Summary
     Technology Benefits
69

 §   Improved coverage
      §   Larger areas covered per WiFi base station
      §   Uniform coverage with fewer dead spots
 §   Increased capacity
      §   In both uplink and downlink
            §   Better link budget means higher rates
 §   Deeper indoor penetration
      §   Improved link gain enables building coverage from outside
 §   Superior interference mitigation
      §   Beamf orming focuses all energy to and from the client
      §   Dynamic interference handling (DIH) continually adapts air-access according to environmental
          noise parameters
      §   Null forming eliminates the effect of noise but setting a null in the antenna beam toward the
          source of interference

 §   Cost effective
      §   50% cost savings in CAPEX and OPEX
      §   Fewer base stations required to provide full coverage
      §   Diverse addressable market (metro, residential, remote…)
      §   High-grade of service even in noisy areas
