​aeromax, a Spanish wireless internet service provider has selected Mimosa Networks for its new 5G Fixed wireless service in the southeastern coastal region. Mimosa’s access, backhaul, and client solutions will be used to deliver speeds of 100 Mbps and greater for aeromax’s residential and business customers.

The aeromax network provides service in more than 2,000 cities and towns in Spain’s Costa Blanca region. The company has designed its new 5G high-speed network to run in parallel with its existing network.

The “aeromax f: fiber over the air” network uses Mimosa products in both GigaPoP and MicroPoP architectures.

aeromax GigaPoPs are tower deployments using Mimosa A5c connectorized (fitted with connectors to allow them to be connected to external antennas) of access points to service subscribers over a large geography.

In high-density neighborhoods, aeromax’s MicroPoP hub locations use Mimosa A5 access points connecting to Mimosa C5 client devices to serve residential subscribers. Strategically-located homeowners agree to serve as hub homes in exchange for a discounted service, a strategy which enables aeromax to scale quickly and effectively. aeromax will also deploy Mimosa B5 backhaul radios to augment its network design.

5G has yet to be fully standardized with the non-standalone 5G New Radio work due to be finalized by 3GPP in March 2018 and the standalone work scheduled for completion in September 2018. However, many vendors and operators are pushing ahead of the 3GPP standards, particularly for the fixed wireless use case.

“We are thrilled with the reliability, throughput, and speeds of the Mimosa gear,” said Stephan Bergmann, CEO of aeromax. “We have achieved amazing quality of service results on our ‘aeromax f’ 5G network, and our customers are amazed by the stability and speed. Mimosa’s fibre-fast speeds have also helped us win against the 4G/LTE services in licensed spectrum.”

Mimosa claims that its hybrid-fibre-wireless (HFW) technology significantly improves the time to market and lowers the cost to provide fibre-speed service to subscribers. Its proprietary Spectrum Reuse Synchronization (SRS) technology exploits advances in Massive MIMO and antenna beamforming to scale wireless networks with expanded capacity and bandwidth.

aeromax deployed RF elements’ Symmetrical Horn Carrier Class antennas together with Mimosa’s A5c connectorized access points. With a wider elevation pattern than a traditional sector antenna, the combined products are a good fit for hilly terrain, projecting signals across more homes more effectively. "We are amazed at how accurate RF elements' new horn technology is. Coupled with Mimosa’s 5G gear – it is rapid, safe, and precise,” said Bergmann.

“We are excited to work with aeromax in achieving its plans for delivering the ultimate broadband experience to its subscribers while accelerating their time to revenue,” said John Colvin, Mimosa’s senior vice president of Global Field Operations. “We are at a tipping point where service providers of all sizes around the world are embracing our vision of delivering fibre-fast speeds using our innovative 5G fixed wireless solutions.”

Colvin continued, “Our ultimate goal is to put our customers in a position to exceed their business objectives while making it a reality for their end customers to have the highest quality connection to the rest of the world. We are gratified to see service providers on the forefront of embracing innovative solutions and leading the way to address their customer needs in cities, suburbs, urban and rural areas all over the world."
