|    Ultra High Capacity Ethernet Backhaul


MIMOtech's Ultra High Capacity Product Family MIMOtech released the StarBurst Janus product in 2013 as the first of a new range of line of sight (LOS) MIMO Ultra High Capacity Backhaul products. The StarBurst Janus combines patented line of sight MIMO, spatial multiplexing and software definable radio techniques to bring a new approach to ultra high capacity backhaul.

The Janus is available in a number of operational configurations depending on the network operator spectrum licensing requirements:

Mode Channel Pairs (go/return) Required Max BW Max Throughput
2x2 MIMO TDD 1 56 MHz 560 Mbps
2x2 MIMO FDD 1 56 MHz 700 Mbps
2+0 FDD 2 56 MHz 1400 Mbps
4x4 MIMO FDD 1 56 MHz 1400 Mbps


The Janus is initially released for the 23 GHz licensed and 24 GHz unlicensed bands with up to a 4x4 MIMO capability. Further releases will bring additional frequencies, higher order MIMO options and increased spectral efficiencies.
