Small Cell Base Station Solutions
In addition, CableFree offer Small Cell solutions are available with smaller form factor and lower transmit power levels of typically 500mW, 1W and up to 5W. 2×2 and 4×4 MIMO versions are offered, including dual 2×2 configurations.
Contact CableFree for details.
Unlicensed LTE (LTE-U)
CableFree offers Band 46 5GHz LTE Base Station and Outdoor CPE devices for operation in Unlicensed 5GHz spectrum, enabling smaller operators and private customers to build LTE without requiring access to licensed spectrum. Band 46 covers 5150 – 5925MHz and uses TDD-LTE technology.
Contact CableFree for details.
CableFree 4G & 5G LTE base stations already support NB-IoT release 14 compliant standards, to enable connection of IoT devices to a CableFree LTE base station.
- Single-tone and multi-tone category NB1 UE support
- 15 kHz and 3.75 kHz subcarrier spacing are supported
- All operation modes (in-band, guard band and standalone) are supported
- Multiple NB-IoT and LTE cells can be used at the same time in the same eNodeB
CableFree LTE Base Station Gallery
CableFree offers a wide range of 4G/LTE CPE devices for indoor and outdoor applications, fixed, mobile and nomadic users, buildings and vehicles. These CPE devices are fully 3GPP standards compliant and can be used with either CableFree LTE Base Station infrastructure or other brands or pre-existing 4G networks.
CableFree 4G & 5G LTE Infrastructure and Backhaul Networks
Are you considering building a 4G or 5G LTE Network?
You’ll need access to spectrum. Generally, 4G & 5G technology uses licensed frequencies and requires regional, national or customer-specific operator frequency licenses to operate. LTE works in frequencies from 450MHz up to 3800MHz (3.8GHz). Options for Unlicensed LTE-U (5GHz band) are available.
CableFree Mobile WiFi hotspot products can use existing 4G operator networks and can use SIM cards and billing plans from those operators in order to provide bandwidth
For customers without access to LTE frequency bands or networks, we can suggest our other complimentary range of products which can operate in other licensed or unlicensed frequencies.
Installing and Operating CableFree LTE
The CableFree range of LTE products are normally implemented by approved integrator partners on a project-specific basis to create a complete network solution. 4G and 5G base station infrastructure are complex and require detailed configuration to operate.
Operators generally need suitable skills, training and support to implement a 4G or 5G network. If you require a support contract from CableFree, please ask for a quotation.
Please note that available operating distances/ranges depend on RF environment, antennas, regulatory limits (EIRP), frequency and interference planning, and TDD timing modes. Please clarify before ordering which modes you intend using with your network. Additional modes needed later may require additional software or support.
Product Features and Performance options
Please check carefully with CableFree Technical Support that the specific combinations of frequency, bandwidth, modulation, power, range and capacity you desire are available before confirming any orders. The advanced reconfigurable technology used in CableFree 4G & 5G base stations is highly flexible but certain combinations of bands and modes may require extra hardware, have certain restrictions in use or in very unusual cases be unavailable. We will be very happy to advise on most suitable configurations to ensure you have the best performing network available.
