Our Solution

Simplicity

Our design for G1 combines the ease of mobile macro-cellular radio access network deployment with a simple network architecture common in fixed access.

Simplicity

Our design for G1 combines the ease of mobile macro-cellular radio access network deployment with a simple network architecture common in fixed access.

G1 System Arch G1 System Arch

G1 is all about keeping it simple.  The platform includes compact 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) communicating with up to 256 similarly self-contained remote notes (RNs, our “customer premise equipment”) per BN.  RNs are powered over an Ethernet cable run into the structure they serve.  Since fixed access-network endpoints don’t need to support mobility and roaming, our enhanced version of the simple TR101 Broadband Forum standard can be used to greatly simplify both RAN and back-end infrastructure (no painful 3GPP core complexity and expense involved here).

Further, given autoconvergent beamforming on both ends of each link, G1 radios are much easier to install than prior FWA systems.  You just have to point them in roughly the direction of the BN, and the radios take care of the rest.  This autonomy and flexibility also supports cell densification without truck rolls to re-point previously-installed units.

The platform can operate in 3 or 5 GHz spectrum.

Big-Footprint Coverage and Capacity

G1’s long range and high capacity, even in the face of obstructions and unlicensed interference, enable rapid deployment and unprecedented deep market penetration at large scale, opening up whole new strategic possibilities for new entrants, fast relief from network obsolescence for incumbents, and faster, more efficient progress on digital divide initiatives.

Coverage Capacity Image Coverage Capacity Image

Up to 4 BNs can be deployed in a common 80 MHz channel on each tower in a network, delivering up to 9.6 Gbps of aggregate capacity per tower, and supporting up to 1,024 users.  G1’s precise management of self-interference (with nulls up to 50 dB deep) both within and between cells enables true k=1 deployment, giving operators the freedom to point BNs where the subscribers are, regardless of G1 nodes’ orientation on neighboring towers.

With multi-km range, even in 5 GHz, large metro markets can be penetrated quickly to forestall targeted competitive response — with typically 75% fewer towers than prior FWA solutions.  With tall towers in rural markets, the very broad (as in, many-mile) coverage they enable our BNs to deliver is already helping digital divide initiative spending achieve its goals much more quickly and cost efficiently.

Industry Firsts

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

Here’s an overview of the technical elements of Tarana’s clean-sheet approach to RAN design for FWA that actually works at the required scale and network economics.  In this public context, we can’t go into a lot of detail, but the notes below will help you get a sense of how our last 10 years of hardcore algorithm development have indeed set G1 apart from the rest of the pack.  We’ll also note that all this cool tech only matters if it delivers real-world results — which for G1 is demonstrably the case.  Be sure to visit our Impact page to learn more about the proof points we’ve gathered lately.

Unique Architecture Elements Performance Benefits
Distributed Massive MIMO

Large numbers of radios increase precision of all algorithms; an even balance between base and remote nodes makes more complex and accurate techniques ( O(n3) rather than just O(n) ) feasible

Precise digital beam- and null-forming on both Tx and Rx

The foundation of all that follows: extremely well-controlled distribution and reception of radio energy only where productive

Closed-loop beamforming adaptation

Collaboration between base and remote nodes further improves digital beamforming accuracy

3D equalization

Applying signal processing across time, frequency, and spatial domains yields a perfect channel even with the most complex diffraction, reflection, and motion effects

Autonomous, adaptive co-channel interference cancellation

Huge spectral efficiency gains through dense co-channel link operation

As noted above, our Impact page will help you see how all this translates into real-world results.
