About OmniMAX - technical details in brief

OmniMAX is composed of an Indoor unit (IDU) that has a leading capacity of 3 protected MIMO sectors using only a 1U form factor and a high power radio Outdoor unit (ODU) with beamforming capability. OmniMAX supports advanced antenna system (AAS) techniques; Maximal Ratio Combining (MRC), 2x2 MIMO-A for link robustness and MIMO-B for increased capacity.

Each Base Station unit will be available in either optical or electrical OBSAI interface variants. The compact design, in combination with the very low power dissipation of the system and the IDU-ODU interface flexibility, creates an attractive offering for the operator who requires optimization of site OpEx and backhauling costs.
