Indoor CPE supports multiple LTE bands and Wi-Fi 6
Baicells Technologies has announced its AtomID15M-HP indoor Customer Premise Equipment (CPE) running on 3GPP Release 12, CAT15 standards. The CPE includes an embedded AP to support Wi-Fi 6 options in both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz range. The unit supports LTE bands 41, 42, 43, and 48 (CBRS) making it compatible with the growing number of networks deploying CBRS spectrum. The model also comes equipped with a DL 4×4 MIMO and supports Carrier Aggregation to provide a peak downlink rate of up to 580 Mbps.
The indoor, CAT15 CPE is the next generation of indoor CPE offered by Baicells and will provide a significant increase in performance over the previous CAT6 indoor CPE models. It makes an ideal fit for securely connecting households or enterprises to a carrier’s wireless network to support today’s growing list of connected use cases.
Notable enhancements include the support of Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax), an increase in modulation from 64QAM to 256QAM, channel bandwidth up to 80 MHz with carrier aggregation, an increase of 32 active connections to 128 active connections, and the ability to set an EasyMesh configuration with the simple push of a button.
The AtomID15M-HP will support a maximum TX Power of 30 dBm (1-W) to provide a higher data rate at the network’s edge and be remotely configurable through the Baicells OMC/web GUI to give network operators greater insight into their end-users’ connectivity situations. This is another example of Baicells plug-and-play approach to simplifying the operation of advanced networks.
“Our team has been hard at work developing this new indoor CPE to provide service providers the ability to set up a network and get customers connected incredibly quickly, without sacrificing quality of service,” said Boun Senekham, Baicells VP of sales. “We’ve seen a large segment of the market using our cost-effective base stations coupled with our indoor devices to provide quick connectivity for campgrounds, mobile home parks, and local communities and this new, indoor CPE model should continue to drive this trend forward.”
The AtomID15M-HP will be available to purchase in April through Baicells authorized distribution and reseller partners.
