The C5x from Mimosa is an ultra-rugged 5 GHz radio operating from 4.9 to 6.4 GHz, available with four modular, twist-on antenna options. It is optimized for short to mid-range links with a native 8 dBi gain that can be increased to 12, 16, 20 or 25 dBi using Mimosa’s modular N5-X twist-on antennas. The custom-engineered N5-X Cassegrain or horn antennas are fabricated in rugged die-cast metal. They provide immunity from interference with breakthrough FTB and FTS performance, delivering 10 dB improvement in the Signal-to-Interference-Plus-Noise Ratio (SINR). This feature translates into a 10X performance increase against competitive integrated radios.
The C5x is designed for cost-effective point-to-multipoint (PTMP) deployments delivering up to 100BaseT 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. The C5x measures just 17.5 centimeters in height and weighs only 370 grams. It is ideal for public safety networks, smart cities & WiFi, broadband service provider, enterprise and campus connectivity applications.
