The emergence of 5G technology has brought about significant advancements in mobile connectivity, and small cell network infrastructure plays a vital role in realizing its full potential. Small cells are compact wireless access points that are strategically deployed in densely populated areas to enhance network capacity and coverage.
Our CIMERA radomes are designed to effectively protect 5G millimeter wave small cell antennas from environmental factors like rain, dust, and extreme temperatures while maintaining excellent RF transparency. The radomes can be customized to meet specific antenna designs and electromagnetic and mechanical requirements, ensuring optimization for various 5G millimeter wave applications such as fixed wireless access, small cell backhaul, and mobile broadband.
Furthermore, CIMERA® radomes can be tailored in various shapes and sizes, including flat and curved designs, offering increased flexibility in the design and deployment of 5G millimeter wave antenna systems. They can also be painted to blend with the surrounding environment, making them suitable for urban and residential areas.
As 5G technology continues to evolve, CIMERA® radomes will play an important role in high-performance networks, offering advantages such as enhanced antenna protection, improved RF performance, and design flexibility.
Fixed wireless access (FWA)
Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) is a groundbreaking application of 5G technology that enables high-speed broadband connectivity without the need for traditional wired infrastructure. With FWA, users can access fast and reliable internet services using wireless connections, providing a flexible and cost-effective solution for both urban and rural areas.
By leveraging the power of 5G networks, FWA offers gigabit-level speeds and low latency, rivaling or even surpassing wired broadband connections. It eliminates the need for physical cables, allowing internet service providers to quickly deploy broadband services to underserved regions or areas with limited infrastructure.
Our CIMERA® radomes are commonly used in 5G fixed wireless access (FWA) applications. The high frequency mmWave signals in 5G FWA demand precise transmission and reception capabilities, which our radomes provide. They are highly RF transparent, crucial for efficient 5G mmWave signal transmission. Additionally, they are rugged and weather-resistant for outdoor 5G FWA deployment. Radome shapes and sizes can be customized to suit various 5G FWA equipment requirements and can be painted to blend with the environment. These factors make CIMERA® radomes an excellent choice for 5G FWA applications.
Shrouds and concealments
The use of CIMERA® radomes for concealments and shrouds to hide mmWave radios is a great example of the versatility and adaptability of our product. With the increasing demand for small cell infrastructure, it’s essential to find solutions that not only meet technical requirements but also seamlessly blend with the surroundings. CIMERA® radomes can be designed to conceal radios while maintaining RF transparency and performance.
Their adjustable frequency range and high bandwidth design are particularly useful, allowing the concealment of various radio types simultaneously. This ability is especially valuable in areas where aesthetics matter, such as historic districts or upscale residential neighborhoods. By using CIMERA® radomes, carriers and municipalities can minimize the visual impact of small cell infrastructure while ensuring network coverage. Typically, these radomes have a cylindrical shape covering multiple radios on the inside, with the outer side customizable in color or artwork.
In summary, CIMERA® radomes used for concealment solutions in the 5G rollout exemplify our technology’s adaptability to diverse applications. Combining RF transparency, frequency range adjustability, and customizable design, CIMERA® concealment radomes offer an excellent solution for addressing the challenges in deploying small cell infrastructure.
Small Cell infrastructure
Small cell infrastructure is crucial for 5G network deployment, especially in densely populated areas where traditional macrocells may fall short in coverage and capacity. CIMERA® radomes are ideal for small cell architecture, as they offer necessary RF transparency, frequency range flexibility, and withstand harsh environmental conditions.
Furthermore, CIMERA® radomes can be tailored to seamlessly blend into the surrounding environment, making them suitable for urban settings where aesthetics and visual impact are crucial. Telecom providers can choose shape, size and color of the radomes to match their corporate colors, making them visually appealing while still providing the necessary protection for the radio equipment inside.
In addition to their role in 5G small cell architecture, CIMERA® radomes are also used in concealing macrocells and rooftop installations, improving the visual impact of wireless infrastructure while ensuring equipment protection
