Echo 5G: Portal between Indoor and Outdoor Worlds
The Pivotal Echo 5G™ is a self-installable, on-the-window, precision beamforming repeater designed to counteract mmWave penetration, reflection, and structural shadowing losses so it can gently flood an interior with native mmWave signal. Essentially, the Echo 5G acts as a portal between indoor and outdoor worlds.
For fixed wireless access (FWA) providers serving homes and enterprises, the Echo 5G facilitates Gigabit speeds and introduces superior broadband choice and experience to cable and DSL end users. For 5G connected devices, the Echo 5G enables outdoor-to-indoor signal transitions so users can ubiquitously enjoy the immersive 5G experiences that only mmWave capacity can deliver.
The Echo 5G product line accomplishes this using Pivotal’s patented Holographic Beam Forming® (HBF) technology whose cost, size, weight and power consumption (C-SWaP) profile is significantly lower than phased array beamformers; specifically, an order of magnitude less cost, less than half the weight and less than one third the power consumption.
With HBF, Echo 5G overcomes a major obstacle to cost-effectively delivering 5G broadband access to homes and businesses with mmWave – in-building penetration.
