ISP delivers fiber-fast speeds to rural and urban users in Costa Calida and Costa Blanca
An economical and high-speed end-to-end solution with backhaul, client and access devices to connect local businesses and residences to nearby fiber feed
Customers are seeing reliable fiber-fast speeds
Deployed Mimosa B5 backhaul radios, Mimosa C5 client devices, Mimosa A5 access points and Mimosa A5c connectorized devices and C5c connectorized client radios
With a growing customer base and increasing subscriber demand, aeromax designed its new 5G high-speed network to run in parallel with its existing network. Named “aeromax f: fiber over the air” , the network utilizes Mimosa hybrid fiber-wireless (HFW) technology in both GigaPoP and MicroPoP architectures. The aeromax GigaPoPs are tower deployments using Mimosa A5c connectorized access points and C5c connectorized client radios to service subscribers over a large geography. In high-density neighborhoods, aeromax’s MicroPoP hub locations use Mimosa A5 access points connecting to Mimosa C5 client devices to serve residential subscribers. In these neighborhoods, strategically-located homeowners agree to serve as hub homes in exchange for discounted service, a strategy which enables aeromax to scale quickly and effectively without the need for tower rentals or third party assets. Coupled with the upgrade of its backbone infrastructure running on high-capacity links and fiber optic fallbacks in n-Gbps design, aeromax is able to deliver very high speeds to their customers.
“We are thrilled with the reliability, throughput, and speeds of the Mimosa gear,” said Stephan Bergmann, CEO of aeromax. “With Mimosa, we have achieved amazing quality of service results on our “aeromax f” 5G offering, and our customers are even more amazed with the stability and speed. Mimosa’s fiber-fast speeds have also enabled us to win against the 4G/LTE services in licensed spectrum.”

For aeromax, Mimosa’s HFW architecture significantly improves the time to market and lowers the costs involved with providing service to subscribers. And Mimosa’s proprietary Spectrum Reuse Synchronization (SRS) technology leverages advancements in Massive MIMO and antenna beamforming to scale wireless networks with expanded capacity and bandwidth. Precise time coordination of network-wide transmissions eliminates the interference caused by nearby radios. As a result, a single access point can efficiently reuse channels rather than wasting precious spectrum.
aeromax chose to use RF elements’ Symmetrical Horn Carrier Class antennas together with Mimosa’s A5c connectorized access points. With a wider elevation pattern than a traditional sector antenna, the combined solution is a good fit for hilly terrain, projecting signals to more homes more effectively.
“We are amazed at how easy and accurate RF elements’ new horn technology is. Aiming and installation are simple. For aeromax, it’s the perfect solution to deploy. And coupled with our existing wireless network, Mimosa’s 5G gear is rapid, safe and precise,” said Stephan Bergmann.
“Our customers are amazed with the increased stability and speed”
Originally from Germany, Stephan Bergmann moved to Spain and founded aeromax in 1997, first introducing broadband solutions for rural areas in 2005. The company currently employs a staff of 16 people including customer support, installation and maintenance. Breaking into the Spanish market was initially difficult, but the Costa Blanca region is rich in expat communities and tourism businesses, and the company has established a reputation of providing excellent service. As it grows, the company continues to reinvest its profits into the network to make it bigger, more stable, more reliable, and in Bergmann’s words, “just amazing.”
“We are excited to work with aeromax,” said Brian Hinman, CEO, Mimosa Networks. “It’s gratifying to see service providers embrace our vision of delivering fiber-fast speeds and make it a reality for their customers in cities around the world.”
Moving forward, aeromax is planning to continue its partnership with Mimosa as it expands its 5G network with the addition of another 1,000 subscribers in the coming year.
