Mimosa Networks selected for 'fibre over the air' wireless deployment in Spain

July 13, 2017 //By Jean-Pierre Joosting
Mimosa Networks has announced that aeromax, a leading wireless internet service provider (WISP) in Spain, has selected Mimosa for its new 5G Fixed wireless service in the southeastern coastal region. Aeromax will deploy Mimosa access, backhaul, and client solutions to deliver speeds of 100 Mbps and greater for its residential and business customers.

The aeromax network provides service in more than 2,000 cities and towns in Spain’s Costa Blanca region. With increasing subscriber demand, aeromax designed its new 5G high-speed network to run in parallel with its existing network. The “aeromax f: fiber over the air” network uses Mimosa products in both GigaPoP and MicroPoP architectures. The aeromax GigaPoPs are tower deployments using Mimosa A5c connectorized access points to service subscribers over a large geography. In high-density neighborhoods, aeromax’s MicroPoP hub locations use Mimosa A5 access points connecting to Mimosa C5 client devices to serve residential subscribers. Strategically-located homeowners agree to serve as hub homes in exchange for discounted service, a strategy which enables aeromax to scale quickly and effectively. Further, aeromax will deploy Mimosa B5 backhaul radios to augment its network design.

Mimosa’s hybrid-fiber-wireless (HFW) technology significantly improves the time to market and lowers the cost to provide fiber-speed service to subscribers. Further, Mimosa’s proprietary Spectrum Reuse Synchronization (SRS) technology exploits advances in Massive MIMO and antenna beamforming to scale wireless networks with expanded capacity and bandwidth.

Symmetrical Horn Carrier Class antennas from RF elements were also deployed by aeromax together with Mimosa’s A5c connectorized access points. With a wider elevation pattern than a traditional sector antenna, the combined products are a good fit for hilly terrain, projecting signals across more homes more effectively.

“We are at a tipping point where service providers of all sizes around the world are embracing our vision of delivering fiber-fast speeds using our innovative 5G Fixed wireless solutions,” said John Colvin, Mimosa’s Senior Vice President of Global Field Operations.
