G1 is the world's first instance of next-generation fixed wireless access (ngFWA) — a new technology designed from the ground-up to deliver fiber-class broadband at scale, even in challenging non-line-of-sight conditions. Equipped with unprecedented interference cancellation, the G1 platform maintains high-performance in licensed or unlicensed spectrum. More than 200 operators in 21 countries and 45 US states have now embraced G1 in their live commercial networks.

G1 Platform

The G1 platform includes base nodes (BNs, each a single integrated package that includes antennas, PAs, several teraflops of digital signal processing, managed Ethernet switching, and 10G optical network interfaces) and remote nodes (RNs, Tarana’s “customer premise equipment”). Up to 256 RNs can simultaneously connect to each BN. For more information about Tarana’s base nodes and remote nodes, refer to the G1 data sheet.

The Technology

G1’s unrivaled performance is powered by a number of industry firsts in wireless technology that were driven directly by our first-principles, clean-sheet approach to fully addressing the core problems that have handicapped all prior attempts at fixed wireless access.

Distributed Massive MIMO

Large numbers of radios on both the BN and RN increase precision of all algorithms and enable more complex & accurate techniques (O(n3) rather than just O(n)).

Perfect Multipath Integration

Applying signal processing across time, frequency, and spatial domains yields a perfect channel even with the most complex diffraction, reflection, and motion effects; this enables the G1 platform to deliver excellent performance despite nLoS and NLoS conditions (buildings, foliage).

Asynchronous Burst Interference Cancelation (ABIC)

Cancels up to 40 dB of asynchronous interference from any source outside the network. The before & after graphic shows how the ABIC innovation extracts the 256-QAM constellation from the noise, with each bit of the signal (represented by dots) is crisp and cleanly transmitted.

Tarana Cloud Suite

The Tarana Cloud Suite (TCS) is our cloud-hosted system used to monitor, manage, and troubleshoot Tarana base and remote nodes. TCS makes it easy to plan, install, provision, and manage G1 radio networks. It provides network management, business operations, and control-plane functions summarized below. As a cloud-based offering, TCS has been implemented with industry best practices around high availability and redundancy, data security, and automatic scaling.

bullet point arrow Periodic 3rd-party penetration testing ensures continued TCS security (following the PTES, OWASP, and NIST 800-115 standards)

Real World Results​

G1 is incredibly fast.

G1’s real-world performance is now well proven. A sample of 50,000 live commercial links, shows the technology delivering unparalleled performance averaging 414/109 Mbps DL/UL despite NLoS conditions and high interference.

G1 just works, even in challenging real-world conditions.

Sample deployments from four of our leading customers – Visionary Broadband, Nextlink Internet, DigitalPath, and Resound Networks – in very different geographies further highlight the commercial success of the G1 platform. There are two key takeaways from their experiences:

  • G1 easily supports over 150 RNs per sector, with over 90% of links able to receive 400 Mbps DL service despite link obstructions (both nLoS and NLoS).
  • G1 delivers unprecedented performance on both the CBRS and the free-to-use 5 GHz unlicensed band.
G1 is highly scalable.

As operators’ deployments advance to multi-cell installations in the same markets, the G1 platform also enables unparalleled scale potential and universal 360° coverage through its inter-cell interference cancellation, even enabling all radio elements (both base and remote nodes) to operate in a single spectrum band (k=1 frequency reuse). The live example below shows G1’s inter-cell interference cancelation proven out in commercial deployment.
