N5-45x4 Sector Antenna

All the beamforming gain and ground coverage of a sector.All the sidelobe rejection of a horn

The Mimosa N5-45×4 is the industry’s first sector antenna to deliver the best of both worlds — incredible noise rejection and long-distance performance, with wideband 4.9–6.4 GHz operation for fixed wireless broadband. This 4-port, dual-slant polarization, 45º sector is designed for use with the Mimosa A5c 4×4 MIMO radio, delivering gain-enhancing beamforming for the best possible channel reuse, range and noise rejection at collocation and tower sites.

Reject Noise and Synchronize

Overcoming noise at tower sites is key to scaling capacity. The N5-45×4 delivers industry-leading side lobe rejection and an unprecedented 43 dB front-to-back (FTB) performance — the highest FTB ratio of any sector or horn antenna in the industry. When used in combination with the Mimosa A5c access point, there’s no higher performance tower solution to deliver full, 2x spectrum reuse.

Wideband Operation

Supporting 4.9 GHz public safety applications and multipoint licensed operation up to 6.4 GHz (where regulations allow), the N5-45×4 provides an additional 800 MHz of spectrum beyond the crowded 5.15–5.85 GHz unlicensed channels.

Go the Distance

The Mimosa N5-45×4 offers the best of both worlds — a long distance, high-gain sector with the superior noise isolation of a horn.

Competitive sectors offer high-gain, but fail to reduce side lobe and front-to-back noise. Symmetric horn antennas achieve good noise isolation, but typically offer lower gain and inefficient symmetrical ground coverage patterns.

Compatible with Third-Party Radios

In addition to the 4×4 MIMO Mimosa A5c, the N5-45×4 will support two concurrent third-party 2×2 MIMO radios operating on separate channels to double the coverage capacity at a tower site and avoid the congestion of the unlicensed 5 GHz band.

Designed for Beamforming

Paired with the 4×4 MIMO Mimosa A5c, the Mimosa N5-45×4 provides an easy-to-aim, 9º vertical beamwidth coverage area with a narrow, 4.5º signal and +3 dB gain per client. In the uplink direction, the A5c’s digital phasing works with the 4 port N5-45×4, adding +3 dB of receive gain.

Expanding MicroPoP Coverage

N5-360 Antenna 4.9–6.4 GHz

Introducing the industry’s first 4-port, beamforming, 360º antenna specifically designed exclusively for Mimosa’s A5c access point. The N5-360 antenna’s unique design incorporates quad-180º overlapping antenna polarizations, doubling the coverage of Mimosa MicroPoP deployments with 3 dB of beamforming gain. The N5-360 boosts throughput by providing balanced dual-stream coverage over 360º of azimuth. Without sacrificing performance, the N5-360 operates over a wide frequency range, from 4.9 to 6.4 GHz, supporting licensed public safety bands and other expanded frequencies, where permitted by region.

Longer-Range MicroPoPs

Double the coverage area with 60% longer reach for MicroPoP deployments, easily handling deployments to homes within 500 m in dense, last mile, suburban areas.

3 dB performance enhancement in a compact design, with all new quad-180º overlapping antenna polarizations that enable range-extending, beamforming technology.

Break PTMP Barriers to Entry

A5x Connectorized 2×2 Access Point 4.9–6.4 GHz

With fast client speeds and great access point capacity, along with local and network-wide spectrum reuse, the cost-effective, connectorized A5x delivers fiber-fast connectivity for any unlicensed Fixed Wireless network. The A5x is well suited for short to long-range pole and tower point-to-multipoint (PTMP) applications, access point colocation (GPS sync), and Municipal and Rural Licensed Public Safety multipoint (4.9 GHz). In situations where the A 5c connectorized 4×4 access point is too much or too powerful, the A5x is the perfect choice.

Fiber Speeds

With access point capacity of up to 700 Mbps (IP), the A5x delivers the speeds consumers and business users demand at a fraction of the cost of delivering fiber-to-the-premises.

Increased Capacity at Each Site

With integrated, high-precision SRS (GPS sync) technology, new A5x sectors can easily be added at existing A5 and B5 sites and reuse the same channel. This saves valuable, scarce unlicensed spectrum resources when new A5x devices are installed “back- to-back” on the same tower or pole.

Add Subscribers with Ease

Install, aim and go! We’ve eliminated manual installation and pre-provisioning complexity, so you can focus on adding subscribers quickly.

Ultra-High Client Capacity

TDMA techniques provide significant improvements when scaling the number of clients. By dynamically allocating upstream timeslots upon client request, network scale, spectrum efficiency and access point utilization are optimized to the highest degree possible.

Extended Frequency Available

Rise above the noise with available extended frequency support from 4.9–6.4 GHz.


Integrated Radio with Modular Antenna Options

The C5x radio’s native 8 dBi gain can be increased to 12, 16, 20 or 25 dBi using Mimosa’s modular, N5-X, twist-on antennas, offering the ease and simplicity of integrated radios, but with so much more flexibility!

Incredible RF Performance

Available with either Cassegrain or horn antenna options, the C5x reduces localized noise and provides immunity from interference with breakthrough front-to-back and front-to-side performance. Each antenna in the N5-X family is optimized to isolate noise with incredible sidelobe rejection.

Ultra Rugged

The C5x, with its die-cast aluminum metal enclosure, dual pole mounts, and industrial-grade twist-on antenna options, is custom-engineered to reduce noise, withstand the outdoor elements and stay mounted in harsh wind and extreme weather.

Versatile, Modular Radio

Mimosa’s integrated C5x radio and modular N5-X antennas provide the ultimate flexibility for PTP and PTMP extended frequency operation.

4.9–6.4 GHz

The Mimosa C5x is the industry’s most versatile, modular, radio solution with five gain options (8, 12, 16, 20 and 25 dBi). The ultra-rugged solution provides extended frequency operation from 4.9–6.4 GHz, with best-in-class noise immunity. Delivering the ultimate in flexibility and value, the C5x is the go-to solution for 5 GHz deployments. The C5x can be used in PTMP mode with speeds of up to 500 Mbps, or PTP mode with speeds of up to 700 Mbps.

Extended Frequency 4.9–6.4 GHz

To escape the noise, the C5x lets you take advantage of licensed frequencies from 4.9 GHz up to 6.4 GHz, where allowed by local regulations, including the public safety band in the US. The custom-designed N5-X modular antennas are specifically optimized for C5x extended frequency support.
