a point-to-point link or provide transport for a larger multipoint network within a self-healing ring.
