RAD's Airmux-5000i: Redefining PtMP Wireless

Airmux-5000i Redefining PtMP Wireless

Wireless service providers continuously strive to increase network capacity to serve more subscribers with higher capacity. However, service providers, operating in 3.5GHz licensed bands are challenged by lack of spectrum and the moderate capacity of existing WiMAX Point-to-MultiPoint systems. Service providers operating Point-to-MultiPoint in license-exempt bands also find it hard to deliver SLA due to the adverse effects of signal interference from 3rd party systems.

RAD’s Airmux-5000i

Looking to redefine the performance of broadband wireless access, RAD’s Airmux-5000i, a Point to MultiPoint solution with disruptive smart beamforming was introduced to the market.

What is Beamforming?

Airmux-5000i beamforming solution is formed from an array of antenna elements that are combined to generate a narrow and steerable beam for increased system gain, ultimately boosting capacity and range.

Airmux-5000i​ Main Value in a Nut Shell

Interference immunity is greatly improved as a result of replacing the wide beam of common sector antennas with a narrow beam.

Together with Airmux’ unique air interface , Airmux-5000i assures SLA-services in noisy  spectrum, where conventional solutions fail to operate.

In typical Point-to-MultiPoint deployments with a wide beam antenna, adjacent beam sectors overlap creating a high level of self-interference that reduces user capacity.

Unlike typical sector antennas, Airmux-5000i narrow beam reduces self-interference between adjacent sectors and nearby sites to a minimum, achieving greater network capacity through unmatched frequency reuse.

When Line-of-Sight conditions are compromised, Airmux-5000i smart beamforming antenna automatically chooses the optimal beam direction for the best link over a reflection or diffraction path, empowering service providers with wider coverage and better infrastructure utilization.

Airmux Lead the SCB with Airmux-5000i

Airmux-5000i has been selected and commercially deployed by leading carriers worldwide.

Smooth Migration to Airmux-5000i

Service providers that are new to Airmux can easily upgrade their networks to Airmux-5000i for best industry performance. 

Service providers already operating Airmux-5000 solutions can seamlessly boost network performance by deploying Airmux-5000i base stations that are backward compatible with existing Airmux-5000 subscriber units.


Airmux-5000i is a superior and future-proof Point-to-MultiPoint solution for wireless access and backhaul connectivity.

If you’re looking to grow your network Airmux-5000i is the way to go!
