BLiNQ Networks Inc., a pioneer in small cell wireless backhaul solutions, has introduced a small cell backhaul solution for mobile networks.
The newly launched X-100 is the first product in BLiNQ's Small Cell Backhaul Suite of solutions.
Officials with BLiNQ Networks said the X-100 is a rapidly scalable self-organizing system that eliminates capacity hotspots.
"The X-100 is the first product that we are introducing as part of BLiNQ's Backhaul Suite," Mickey Miller, CEO and president of BLiNQ Networks, said in a statement.
"Our patent-pending software solves a number of capacity challenges in the enterprise, telecom, and mobile infrastructures," said Miller.
BLiNQ's X-100 systems, which use innovative non-line-of-sight (NLOS) and point-to-multipoint technologies, provide a ubiquitous and cost-effective solution for heterogeneous network deployments. Thanks to this, operators are now able to deploy small cells exactly where they are needed while significantly reducing the time and expense associated with traditional backhaul solutions.
Company officials claimed that the X-100, which is easy to install, provides 30 percent cost savings over line-of-sight microwave and millimeter wave solutions, as well as 55 percent cost savings compared to fiber optic backhaul.
The X100 is available in both low-cost licensed and non-exclusive licensed spectrum.
Earlier in September, BLiNQ Networks had announced that it raised an additional $10 million in funding.
BLiNQ will use the funding to expand and accelerate global sales and marketing efforts, as well as the ongoing development of BLiNQ’s patent-pending, high-capacity mobile transport solutions. The round was funded by BLiNQ’s strong syndicate, including BDC Venture Capital, New Venture Partners (News - Alert) and Summerhill Venture Partners.
The explosion of mobile data, consumer video and social networking traffic on smartphones and other mobile devices has created massive demand for capacity in mobile networks. To meet that demand, mobile operators are deploying small cell base stations in urban and suburban environments.
Traditional mobile backhaul solutions cannot cost effectively scale to solve the problem of providing ubiquitous bandwidth.
BLiNQ Networks, a technology carve-out of Nortel (News - Alert) Networks, has defined a new category of non line-of-site (NLOS) backhaul technology, specifically designed for small cell transport. Unlike alternative solutions, BLiNQ solutions can be deployed anywhere in minutes with one truck roll and one technician. The solution is self-organizing and very reliable as it continually self-optimizes to adapt to the changing environment.
