The Mimosa C5c is a flexible connectorized client radio solution for accommodating short and long range PTP and PTMP, as well as custom antenna solutions. Incorporating unique support for Mimosa’s SRS technology, the C5c enables the fastest speeds and is the most scalable wireless access solution available today. The C5c is ideal for professionally-installed rural Fixed Wireless and long range applications for point-to-point backhaul links.
Flexible Antenna Options
Connect to virtually any dual polarization antenna to custom engineer longer distance client links. The C5c has dual RP-SMA connectors for easy cabled antenna connectivity. It can be mounted to any pole via hose clamps or easily clipped onto antennas supporting compatible clip-on mounting bracket systems.
PTP Backhaul Links
The C5c provides extreme price/performance for PTP backhaul links in a small form factor. Wide frequency range support allows avoidance of crowded 5 GHz spectrum bands. Where regulations allow, long distances are enabled with high system power and flexible antenna options.
The C5c offers client-side support for Mimosa’s proprietary Spectrum Reuse Synchronization (SRS) technology. This ensures each client device precisely receives and transmits under the timing control of the access point and can dynamically request upstream bandwidth. As opposed to alternative (fixed) timeslot protocols, upstream bandwidth and latencies are allocated on demand which enables significantly higher overall upstream network bandwidth utilization.
A key component to scaling networks efficiently is leveraging innovative new Multi-User capabilities. With MU-MIMO, multiple clients on the same access point are coordinated by the access point to simultaneously share spectrum ``spatially'' via unique antenna beamforming. Each client device shares spatial geographic information with its associated Mimosa A5 device to allow coordination of the shared spectrum. This radically improves multipoint access scaling and spectral efficiency.
*Distances vary based on Mimosa C5c and the access point power and antenna gain. Please refer to the Mimosa Design Tools to simulate performance with your regional wireless regulatory restrictions.
FLEXIBLE ANTENNA OPTIONS
Connect to virtually any dual polarization antenna to custom-engineer longer distance client links. The C5c supports 2x2:2 MIMO dual connector RP-SMA for easy cabled antenna connectivity and can be mounted to any pole via hose clamps, or easily clipped onto antenna supporting compatible clip-on mounting bracket systems.
SPECTRUM REUSE SYNCHRONIZATION (SRS) CLIENT
In SRS mode, all uplink and downlink transmissions are scheduled by the Access Point (A5-14/A5c), which greatly improves medium access protocol (MAC) efficiency, allows interference coordination, and reduces jitter. In contrast, in WiFi-Interop mode, clients need to contend with each other to access the channel, which leads to reduced MAC efficiency, higher interference levels, and higher jitter.
A key component to scaling network capacity is leveraging innovative new multi-user MIMO capabilities. With MU-MIMO, multiple clients on the same access point are coordinated to simultaneously share spectrum "spatially" via unique antenna beamforming. All the client devices provide their spatial information to their associated A5/A5c device to facilitate coordination of the shared spectrum. This radically improves multipoint access capacity and spectral efficiency and reduces latency.
