Low-UHF 16T x 16R MIMO Faros® Remote Radio Head

Faros® distributed Remote Radio Head (RRH) unit for TVWS and 700 MHz Massive MIMO.


The Faros Remote Radio Head, or Faros RRH, is part of the Faros family of last-mile connectivity solutions for internet service providers providing high-speed, point-to-multipoint (PtMP), non-line-of-sight (NLoS), bidirectional data over tens of kilometers. Its uniquely modular, distributed, and endlessly scalable physical and digital design draws on years of market-leading patented Massive MIMO research. Faros true Massive MIMO allows multiple Faros RRH units to be coherently combined for additional range and capacity, serving thousands of subscribers with up to 32 spatial streams and unprecedented in-field spectral efficiency.

Built on an agile software-defined radio architecture, the Television White Space (TVWS) 16T x 16R MIMO Faros RRH can operate on licensed and unlicensed UHF bands between 470 – 800 MHz and is designed to interoperate with Skylark’s fixed wireless Consumer Premises Equipment (CPEs) for high-speed, long-range Fixed Wireless Access (FWA).
