Mimosa NetPoint | NetPoint
Perfect cost-benefit combination for your wireless link in WISP and NetPoint Antenna applications.
Lic. Veronica Hernandez

Due to the great success of the Mimosa™ Networks C5c super economical connectorised backhaul radio, it has positioned itself as the best choice for transmitting super high speed internet in WISP applications at the lowest cost, achieving links up to 100 km distance or more, depending on the dish antenna used. Now many manufacturers have designed satellite dishes for the C5c radio for a variety of applications.

Without a doubt NetPoint Antennas are the perfect marriage with Mimosa Networks products see the NetPoint NP line.

The C5c radios are very aesthetically pleasing, super small, lightweight, high quality and powerful in performance. They can deliver real bandwidth up to 500 Mbps+ of TCP throughput and best of all, without any licensing to increase bandwidth. It is also the only radio on the market capable of transmitting over such a wide frequency range, working from 4.9 to 6.4 GHz, more than 500 MHz of available spectrum.

They are technically equipped, have on-air traffic management to control and optimise the download and upload bandwidth, according to the need of the project.
To mention a few examples:

1. If we need to have a fully symmetrical link with equal download and upload bandwidth, we can manage the radio with 50% download and 50% upload.
1. If we need to have an asymmetrical link with higher download bandwidth for internet transmission, we can manage the radio with 75% pure download and only 25% upload (ideal for WISP internet systems).
3. If we need to have an asymmetric link with higher upload bandwidth for video transmission, we can manage the radio with 25% download and 75% pure upload (ideal for video surveillance systems).
4. If we need the traffic to be adjusted in upload or download constantly, don't worry, the C5c can be managed in automatic mode, which will adapt to the need of the traffic direction at all times.

PTP Links in Oil Zones | Por Luis David Alvarez 

During the 1970s, oil companies from all over the world, both private and state-owned, began to invest in technologies whose purpose was to exploit hydrocarbon deposits on the seabed, reaching depths that were unimaginable at the time. Now, as part of these circumstances, communications have become the backbone to stay in tune on land, as well as to maintain communication with exploration vessels, robots and other connectivity solutions. Nowadays, it has become a challenge to establish a stable internet connection on platforms that can be fixed or floating, which makes it difficult to establish stable internet links, as there are only two ways to make this connection.

The first is satellite connectivity, considered by experts to be the only viable way, as they are located on the high seas, in some cases in remote places and lacking other types of connectivity, but there is a little explored possibility that will undoubtedly revolutionise the market. Traditional PTP (Point-to-Point) links are becoming spearheads in spaces that are technically feasible because some of these oil rigs are located at distances of 18-34km offshore and have seen the viability of working with NetPoint's high-profit products to help rid the Fresnel as well as provide project durability thanks to the adaptations that have been made to maintain resistance against salinity as well as ensuring that these installations do not generate sparks to avoid human disasters. Models such as NP and NPTR in their 34, 37 Dbi gain versions have achieved transmitting power due to their stability, but height is also needed to win the fight against the sea.

Today, thanks to NetPoint's compatibility with specialised brands such as Cambium NetWorks, Mimosa NetWorks has made it possible to generate links with greater stability than the satellite links themselves, thanks to the fact that the latency of the reception time of the services is not compromised, It is important to mention that many of these spaces work on a seasonal or permanent basis, ranging from 200 to 400 workers, depending on the platform.

At NetPoint we are prepared to help link with projects that provide a strong backhaul and above all that the conditions are never left unstudied. Using NetPoint in these solutions will be an indispensable weapon against satellite latency.
