Innovative RF Front End Technology to Revolutionize mmWave Networks

Movandi, a venture-backed startup with a mission to revolutionize millimeter wave networks, has launched BeamX technology, a scalable RF front-end system solution. The superior performance of Movandi’s RFIC, phased array antenna, and beamforming techniques enable the next generation of 5G and multi-gigabit connectivity that is driving new applications. The company will be demonstrating it’s innovative technology at MWC Americas in San Francisco, from September 12 - 14. 2017.

Movandi’s BeamX front-end integrates RF, antenna, beamforming, and control algorithms into a modular 5G millimeter wave solution targeted for Customer Premises Equipment (CPE), small cell, and base station applications. Their technology is configurable to support different baseband/modem SoC solutions and is uniquely positioned to become the complete RF and antenna system, from baseband interface to antenna, for new applications in 5G, indoor gigabit access, the last mile, and satellite networks.

Developing high frequency networks operating in the millimeter wave band present unique technical challenges versus traditional connectivity and cellular systems. First, higher frequencies have greater transmission losses caused by distance, blockage, and non-line-of-sight conditions, depending on the environment and the application. To achieve longer range, beamforming antennas are often required, adding to system complexity. Solving these challenges will unlock the huge potential offered by much greater bandwidth, spatial reuse, and frequency reuse, which support much higher performance systems in the same regions.

The BeamX 28 and 39 GHz solutions combine a modular architecture, power efficient designs, phased arrays, and beamforming techniques to provide unmatched performance, cost and size advantages that unlock the potential of 5G and other multi-gigabit networks.
