InfiNet Wireless - the global leader in manufacturing of carrier-grade fixed broadband wireless access (FBWA) solutions – today announces major enhancements to its 5 GHz range of solutions, both for its InfiMAN 2x2 and InfiLINK 2x2 families of wireless solutions. These enhancements include a new higher power radio sub-system and a reduced form-factor 23 dBi integrated antenna.
All wireless units previously fitted with a transmit power of 23 dBm (equivalent to 200 mW) have now been upgraded with a new radio sub-system which will boost its power to 27 dBm (or 500 mW). This major enhancement will effectively extend the link budget, as well as improve overall link capacity, availability and maximal link distance.
These new radio modules will not only be fitted in all InfiLINK 2x2 PRO models and InfiMAN 2x2 base station sectors, but also in our LITE models and subscriber terminals. The specific 5 GHz wireless units to which this enhancement relates to are as follows:
- InfiLINK 2x2 PRO: all Mmx(s) and Omx(s) units;
- InfiLINK 2x2 LITE and InfiMAN 2x2 subscriber terminals: Smn 23 and 28 dBi and Lmn models previously fitted with 200 mW radios;
- InfiMAN 2x2 base station sectors: all Mmxb(s), Omxb(s), Smnb and Lmnb units.
InfiNet Wireless is also pleased to introduce a brand-new reduced form-factor and lighter 23 dBi flat panel antenna which will be integrated with our 5 GHz wireless units, and which will maintain the same gain and performance as our previous 23 dBi antenna. This new 30x30 cm antenna will be fitted with Mmx(s) and Smn products effectively replacing the previous generation 37x37 cm one.
Following this new product introduction, we no longer feel there is a need for the 21 dBi versions of our LITE products and are officially discontinuing all previous 21 dBi models, with the concerned ones being:
- R5000-Smn/5X.300.2x63.2x21 (to be replaced by R5000-Smn/5X.300.2x63.2x23)
- R5000-Smn/5X.300.2x200.2x21 (replacement model R5000-Smn/5X.300.2x500.2x23)
These new enhancements are a clear indication of InfiNet’s R&D strategy of continuous improvement, aimed primarily at delivering yet more performance and reliability to its existing portfolio, whilst at the same time increasing customer satisfaction and experience.
These new product versions are available for immediate shipping.
