About BLiNQ

BLiNQ Networks designs fixed wireless systems for the rural & suburban environments, and we strongly believe that 3GPP LTE has the best performance characteristics for rural connectivity at cost effective prices.

We do! You can head to our Support page for access to the Knowledge Base, to community forums, and to submit support tickets. Account creation is 100% free.

We supply both. BLiNQ Networks has a wide portfolio of CPE devices for both fixed and mobile networks.

BLiNQ Networks designs and manufactures equipment supporting LTE TDD bands 40/41/42/43/46 & 48, currently.

We are currently working to bring a Category 12, Indoor CPE to market.

Not specifically, though as LTE is a well defined standard, it is expected that the ecosystem for CBRS certified products will be large.

Not at this time.

Beamforming technology focuses a wireless signal towards a specific device, rather than having the signal spread in all directions from a broadcast antenna, as it normally would. The result is a more direct connection that is faster and more reliable than it would be without beamforming. Learn more.

The Units

Since BLiNQ’s system is fully compliant with 3GPP standard LTE, mobility is native in all units.

Yes. We have several maintenance packages that are recommended to help, with premium technical support and extended warranty.

In CBRS, a Spectrum Allocation Service (SAS) assigns frequencies based upon the request from the operator.

For non-CBRS deployments, frequencies are assigned by the operator.

Yes, our FW-300i, X-300iSC-300s and FW-600m are all full LTE base stations meeting 3GPP Release 13 standards.

LTE has great receiver sensitivity, and thus is extremely well suited to a NLOS deployment scenario. We have several customers using our equipment in NLOS deployments up to and beyond 5 miles.

Currently we only offer DOCSIS, since we draw both power & data from the HFC plant. A GPON solution would require an external power supply as well.

As of now, we only do Band 42 / 43, 46 & 48. All of our products are TDD only. We don’t support any FDD bands.

You can download a full spec sheet for all of our units on the Brochures page.
