Intracom Telecom, a global telecommunication systems and solutions vendor, has announced the launch of its new millimetre wave (mmWave) MU-MIMO Terminal Station, the WiBAS G5 GigaConnect. The company is displaying the product at its stand during MWC 2023.
Operators can now offer high-end wireless Gigabit connectivity services to more homes in suburban and rural areas thanks to the improved modem technology of the system, while gaining higher channel bandwidth utilization and denser networks (point-to-multipoint / PMP). The WiBAS G5 GigaConnect is ideal for service locations requiring cost-effective and rapidly-implemented FWA networks as it enables state-of-the-art IP connectivity in zero-footprint installations.
This terminal delivers download speeds of 1 Gigabit/s, increased operational convenience, reliable performance and power-saving features, while its MU-MIMO technology facilitates high spectrum utilization in parallel with fast and reliable connections. It also offers advanced networking features, extended coverage and leading PMP radio technology in the 24.25-29.50GHz area-licensed bands, while its zero-touch provisioning capabilities enable effortless network deployment.
John Tenidis, Marketing Director of Intracom Telecom's Wireless Networks Solutions portfolio, noted: “With the commercial launch of the WiBAS G5 GigaConnect terminal station we deliver our promise to our customers for a device that, apart from the gigabit download speeds it offers, is backwards compatible and forward interoperable with the WiBAS G5 dual-BS and G5 smart-BS base station devices, providing 100% reuse of the existing network investment”.
Dimitrios Pantelopoulos, R&D Director of Intracom Telecom’s Wireless Networks Solutions Division added: “The MU-MIMO WIBAS technology of the GigaConnect terminal enables maximum exploitation of the available spectrum and the provision of wide coverage of rural areas with 1 Gbps service.”
