Mimosa Networks today announced the Mimosa C5x, the industry's most versatile, integrated 5 GHz radio with four modular, twist-on antenna options. With best-in-class front-to-back (FTB) and front-to-side (FTS) ratios for superior noise immunity, and extended frequency operation from 4.9 GHz to 6.4 GHz, the ultra-rugged C5x is disrupting the industry and is setting new price and performance benchmarks for integrated wireless connectivity.

Cost-effective solution scales with your network

The modular design of the C5x is a perfect fit for network operators, offering the ease and simplicity of an integrated radio coupled with antenna gain flexibility for streamlined installation and reduced inventory costs.

The C5x is optimised for short- to mid-range links with a native 8 dBi gain that can be increased to 12, 16, 20 or 25 dBi using a set of modular twist-on antennas. With a disruptive price point, the C5x is designed for cost-effective point-to-multipoint (PTMP) deployments, delivering up to 100 BaseT of IP throughput out-of-the-box, and up to 500 Mbps when paired with a "C5x-PTMP" feature key upgrade (sold separately).

A separate point-to-point (PTP) "C5x-PTP" feature key will upgrade the C5x to deliver up to 700 Mbps throughput for a PTP link.

Incredible RF performance

Fabricated in rugged die-cast metal to excel in the harshest environments, the custom-engineered N5-X Cassegrain or horn antennas are optimised for gain across a broad spectrum range. Best-in-class noise isolation provides immunity from interference with breakthrough FTB and FTS performance, delivering 10 bB improvement in the Signal-to-Interference-plus-Noise Ratio (SINR). This feature translates into a 10X performance increase against competitive integrated radios.

Extended frequency operation

Based on Mimosa's field-proven C5c software, the Mimosa C5x, like all Mimosa products, is engineered with extended frequency support and takes advantage of both 4.9 GHz public safety applications in the United States and unlicensed frequencies up to 6.4 GHz worldwide (where allowed by local regulations).

In addition, the accompanying N5-X modular antennas are specifically optimised for C5x extended frequency support.

Packs a powerful punch in a small form factor

At just 17.5 centimetres in height and weighing only 370 grams, the C5x delivers with an incredibly sleek form factor, perfect for visually sensitive installations. And with a typical energy consumption of sub-10w, the C5x is ideal for solar-powered, battery back-up installations, where power and reliability are at a premium.
