Mimosa B5x 4.9-6.4GHz Point-to-Point (PTP) Backhaul Radio



The Mimosa B5x is one of the industry’s fastest unlicensed backhaul solutions. It’s ideal for short to medium range relay and tower links, custom-engineered collocation, and licensed 4.9 GHz spectrum. It’s modular, with the ability to connect N5-X compatible twist on antennas (12 dBi horn, 16 dBi horn, 20 dBi dish, 25 dBi dish—not included).

  • Fast and Flexible
    • As one of the highest capacity, unlicensed PTP solutions in the industry, it delivers up to 1.5 Gbps (IP). 160 MHz of aggregate channel capacity and GPS Sync mode provide flexibility for performance.
  • Double Reliability
    • Tame unlicensed spectrum interference via custom-engineered multi-channel and autoeverything technology—as good as two smart links in one radio.
  • Extended Frequency
    • Rise above the noise with extended frequency support from 4.9–6.4 GHz.
  • Ultra Rugged
    • Carrier-grade IP67 design allows the B5x to withstand the harshest of environmental conditions.
  • Easily Add New Links
    • The B5x is spectrum friendly. Unique, high-precision GPS Sync technology reuses the same channel network wide. Keep adding more capacity to more sites and waste less spectrum.
  • Monitor With Ease
    • Assessing link health and identifying potential problems has never been easier. Links are instantly monitored from the Mimosa management platform.
