Movandi Launches BeamXR Solution to Accelerate Large Scale 5G Commercialization

Movandi, a leading company working to revolutionize 5G, has unveiled new BeamXR solutions, poised to accelerate and extend the range of real world 5G deployments. Today’s millimeter wave 5G networks are filled with a myriad of technical challenges. Movandi’s new BeamXR solution provides the foundation for unlocking the potential of 5G millimeter wave networks and accelerating large-scale 5G commercialization.

Millimeter wave 5G networks require dense deployment of network nodes, which translates into extremely high costs for radio equipment and fiber. According to market analysts, major American operators will run out of capacity below 6 GHz, driving them toward mm-wave deployment in the next few years and thus reducing the related cost and complexity would be a game changer in the industry.

Movandi’s new BeamXR 5G system delivers improvements in performance, coverage and latency to connect 5G everywhere. It solves the issue of 5G coverage limitations caused by the propagation characteristics of radio signals at 5G millimeter wave frequency bands and increases 5G coverage, while reducing infrastructure costs, simplifies deployment and increases network capacity, enabling new high-reliability, low-latency services.

The BeamXR platform was developed in modular, high performance design to support a broad range of 5G millimeter wave applications, enabling fewer traditional 5G base stations to support a greater number of fixed wireless and mobile broadband access points. It is truly unique since it was designed and optimized as a complete system with unmatched performance, cost and size advantages that unlock the potential of 5G and other multi-gigabit networks. According to Reza Rofougaran, the CTO, Co-CEO and Founder of Movandi, the new BeamXR solution is transformative and cane accelerate large-scale 5G commercialization by reducing infrastructure costs, simplifying deployment and increase network capacity, without impacting latency.

To date, millimeter wave 5G has been successfully demonstrated and the delivered performance is promising. Solutions that can address the design complexity increases and signals reliability over long distances have made scaling a challenge. As such, many in the mobile industry considered millimeter highly impractical for mobile devices and networks, and thus unlikely to materialize. Using BeamXR, the millimeter wave signals can be boosted to penetrate buildings or bend the signal around a building. While many engineers attempt to use existing technology building blocks, Movandi’s approach provides an entirely new foundation for 5G devices.

In contrast to traditional expensive, bulky and inefficient millimeter-wave antennas, BeamXR is more compact, more power-efficient over a wider power range, more spectrally efficient, and cheaper to produce. And because it can more effectively distribute the 5G signal, one can achieve greater coverage while meeting very low latency in hard to reach places.

Movandi is sampling BeamXR to its early access partners including major global operators, infrastructure vendors and OEMs. It will also demonstrate the offering at Mobile World Congress from February 25-28, 2019 at Fira Gran Via, Barcelona.
