WNC and Movandi Partner to Deliver Innovative Dual Band 5G mmWave Smart Repeaters
New mmWave Single Box Dual Band WNC Smart Repeaters Powered by Movandi Shipping Available Today
Enables enhanced, affordable coverage for private enterprise networks and service provider indoor applications
IRVINE, CA, March 01, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–MWC Barcelona 2022—Movandi, a leader in 5G millimeter wave (mmWave) RF silicon technology and software, today announced its partnership with Wistron NeWeb Corp. (WNC), a leading communications solutions provider, to provide innovative dual-band smart repeaters optimized for indoor networks. Powered by Movandi’s dual-band 28 GHz and 39 GHz BeamXR chipsets, the new WNC repeaters are available today and designed to provide cost-effective solutions for bandwidth-hungry 5G private enterprise networks and improved coverage for applications domestic service providers.
Indoor smart repeater deployments require low-cost access points and cost-effective installation for high-density coverage as well as multi-band capabilities to support a diverse range of end-user and service provider needs. Today’s 5G small cell solutions are prohibitively expensive for high-density applications, and small cell deployments typically have “blind spots.” Cost-effective single-package mmWave dual-band smart repeaters with integrated phased array antennas manufactured by WNC and powered by Movandi BeamXR dual-band 28 GHz and 39 GHz chipsets solve these challenges for home networks and other applications interiors, including office buildings, schools, campuses, convention centers and sports arenas.
“Our dual-band smart repeater collaboration with Movandi supports mmWave frequencies from all carriers globally,” said Johnson Hsu, vice president and general manager, Connected Home Business Group, WNC. “Movandi’s BeamXR chipset solution enables unparalleled application and deployment flexibility with compact size, standard power requirements, flexible beamforming including hemispherical beams for optimal room coverage, and mesh capabilities for bend signals around obstacles and extend range and coverage.”
While some 5G experts believe that mmWave networks are more expensive to deploy than sub-6GHz C-band networks, this is only true for low-capacity, low-bandwidth applications. Emerging private networks that support industrial automation and other bandwidth-intensive applications require much higher capacity for artificial intelligence, machine learning, and high-resolution video. Real-world, demanding enterprise and industrial applications are now emerging where mmWave networks offer the optimal approach. Compared to C-band networks, mmWave technology offers the lowest cost, fastest deployment, and easiest RF planning for complex, high-density indoor applications.
WNC’s dual-band smart repeaters for indoor applications have standard power requirements without the need to pull fiber or install special electrical components. A compact, single-box WNC smart repeater based on BeamXR technology enables easy, fast, and cost-effective installation and daisy-chaining of up to five units using RF signals to improve coverage flexibility and reduce deployment costs. WNC’s smart repeaters allow mmWave signals to be brought indoors from a gNB or small cell and then broadcast the small cell signals to improve indoor coverage. Repeaters also support dense indoor mesh networks, allowing traffic to be routed dynamically based on signal quality, bandwidth, latency, and network congestion. Strategic repeater placement and daisy-chaining capabilities allow mmWave signals to propagate around obstacles.
“WNC is at the forefront of smart repeater design and provides foundational technologies to accelerate the deployment of 5G private networks as well as indoor services by leading global carriers,” said Maryam Rofougaran, CEO and Founder of Movandi. “Movandi is leading the way in 5G mmWave innovation with new chipsets, smart software and spectrum support improving both performance and economics for global 5G operators. Our collaboration with WNC will expand the coverage and reduce the cost of mmWave deployments for private networks and indoor applications. “
Movandi’s BeamXR smart repeater solution includes patented chipset technologies, custom antenna design, algorithms and software. To speed development, Movandi also offers reference designs that include a complete chipset with beamformer, high/low converters supporting IQ BB or IF, PLL synthesizer, dual beam and dual bias, remote beam scheduling, AGC and TDD synchronization to reduce interference. and maximize gain, and BeamX mesh software-defined beam networking.
BeamXR technology is the industry’s most innovative smart repeater solution, designed to solve the difficult physical and economic deployment challenges of 5G mmWave by extending range, improving coverage flexibility, providing solutions for obstacles signal strength and accelerating deployment schedules for indoor, outdoor and mobile environments. Additionally, BeamXR smart repeaters powered by Movandi reduce the CAPEX and OPEX of mmWave deployment by up to 50%.
