Wisper ISP was one of Mimosa’s first B5 Backhaul adopters. The Wisper team used Mimosa’s B5 to connect a community near St. Louis, MO. The link originates at a fiber-fed tower with a 1 Gbps connection, and serves a community of 500-600 customers.
Wisper ISP plans to use the B5 on a tower in another location that is
also extremely constrained in spectrum availability. In order to upgrade capacity on this tower, five separate links all need to be upgraded at once and replaced with collocated B5s. “If you have ever done an upgrade like this before you know that it is very difficult. The B5’s GPS capabilities are a game changer, however, allowing us to do much more than ever before with the spectrum we have available,” said Stooke.
Upgrading this link with a B5 will leverage the massive spectrum re-use capability that the B5 brings with its GPS/GLONASS synchronization and advanced radio isolation.
