Rakuten to expand mmWave outdoor and indoor 5G network with Movandi’s smart repeater


Movandia leader in new 5G RF and mmWave (mmWave) technologies and software, announced that it is collaborating with Rakuten Mobile to expand the coverage and capacity of the mmWave outdoor and indoor 5G network in Japan using Movandi’s smart repeater and BeamXR Open-RAN technology.

Movandi’s proprietary mmWave RF chipsets, phased array antenna and software technology will allow Rakuten Mobile’s 5G mmWave signals to provide coverage beyond the range of other mmWave approaches while potentially reducing by more than half the cost of infrastructure.

The deployment of 5G mmWave is essential to deliver on the marketing promises of ubiquitous high-speed, low-latency networks, and to meet market capacity demands, which are expected to be exhausted within two years with current technologies. 5G mmWave allows leading providers such as Rakuten Mobile to take advantage of the vast amount of spectral resources available in the higher bands, allowing them to deliver the world’s fastest multi-gigabit cellular speeds and low latency connectivity. . Movandi-powered smart radios and repeaters deliver unmatched performance, cost, and size advantages over challenging 5G high-frequency millimeter-wave, unlocking the potential for new multi-gigabit wireless communication applications.

The Movandi platform has a comprehensive portfolio of 5G mmWave products, including chipsets, MIMO antennas and software that enable network designers to create smart active repeater solutions that mitigate range, line-of-sight and blocking limitations of mmWave technology while maintaining robust signal transmission. Movandi’s 5G architecture dramatically improves the way repeater-based systems are designed and manufactured while cutting deployment costs in half, according to Mobile Expert’s Joe Madden. Collectively, the Movandi BeamX platform includes BeamX software, BeamXR smart repeaters, and RF front ends for fixed wireless CPEs, mobile devices, small cells, and open radio access network (Open-RAN) aapps.

Tareq Amin, CEO of Rakuten Mobile
Rakuten Mobile is thrilled to partner with disruptive innovator Movandi. We were very impressed with their core 5G mmWave technology which allows us to cost effectively expand and deploy our 5G network in Japan.

Maryam Rofougaran, CEO and co-founder of Movandi
We are very happy that Rakuten Mobile has chosen Movandi as a strategic partner to improve the coverage of its 5G mmWave network. Our investments and over 78 issued patents in chipsets, phased array MIMO antennas and software have positioned Movandi as the industry’s leading 5G mmWave innovator. Rakuten Mobile is very selective in its choice of partners, so their choice of our technologies is a testament to our unique approach of purpose-built silicon, antennas and software with advanced AI, mesh capabilities and cloud control, which results in significant savings on deployment costs.
