Mimosa Networks, a pioneer in gigabit wireless technology, today announced the launch of the first wave of its groundbreaking wireless Internet solutions – the B5 Backhaul radio with coordinated Massive MIMO technology, and Mimosa Cloud Services featuring advanced network-wide planning and analytics. The pairing of the B5 radio with Mimosa Cloud Services is a breakthrough in connectivity, allowing ISPs (Internet Service Providers) to seamlessly build and manage high-capacity scalable networks that pick up where fiber leaves off.
With the launch of these two solutions, Mimosa embarks on its comprehensive “cloud-to-client” strategy – bringing disruptive technology advancements that deliver the speed and reliability demanded by today’s end users. “Wireless networks have been historically limited in the ability to deploy fiber speeds economically and on a global scale,” says Brian Hinman, CEO of Mimosa. “Mimosa’s mission is to create an incredibly broad suite of products at each layer of the Internet access network that will make wireless a scalable Internet solution for all types of communities worldwide.”
A groundbreaking advance in wireless Internet capacity, Mimosa unveils its B5 Backhaul radio as the first 4 MIMO stream, colocatable radio with advanced spectrum re-use capabilities. The B5 introduces the innovation of “Spectrum Multiplication,” changing the way the industry will view spectrum efficiency.
Jaime Fink, Mimosa’s Chief Product Officer, stated, “The B5 radio is the first product in the world to offer Spectrum Multiplication, leveraging coordinated Massive MIMO technology, which allows colocated radios to deliver an astonishing 16 MIMO streams, and 4 Gbps of throughput, all while sharing the same channel. The ability to deliver this type of technology at such an accessible price point will revolutionize the wireless service provider industry.”
The Mimosa B5 introduces an entirely new set of features never before seen in the outdoor wireless market:
- Advanced Colocation – the B5 radio makes the most of available spectrum. Using both GPS and GLONASS to maximize satellite sync through precision timing as well as sophisticated RF isolation techniques, the B5 radio offers maximum spectrum re-use for colocated devices.
- Auto Everything – the first radio to offer real-time spectrum analysis without service interruption. The B5 radio automatically optimizes bandwidth, frequency and power use based on historical and real-time data – allowing the radio to immediately adapt to any environmental change.
- Dual Link – actively load balances across two non-contiguous channels to provide unprecedented resiliency against interference.
Complementing the innovative hardware, Mimosa Cloud Services revolutionizes the process of network planning and management with an intelligent, cloud-based planning and analytics tool set for wireless service providers. Enhanced with Google Maps™ mapping service, Mimosa’s network design features allow operators to visually plan and design links while viewing their entire network in one location. Additional topology and obstruction information as well as environmental ITU-based data provide deeper understanding of how a link might operate in real-life.
Mimosa Cloud Services also uses advanced management and monitoring techniques to support networks as they grow. Leveraging the B5’s constant spectrum analysis ability, providers can view real-time and historical spectrum data for any Mimosa radio on their network. Bulk collection of network statistics and graphing of device performance provide operators with the analytics required to improve their networks. Advanced monitoring and alert systems along with secure connection to all Mimosa devices ensures that operators are informed and able to pinpoint problems when customers experience any service interruption.
Mimosa Cloud Services design capabilities are available now. The B5 Backhaul radio is available for order in two versions – an antenna-integrated 5 GHz backhaul radio (B5); and a connectorized radio-only version (B5c). The B5 (List Price: $899 for B5, $839 for B5c) will begin shipping to customers in Fall 2014. To purchase the Mimosa B5 or test drive Mimosa Cloud Services, visit www.mimosa.co.

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...

Things are changing so quickly in IoT that it would take a wizard to predict which ecosystem will gain the most traction. In order for IoT to reach its potential, smart devices must be able to work together. Today, there are a slew of interoperability standards being promoted by big names to make this happen: HomeKit, Brillo and Alljoyn. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Adam Justice, vice president and general manager of Grid Connect, will review what happens when smart devices don’t work togethe...

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
