The following topologies are fully supported with CableFree MIMO OFDM radios, which gives superior flexibility in network implementation:

  • Point to Point (P2P, PTP)
  • Point to Multipoint (P2MP, PTMP)
  • Mesh (Long and short range Mesh capability)

MIMO Radio Antennas for 10.5GHz (10.1-10.6GHz)

CableFree 10.5GHz Parabolic Antenna 67cm diameter
CableFree 10.5GHz Parabolic Antenna 67cm diameter

10.5GHz Parabolic antennas:

  • High Gain 10.5GHz Parabolic 27dBi (35cm)
  • High Gain 10.5GHz Parabolic 35dBi (67cm)

These antennas are suitable either for Point to Point links, or for client site antennas for Point to Multipoint applications.

Longer range links can be implemented using the larger antennas.

Conversely, shorter links use the smaller antennas.

Comparison of 10.5GHz MIMO OFDM and 10.5GHz Microwave Technology

CableFree offers solutions for 10,5GHz in both MIMO OFDM and FOR3 Microwave ranges.  These differ in several ways:

  • Microwave is optimised for Point to Point only, longer range, Clear LOS, FDD Full Duplex Channel Plan.  Conversely:
  • MIMO OFDM radios offer Near-LOS capability, P2P, P2MP and Mesh modes, and lower costs of implementation
