What is MiLTE technology?
MiLTE is a hardware technology that provides half-duplex wireless service over semi-licensed microwave spectrum in rural and remote areas (internet and VoIP). It is built on LTE technology.
How far does the MiLTE signal reach in a rural and/or remote area?
MiLTE will provide service up to 15 km/9.5 miles radius (or 700 square km/275 square miles). With MiLTE downstream data rate may not be maintained consistently to the edge of service area.
Is MiLTE full duplex or half-duplex?
MiLTE offers half-duplex. This allows data to be transmitted in both directions on a single channel, but not at the same time.
How much spectrum do we need to service our subscribers with MiLTE?
|Number of Subscribers in 2×2 MIMO||Bandwidth|
Note: The above applies in conditions where 1 Mbps up and 5 Mbps down is available and with an erlang of 20.
What are the pre-requisites to installing MiLTE?
- Semi-license to TD-LTE Bans 40 (2.3 GHz), 41 (2.5 GHz), 42 (3.5 GHz) microwave spectrum with a minimum of 10 MHz channel width (services ~100 subscribers) up to 50 MHz (services ~500 subscribers (see table above)
- Tower infrastructure (or permission to erect or share a tower infrastructure) located within the service area
- Access to internet a maximum of 30 km from the tower infrastructure
- Access to electricity at tower infrastructure base
Does MiLTE require clear line of sight?
No, it requires near line of sight (also called non-line of sight). This allows for partial obstruction, such as foliage and small buildings within the service area.
What base station equipment is supplied with MiLTE?
