BLiNQ Introduces Small Cell Backhaul Solution for Mobile Networks

X-100 Is First in a Suite That Helps Operators Deliver High Bandwidth Data Services Cost-Effectively

PLANO, TX--(Marketwire - Nov 13, 2012) -  BLiNQ Networks Inc., the pioneer in small cell wireless backhaul solutions, today launched the X-100, the first product in BLiNQ's Small Cell Backhaul Suite of solutions. The X-100 is a rapidly scalable self-organizing system that eliminates capacity hotspots. Using innovative non-line-of-sight (NLOS) and point-to-multipoint technologies, BLiNQ's X-100 systems provide a ubiquitous and cost effective solution for heterogeneous network deployments. Operators are now able to deploy small cells exactly where they are needed while significantly reducing the time and expense associated with traditional backhaul solutions.

BLiNQ's patent pending solution provides carriers an easy-to-deploy, highly scalable backhaul service wherever they need to add capacity to meet the insatiable bandwidth demands of the mobile consumer. The solution is self-configuring and implements interference management technology to maximize capacity and reliability of wireless backhaul in true non-line-of-sight conditions.

The X-100 is a very cost effective solution providing 30% cost savings over line-of-sight microwave and millimeter wave solutions as well as 55% cost savings as compared to fiber optical backhaul. The solution is easily installed in less than 15 minutes by a single technician and is self-configuring, further reducing long term operating costs. The solution offers breakthrough capacity of 83 Mbps in 10 MHz bandwidth channel.

"The X-100 is the first product that we are introducing as part of BLiNQ's Backhaul Suite," said Mickey Miller, CEO and President of BLiNQ Networks. "Our patent-pending software solves a number of capacity challenges in the enterprise, telecom, and mobile infrastructures."

BLiNQ is rapidly gaining industry-wide recognition for its innovative small cell backhaul solution. The company was also recently named to the annual FierceWireless, "Fierce 15" list, designating it as one of the top privately-held wireless companies of the year.

The X100 is available in both low-cost licensed and non-exclusive licensed spectrum.
