MX-HUB is a fully-managed all-in-one 4G/5G networking platform with a backhauling. It has a small, compact and portable form factor, making it possible to integrate/embed it in your system. Download MX-HUB Data Sheet

The MX-HUB is a feature-rich 4G/5G node with four variants:

  1. 4G/5G terminal-in-a-Box (TIB): It is a 4G LTE UEs and 5G NR UEs (MX-UE) in one box, allowing simultaneous multi-connectivity to different 4G and 5G networks. It supports both software-based 4G/5G UE stack as well as chipset.

  2. 4G/5G network-in-a-box (NIB): It is an all in one box 4G LTE eNB and 5G NR gNB (MX-RAN), 4G EPC and 5GC, and IMS, forming a fully managed mobile private network (MPN). You can forward traffic between 4G and 5G networks in the same box.

  3. 4G/5G Router: It combines (1) and (2) to interconnect (meshing) different 4G/5G NIBs and route among them. TIB is used to provide 4G/5G backhauling between different NIB.

  4. 4G/5G embedded: it is a MX-HUB platform development kit with root access allowing to embed/integrate MX-HUB as a subsystem into another system (e.g. drones, robots, UAV).

  5. 4G/5G Tester: It allows 3rd part network and terminal testing featuring rich APIs, selective logging and filtering 3GPP LTE and NR stacks, and integrated traffic generators (ping, iPerf, VOIP, and HTTP transfer. IT also simulates various channel conditions with the embedded channel simulator for realistic scenarios.

  1. Software-based Design with flexible configuration – Bandwidth, Band, Frequency, etc.
  2. Higher data rate up to 600 Mbps in downlink and 100Mbps in uplink
  3. O-RAN E2 and O1 interface with RIC and xApp
  4. Centralized Operation and Management systems
  5. High availability and resiliency
  6. Battery Powered (9V to 24V DC full range)
  7. Customizable form factor and closure.
  8. Cloud integration
