Mimosa C5c EF Point-to-Point Backhaul & Point-to-Multipoint Client Radio 5Ghz



100-00018-01 - C5c - No Client Too Far, Point-to-Point Backhaul & Point-to-Multipoint Client Radio 4.9–6.4 GHz (PTP/PTMP*)


C5c has been designed specifically to handle long-range backhaul (PTP), point-to-multipoint (PTMP) GigaPoP links, and PTMP MicroPoP links impaired by vegetation. Connectorized by design, the C5c mates with many popular antennas, delivering 700 Mbps of TCP throughput.

The Mimosa C5c is a flexible connectorized client radio solution for accommodating short and long range PTP and PTMP, as well as custom antenna solutions. Incorporating unique support for Mimosa’s SRS technology, the C5c enables the fastest speeds and is the most scalable wireless access solution available today. The C5c is ideal for professionally-installed rural Fixed Wireless and long range applications for point-to-point backhaul links.

  • Flexible Antenna Options
    • Connect to virtually any dual polarization antenna to custom engineer longer distance client links.
    • The C5c has dual RP-SMA connectors for easy cabled antenna connectivity.
    • It can be mounted to any pole via hose clamps or easily clipped onto antennas supporting compatible clip-on mounting bracket systems.
  • PTP Backhaul Links
    • The C5c provides extreme price/performance for PTP backhaul links in a small form factor.
    • Wide frequency range support allows avoidance of crowded 5 GHz spectrum bands.
    • Where regulations allow, long distances are enabled with high system power and flexible antenna options.
  • SRS Client
    • The C5c offers client-side support for Mimosa’s proprietary Spectrum Reuse Synchronization (SRS) technology.
    • This ensures each client device precisely receives and transmits under the timing control of the access point and can dynamically request upstream bandwidth.
    • As opposed to alternative (fixed) timeslot protocols, upstream bandwidth and latencies are allocated on demand which enables significantly higher overall upstream network bandwidth utilization.
