Written by: Sam Fenwick | Published:

Airspan Networks announced on 20 November that it has acquired Mimosa Networks, thereby obtaining the latter’s capabilities and innovations in wireless broadband point-to-point and point-to-multipoint networks and expanding Airspan’s existing North American presence with an engineering centre in Silicon Valley.

Airspan is a 5G small cell access and backhaul solution provider, with more than 1,000 customers in more than 100 countries. Its product portfolio includes indoor and outdoor small cells, and all-outdoor, compact micro and macro base stations, a variety of user devices and network optimisation solutions ranging from sub-6GHz to millimetre wave.

Mimosa Networks specialises in wireless broadband solutions, delivering ‘fibre-fast’ connectivity to service providers and enterprise, industrial and government operators worldwide. Mimosa access, backhaul, and client solutions are deployed in a hybrid-fibre-wireless architecture, and engineered for both point-to-point and point-to-multipoint connections, across a variety of applications including residential and business high-speed internet access, surveillance, agribusiness, education and hospitality networking. The company claims that its technology ‘delivers unprecedented levels of cost-effective spectral efficiency’. Founded in 2012 and headquartered in Silicon Valley, Mimosa states that its products are sold worldwide by members of its partner program.

“This important step in Airspan’s growth emphasises critical new solutions in mobile and broadband and the addition of the Santa Clara team strengthens our capabilities in the disruptive massively scalable densification techniques that are required by the 4G/5G telecom expenditure cycle currently underway. Mimosa brings important intellectual property to the table and accelerates Airspan’s path to delivering 5G features such as Massive MIMO to the industry” said Eric Stonestrom, CEO of Airspan. “Furthermore, Mimosa’s disruptive and award-winning fixed wireless technology addresses the rapidly growing wireless broadband markets and further establishes Airspan as a leader in the convergence of densified 4G/5G mobile network backhaul and Broadband Access. Also the strong distribution channel allows Airspan products to be sold to many more customers.

“We are excited to welcome the Mimosa team into the Airspan family. This acquisition will bring an immediate diversity to our customer base, vertical markets, product portfolio, development centres and sales channels, and places Airspan in the heart of Silicon Valley 5G application innovation.”
