5G has poor indoor coverage where 85% of mobile traffic occurs. Our technology uses the existing wireline to transport signal indoors, providing the best user experience.

 

“Balancing Speed and Coverage: Navigating New Mobile Technologies”

Emerging mobile technologies, including cellular 5G and Wi-Fi 6/6E, harness high-frequency signals to deliver lightning-fast wireless communication. However, this speed comes at a cost: reduced coverage and limited signal penetration. The challenge lies in the vulnerability of 5G and Wi-Fi 6 signals to indoor barriers and obstacles. Despite these limitations, the focus remains on enhancing indoor coverage, where a significant 80% of data traffic occurs. Fortunately, a solution is now within reach.

Introducing PHYTunes MARS: Revolutionizing Wi-Fi and Indoor 5G for Optimum Distribution

PHYTunes has developed and patented a wireless wireline converged technology that uses existing cable infrastructure, such as cat5, cat6, fiber, and coax, to transport the 5G and Wi-Fi signals in buildings and distribute them for optimal coverage. It is called the Multipoint Antenna Replication System, or MARS. This innovative signal delivery architecture for indoor wireless uses a Single Frequency Network in buildings, which results in a coverage area up to 8 times larger without handoffs between RF Nodes. The result is stronger signals for end users, greatly enhancing the customer experience.

PHYTunes Solution: Distribute 5G indoor with Maximum Strength Using Existing Cables

Delivering 5G signal inside buildings with minimum loss and Lowest TCO: How it Works

PHYTunes has developed a patented technology that seamlessly transports 5G signals over existing wireline cables within buildings. These cables include ethernet, coaxial, and fiber connections. The process involves a single-wire, bi-directional transmission technique that aggregates incoming 5G signals, and then converts this to an Intermediate Frequency (IF) signal which then travels over the wire. At the other end of the wire, an RF tuner upconverts the IF back to the original 5G radio signal. This Wireline Wireless Integration (WWI) not only achieves significant cost savings but also enhances network security.

This 5G signal goes around disruptive barriers. It travels to the rooms inside a building, allowing high received signal strength at the user device and thereby significantly enhancing user experience by delivering on the promise of high bandwidth 5G communications. PHYTunes understands the value proposition of delivering high-speed 5G and Wi-Fi signals to mobile users inside buildings. We are working with leading service providers and private network builders worldwide to enhance the performance of these technologies in homes and businesses.

PHYTunes Advantages

  • 10x+ less expensive than alternative DAS and small cell solutions
  • Eco-friendly solution reusing existing wirelines
  • Higher utilization and reuse of valuable spectrum
  • Significant performance improvements over repeaters
  • Higher security due to signal containment in wirelines
  • Battery saving due to the shorter distance between the RF unit and the user device
The unique physical elements of modern buildings create an exceptionally unfriendly environment for delivering high-frequency Wi-Fi 6 at full strength. PHYTunes technology uses the existing wireline to transport signals indoors using a single frequency, providing an exceptional user experience.

Hight Frequency Wi-Fi Signals weaken within buildings due to obstacles and users’ movement, making them susceptible to interference.

PHYTunes’ Wi-Fi solution delivers the signal to users with a full-strength Single Frequency Network and no roaming disruptions.

A Low Latency, High Throughput Wi-Fi with Seamless Roaming: How it Works

PHYTunes’ Enterprise Wi-Fi system is a unique Wi-Fi signal delivery system with market-first capabilities, enabling it to support all performance and cost requirements for a new generation of applications, such as AR/VR, Autonomous Moving Robots (AMR), Metaverse, Industry 4, Live Streaming, and all Latency Sensitive Applications.

Enterprises can now use PHYTune’s innovative Wi-Fi to streamline operations and bring revenue-generating services to market more effectively. PHYTunes Wi-Fi system is a unique and powerful technology that delivers a signal closer to the user by taking advantage of existing inside wiring infrastructure and signal transformation (i.e., Intermediateory Signal, IF), enabling the Wi-Fi signal to go around barriers and obstacles, delivering a high throughput wireless channel to users.

Using a Single Frequency Network to deliver a Wi-Fi signal, PHYTunes has created seamless roaming in the coverage area and eliminated handoffs and disruptions often associated with legacy WLAN deploymentsdue. This single frequency, no handoff feature enables AMRs and latency-sensitive applications to meet performance and cost requirements. Low-cost Atlas tuners provide a straightforward solution for building new Wireless LANs (WLANs) or augmenting existing systems to cover blind areas and boost performance.

The PHYTunes Advantage

  • v10x+ less expensive than alternative WLAN solutions
  • Eco-friendly solution reusing existing wirelines
  • Higher utilization and reuse of valuable spectrum
  • Significant performance improvements over Repeaters
  • Higher security due to signal containment in wirelines

End-to-End Wireline Wireless and Wi-Fi / 5G Convergence

Integration of PHYtunes Wi-Fi and indoor 5G systems in both fronthaul and backend offers a Hybrid WLAN powered by Wi-Fi and 5G using a single low-cost Headend and Radio Frequency Toners (RF tuners), creating superior indoor coverage. PHYTunes Wi-Fi and 5G integration follow standard guidelines for Wireline Wireless Convergence in the access using 5G core and 5G Access Gateway Function (AGF) for both Wi-Fi and 5G traffic.

The converged networks enable enhanced capabilities such as Wi-Fi authentication via 5G user credentials and extension of 5G slices to Wi-Fi users to deliver differentiated services seamlessly. The WWC will provide significant cost savings and much greater network security.

(Building Blocks for 5G CBRS Private Networks)

CBRS wireless can bring private 5G directly to enterprises, improving operations efficiency and enabling revenue-generating opportunities. CBRS-based 5G networks could be a game changer for enterprises in providing ultra-secure end-to-end private 5G networks.

A private 5G network will supplement wireless coverage where Wi-Fi is unavailable or falls short, providing enhanced mobile edge computing and supporting applications such as Metaverse, AR/VR Autonomous Moving Robots, and real-time streaming.

PHYTunes’ innovative indoor 5G technology provides essential building blocks for creating an end-to-end private 5G network with the help of CBRS technology and connection to private 5G cores. PHYTunes Neptune Headend and Triton Indoor RF Nodes deliver 5G signals indoors with maximum strength and the lowest possible costs. By leveraging PHYTunes technology, enterprise users can facilitate smartphones to make private 5G calls and regular carrier 5G calls with the help of eSIM.
