MIMO Link 2x2 Family

MIMO Link 2x2 Family

The MIMO Link 2×2 range of solutions comprises of a number of high-performance Fixed Broadband Wireless Access (FBWA) units, which operate in both LOS (line-of-sight) and NLOS (non-line-of-sight) environments, in both licensed and unlicensed frequency bands. Featuring highest performing hardware and operating system coupled with most innovative radio technology providing with best sensitivity, increased output power across all modulations and wide dynamic range, MIMO Link 2×2 represents a perfectly balanced solution for any type of Point-to-Point connectivity. The MIMO Link 2×2 is a wireless Point-to-Point solution, which combines high-speed capability, up to 300 Mbps throughput, with a rich set of best-in-class features and benefits such as leading-edge radio protocols providing unrivalled spectral efficiency and wireless transmissions over distances in excess of 80 km. SensorTec Wireless’ diverse range of solutions enables Service Providers of all types to build higher capacity networks with even fewer network elements, thereby significantly reducing their overall CAPEX and subsequent OPEX throughout the life of their network.

The MIMO 2×2 portfolio represents a unique proposition to all types of operators (e.g. WISP’s, organizations of all sizes, government authorities, etc.) wishing to deliver Fast Ethernet data, voice and video services at ultra-long ranges, whilst at the same time providing a wide set of networking features and maintaining strict QoS control. With their increased aggregate bit rates and improved coverage range, our base stations now allow operators to cater for more and higher capacity remote subscriber units than ever before, thus reducing capital expenditure on network infrastructure. SensorTec Wireless’ new MIMO 2×2 product family is an optimal solution for a diverse range of applications, from Wireless ISP’s requiring multi-megabit capacity to corporates, from government authorities to mobile operators.
