Edge Connectivity for the Home and Enterprise
Physical and natural barriers are difficult for high-frequency spectrum bands to penetrate. These high-frequency signals lose power causing performance degradation. High-frequency signals include 5G, Wi-Fi 6 and future 6G services. While these frequency bands can deliver ultra-low latency and higher bandwidth for advanced applications, they also lose significant signal strength going through physical barriers including glass, wood and concrete, and environmental barriers like foliage and trees.
PHYTunes products are designed to support a universe of possibilities by delivering the full connectivity experience inside beyond barriers and without limits.
Neptune 5G Solution
PHYTunes’ patented technology enables transporting 5G signals over the existing wireline cables and then emitting them close to the user device. Because the 5G signal goes around barriers within a building, users receive a high signal strength and therefore a significantly enhanced user experience. A single-wire bi-directional transmission technology, PHYTunes’ 5G solution consists of two units — the headend IF node (Neptune) interfaces with the carrier’s 5G baseband unit. Neptune then modulates the 5G signal and transports it over the building’s physical wiring (such as ethernet, coaxial, and fiber). This signal then terminates at several satellite RF nodes (Tritons) where it is broadcasted as a secure and strong 5G signal to all the indoor smartphones, tablets and IoT devices. The return signal from these endpoints is similarly captured by the Tritons and sent to Neptune and then back to the 5G baseband unit.
Saturn Wi-Fi Solution
PHYTunes’ Saturn solution delivers and extends coverage of High-Frequency Wi-Fi 6/7 signals in homes or business, traveling around barriers and utilizing existing in-building wiring such as twisted pair, coax, Cat5 and Cat6. The patented solution blankets the entire area with a single frequency signal, eliminating the notion of handoffs between Access Points, reducing latency associated with multiple mesh hops and optimizing the utilization of bandwidth without unnecessary overhead. Implementing the Wi-Fi routing function in a single node (Saturn) and introducing the notion of RF Nodes — which are simple devices with 2X2 MIMO antennas (Atlases) — our solution increases coverage without conducting the complex routing function of a mesh Wi-Fi, reducing the cost of deployment and providing a stable, secure, low-cost solution both as a main Wi-Fi system and as augmentation to an existing one.
