BLiNQ Networks Launches Field Trials With Small Cell Backhaul Solution

Non-Line-of-Sight Solution Is Highly Reliable and Drives Down LTE Deployment Costs

PLANO, TX--(Marketwire - Apr 23, 2012) - BLiNQ Networks Inc., the pioneer in small cell wireless backhaul solutions, today announced that it completed two field trials; one with a tier one global mobile operator and another with a fixed access provider in Europe. Additional trials in North America and Europe are scheduled in Q2 2012. The trial results have confirmed that BLiNQ's solution is highly scalable, reliable and very cost-effective. BLiNQ will be showcasing their solution at International CTIA WIRELESS® 2012 conference being held in New Orleans, LA on May 8-10, 2012, at booth # 2560.

"This is a major milestone for our company," said Mickey Miller, President and CEO at BLiNQ Networks. "Unlike traditional solutions that are trying to retrofit sub optimized approaches to solve the small cell backhaul challenge, we have designed our solution from the beginning to be flexible, reliable and economically compelling in the demanding small cell backhaul use case. BLiNQ's plug-and-play design and patent-pending interference and spectrum management technology (MARA) is proving to be very attractive to operators by driving down the cost of adding capacity to mobile networks while increasing the scalability and reliability of existing networks."

Because of the rapid increase in demand, mobile sites in urban environments are reaching their capacity creating coverage dead zones and capacity hotspots. Mobile operators cannot scale cell sites rapidly or cost-effectively with existing fiber and microwave backhaul solutions because they are too expensive to implement or may not be feasible in all locations. The BLiNQ solution is very flexible and allows carriers to deploy capacity easily wherever they need it without limitations and reuse their valuable access spectrum.

BLiNQ Networks is defining small cell backhaul. The company's NLOS small-cell backhaul solution was specifically designed from the ground up for small cell backhaul. Unlike alternative solutions, BLiNQ can be deployed anywhere in minutes with one truck roll and one technician. The solution is self-organizing and is very reliable because it continually self-optimizes to adapt to its changing environment.
