Compact and powerful, the A5x is built for short to long-range pole and tower point-to-multipoint (PTMP) applications. In situations where the power and range of the 4x4 A5c access point isn't needed, the connectorized, 2x2 A5x is the perfect solution.
Max PTMP (IP) Throughput
5.15–5.85 or 4.9–6.4GHz
Finding the right access points that offer affordability, without compromising quality and performance, has been a dilemma. The A5x changes that. It's the ideal solution whether you're starting a new network or expanding coverage, all while achieving faster ROI.
Breaking the barriers to entry, the A5x is a connectorized, 2x2 access point that delivers fiber-like speeds of up to 700 Mbps (IP).
With new spectrum becoming available in both 4.9 and 6 GHz, the wide frequency of the A5x (4.9–6.4 GHz with the ROW product) will allow affordable access to more low-noise spectrum for increased speeds and reliability—especially paired with SRS (GPS sync) for channel reuse.
The A5x, with its die-cast aluminum metal backing, is designed and built to withstand the harshest outdoor elements.
While almost any 2x2 3rd party antenna will work with the A5x, the Mimosa N5-45x2 comes most recommended. Get all the ground coverage of a sector, along with the sidelobe rejection of a horn.
The A5x supports 5150–5850 MHz in the U.S. (FCC), Europe (ETSI), and Canada (CA). For rest of world (ROW), the A5x supports 4900–6400 MHz.
The connectorized A5x works with most 2x2 3rd party antennas, as well as Mimosa's N5-45x2 sector.
Due to the fact that the A5x is a 2x2 access point, beamforming is not a feature. Anyone interested in beamforming should look into the 4x4 A5c.
The A5x has a cost advantage over the A5c, making it easier to expand or start a new network, and get quicker ROI. If the 4x4, beamforming power of the A5c isn't necessary, the A5x is a great solution.
The A5x is a short to long-range access point. Many environmental factors, including the antenna being used, go into calculating link distance, which is different for every operator. The Network Design Tool, can help provide a better picture—it’s free and very easy to model a PTMP link: https://mimosa.co/design-tool
It is not recommended to use an A5x without an antenna.
