Purpose-built for fixed wireless broadband, key features of the solution include:

  • 5G-NR protocol and frame structure – optimized for fixed wireless to maximize throughput and reduce complexity, but retain the ability to coexist with standards-based products
  • Multi-User MIMO – leveraging Cambium Networks’ industry-leading and field-proven cnMedusa™ Massive MU-MIMO technology that provides up to eight simultaneous data streams to CPEs
  • Beamforming – proven Cambium Networks technology to optimize performance and isolate noise
  • Automated provisioning – to streamline installation and provisioning

BTS Features

  • 24, 26 and 28 GHz bands in a single SKU
    • n257 (26.50 – 29.50 GHz), 28 GHz, TDD​
    • n258 (24.25 – 27.50 GHz), 26 GHz, TDD​
    • n261 (27.50 – 28.35 GHz), 28 GHz US, TDD​
  • TDD only
    • DL:UL supported TDD ratios are 4:3, 5:2 or 6:1​
    • Same channel for Uplink/Downlink, or​
    • Different channel for Uplink/Downlink (for easier deployment alongside FDD system)​
  • Support either V or H polarization (single SKU)
    • Polarization is configurable independently for each sector
  • Support the following channel sizes
    • 112 & 56 MHz (legacy)​
    • 100 & 50 MHz (5G allocation)​
  • Carrier aggregation
    • Support up to 2 operating channels of the same Channel BW​
    • Channels may be non-adjacent​
    • Examples:​
      • Single 112 MHz carrier, with 8×8 MIMO per carrier, or​
      • Dual 112 MHz carrier, with 4×4 MIMO per carrier
