Pursuant to the agreement, FiberTower, the largest investor in PHAZR, will participate in the initial round of funding along with iTimeFund and other investors.

“The FiberTower investment will help PHAZR accelerate the deployment of their 5G technology for a Gigabit per second mobile and fixed access system utilizing mmWave bands between 24 GHz and 39 GHz,” said Pulin Patel, PHAZR Board member from iTimeFund.

In conjunction with its investment in PHAZR, FiberTower will also create a Technology Advisory Committee to its Board of Directors led by PHAZR CEO Farooq Khan.

When available in 2017, PHAZR’s 5G millimeter wave system will be the industry’s first integrated, high-power, commercial, 5G millimeter wave antennas array.  At peak rates the system is expected to deliver 16 Gbps throughput per cell over a 200 MHz channel block, which will be an industry-first for these exclusively-licensed bands. Prototype equipment is expected to be available in 4Q 2016.
