Wireless technology has become an essential part of our everyday lives, and with our growing dependency on mobile and internet devices, it’s more important than ever to have a reliable and fast wireless connection. Dual-band technology is one of the key innovations that makes this possible.

What is Dual-Band Technology?

In simple terms, dual-band technology refers to the ability of mobile devices and wireless equipment to function in two different frequency bands. For example, a dual-band phone can support 0.85 GHz, 0.9 GHz and 1.9 GHz, while dual-band wireless routers and Wi-Fi adapters can contain both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. Dual-band technology offers a powerful and reliable connection that surpasses the limitations of single-band technology. With greater bandwidth and signal reach, users can enjoy lightning-fast internet speeds, even when multiple devices are connected to the same network. Additionally, dual-band technology enables users to roam farther from their wireless access point (WAP) without losing connectivity, offering the freedom and mobility to move around without sacrificing performance.

Whether you’re streaming, gaming or simply browsing the web, dual-band technology provides a superior connectivity solution that delivers unparalleled speed, range and reliability.

The Rise of Dual-Band Technology

Dual-band technology has become increasingly popular over the past few years, and it’s easy to see why. With the latest Wi-Fi hardware offering dual-band compatibility and band steering capabilities, users can enjoy a wireless experience that’s truly unmatched. This smart technology allows users to jump back and forth between frequencies depending on their connectivity needs, providing superior flexibility and performance. Technology companies are constantly striving to push the boundaries of network performance, and dual-band technology is a testament to this innovative spirit.  On the other hand in 3GPP , dual band is widely used either to aggregate spectrum assets into a single communication pipe or in case of LAA to provide a complementary mix of licensed spectrum and unlicensed spectrum to result in great download speeds.

Understanding the Difference between Frequency Bands

When is comes to unlicensed and shared spectrum, most popular two frequency bands to consider when talking about dual-band technology are Wi-Fi bands :  2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. Each band has its own unique benefits, however, they differ in a few areas. While 2.4 GHz provides superior coverage, 5 GHz provides larger channels thus has faster upload and download speeds. 2.4 GHz longer waves enable excellent transmission over long distances and through obstacles such as buildings. Alternatively, 5 GHz is perfect for high-bandwidth devices and can overcome interference from neighbouring networks. The beauty of dual-band technology is that it offers the best of both frequencies so that users can enjoy both coverage and speed without having to compromise on either.

Why Choose BLiNQ Networks for Your Dual-Band Technology Needs

At BLiNQ Networks, we understand that in today’s world, a fast and reliable internet connection is essential for both rural and urban communities. First BLiNQ dual band solution is great because doesn’t need access to license spectrum and operates over CBRS and unlicensed spectrum. CBRS has good coverage and 5 GHz present good capacity options. That’s why we’ve created three cutting-edge dual-band solutions that are designed to provide fast and secure connectivity no matter where you are located. Our FWC-133-3550, FW-300i LAA and FW-600 LAA outdoor base stations offer carrier redundancy and greater flexibility for those in need of higher capacity.

We added to the dual band solution a lot of LTE and Wi-Fi smart features to produce a reliable connection even when the spectrum is shared or unlicensed.

Why is Dual-Band Superior to Other Types of Technology and Who Can Benefit from It?

Dual-band technology is a connectivity game-changer, providing superior performance and reliability for anyone seeking a top-of-the-line network solution.  BLINQ Dual Band solution combines best of 4G/5G and Wi-Fi worlds:

  • Usage of free spectrum
  • Reliability of CBRS
  • Capacity of 5 GHz
  • Link resilience of 4G
  • Dynamic Adaptation of Wi-Fi

How Our Network Solutions Differ from Our Competitors:

The main differentiator to start with is that BLiNQ solution is a SW defined solution that can operate as:

  • CBRS 4G > 2 x 20 MHz CBRS solution where desired
  • CBRS LAA > combine CBRS and unlicensed band as 3 x 20 MHz solution.
  • LTE-U > 2 x 20 LTE-U solution where CBRS is not available or suspended because incumbent activity.

The BLiNQ solution has inline interference sensors and capability to negotiate with SAS therefore it will dynamically transition to best operational configuration.

It is the only commercial solution that combines CBRS and 5 GHz bands.

In addition to cognitive radio features, the BLiNQ solution self adapts to environment by dynamically changing operational channels function of interference and spectrum availability. Thus the BLiNQ solution will always operate on the best available spectrum without the need for configuration or external intervention.
