MosoLabs in the US has launched the first 5G indoor radio access point for private networks and 5G Redcap using  Qualcomm’s FSM200 5G RAN chips.

The Moso Canopy 5GID2 5G small cell radio  is designed for simple indoor installations in the same way as WiFi with the industry’s first 3GPP Release 16 5G SA small cell platform to support Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things (IoT) as well as 5G Redcap.

Release 16 gives improved low latency and link reliability requirements with uRLCC to enable factory automation and mission critical control of machines and other equipment with speeds up to 4Gbit/s, 4x higher than current 5G radios.

The Enterprise-grade design includes power over Ethernet (PoE) to reduce product costs and simplify deployments as well as 5G RedCap Release 17 support to enable new use cases for enterprises, industrial IoT, and even smart cities.

“Small cells are foundational to private 5G networks as they are uniquely well-suited to meet stringent requirements for Industry 4.0 use cases, especially indoors,” said Gerardo Giaretta, vice president, Product Management at Qualcomm Technologies.

“We are very pleased with this Moso Canopy 5GID2 collaboration, leveraging the Qualcomm FSM200 5G RAN platform for small cells, and are optimistic about its ability to provide powerful performance across an expanded set of use cases.”

MosoLabs is partnering with network technology and application partners to bring solutions and use cases to market that are simple to deploy and manage and can be paired with applications out-of-the-box.

It is working with Ataya to build indoor and outdoor Chorus-powered access points for small to medium-sized installations such outdoor parking, gas stations, outdoor retail kiosks, smart agriculture farms and more. With a hybrid 5G core deployment split between the access point and cloud, this simplifies deployment with zero touch “plug-n-play” provisioning, low latency, and seamless integration with a sophisticated, cloud-managed platform.

It is also working with Ecrio on unified critical communications and data collection for warehousing and other industrial verticals for human-human and human-machine communications for everything from perimeter surveillance and worker safety, to AGVs and IoT sensors using the 5G small cell radio.

“MosoLabs is at the forefront of private 5G RAN with Qualcomm-based 3GPP release 16 small cells to power new and existing low latency, high bandwidth use cases,” said Stephen Leotis, president of MosoLabs. “In addition, we are committed to growing a network and application partner ecosystem with companies like Ataya and Ecrio. Our integrated solutions help customers quickly realize the power of private 5G and its ability to deliver immediate value and ROI for enterprises across industry verticals.”
