Broadband 16T x 16R MIMO Faros® Remote Radio Head

Faros® distributed Remote Radio Head (RRH) unit for wideband 50 – 3800 MHz Massive MIMO and array signal processing applications.


Built on an agile software-defined radio (SDR) architecture, the broadband 16T x 16R MIMO Faros RRH can operate on all licensed and unlicensed frequencies between 100 – 6000 MHz without filtering or band-specific amplification. Whether using the broadband Faros RRH for Massive MIMO rapid prototyping, 6G prototyping with external components, or using the agile platform for array signal processing applications, the broadband Faros RRH is an integrated MIMO platform that will scale to any size application that doesn’t require high-power amplification or built-in band filters.
