The MicroPoP architecture combines the new A5 access point and the C5 client device using cutting-edge multipoint technology to deliver massive geo-capacity quickly, reliably and economically – directly addressing the ‘last mile’ challenges of service delivery in these areas.

Mimosa MicroPoP technology can be used by new wireless internet service providers to rapidly bring their services to market and compete with existing broadband providers in urban and suburban locations. Equally, incumbent service providers can add the technology to their arsenal of products, to enable them to more rapidly and economically connect underserved areas.

“Until now there hasn’t been a broadband solution that can be rapidly and cost-effectively deployed in urban densities, and provide the high level of performance required to deliver next-generation internet applications,” said Jaime Fink, Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer at Mimosa. “The Mimosa MircoPoP architecture offers a unique opportunity for service providers of all sizes to reduce CAPEX and deliver a scalable, high-performance broadband network. They no longer have to dig trenches and try to bring cables underground, and can achieve the same speeds as fibre for a fraction of the cost.”

The core of Mimosa’s MicroPoP solution, the Mimosa A5 access point, with quad-sector antennas and massive MIMO technology, delivers industry-leading performance for high density short-range multipoint broadband applications. Deployed in a central point within a neighborhood, it elegantly provides wireless broadband connections to subscribers within 500 meters. It features GPS sync-enabled time division multiple access (TDMA) protocol, which ensures each client device precisely receives and transmits under the timing control of the access point, and eliminates the possibility of interference from neighboring A5 access points.

The compact form-factor of the A5 makes suburban or urban installations fast, easy and discreet, ideal for deployment on rooftops or street-level furniture. With more than 1 Gbps of aggregate capacity, the A5 is the industry’s fastest multipoint access point purpose-built for high density deployments.

The Mimosa C5 endpoint client device delivers superfast broadband directly into homes and businesses. It is Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO) capable, meaning that multiple clients on the same access point can be coordinated to simultaneously share spectrum, improving scaling and spectral efficiency. The C5 also features GPS sync-enabled TDMA protocol, which ensures that each client device precisely receives and transmits under the timing control of the access point. With protection from harsh environment and a wider-range of mounting options, it is suitable for any for any deployment situation.
