Ultra Rugged

Carrier grade IP67 design allows the B5 and the B5c to withstand the harshest of environmental conditions


Just Mount and Go

The integrated high gain antenna, and super easy quick mount lets you install the B5 in minutes, and accurately aim it with your smartphone via Wi-Fi.‡

Easily add New Links

Typical backhaul solutions waste spectrum with every link installed and impacting network capacity. Unique high precision GPS Sync technology allows Mimosa B5 and B5c products to reuse the same channel network wide, and up to 4 links can auto-coordinate. b5_addnewlinks

Double Reliability

Unlicensed spectrum can be unpredictable. So Mimosa custom engineered unique multi-channel and auto-everything technology to protect your links when you encounter interference. The B5 and B5c automatically keep your links up with two independent operating channels, and adapting using our auto-everything technology to resolve problems proactively to deliver optimal link speed and reliability. It’s like 2 smart links in a single radio!

Incredibly Fast. Incredibly Flexible.

Awarded the fastest unlicensed backhaul in the industry, the B5 and B5c also provide extensive bandwidth control options. Dynamic modes automatically adapt with traffic demand and provide ultra low ~1ms link latency for sensitive voice and video communications services. While reserved bandwidth and GPS sync modes allow symmetric or 75/25 traffic direction reservation.

Monitor With Ease, And So Much More

Immediately after install, your links are ready to be monitored via the free Mimosa Cloud service. With vast data collection and analysis, assessing link health and identifying potential problems has never been easier. moniter@2x
