Airspan Product Innovation Continues - Significant Project Wins With Two Major Network Operators for New Groundbreaking Products
BOCA RATON, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Airspan Networks Inc., a subsidiary of Airspan Networks Holdings Inc. (NYSE American: MIMO), a U.S.-based provider of ground-breaking, disruptive software and hardware for mobile and fixed network operators has recently received two major customer orders for its new products for Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) and 5G.
The company received its first order in excess of $10 million for the new A6/B6x FWA broadband access and backhaul platform. A gigabit-speed FWA point-to-multipoint (PTMP) and point-to-point (PTP) solution that improves performance, scaling and reliability, featuring up to 7 Gbps throughput for outdoor broadband networks and 5G backhaul infrastructure. This solution, which will also feature the C6x radio client, is a new Airspan milestone, providing fiber-like speeds for major Mobile Network Operator 5G network rollouts, as well as last mile solutions for Mobile and Fixed carriers as well as wireless internet service providers (WISPs), bringing fiber-like connectivity to residences and enterprise and industrial premises at a fraction of the cost.

With the importance of gigabit the 6 Series provides network operators the ability to deliver network performance with fiber speeds, at a vastly lower cost point than either fiber or conventional microwave or millimeter wave backhaul architectures. On the mobile network side, our distinctive Open RAN infrastructure products continue to propel the evolution of cost leading network architectures."
