mmW-Coverage | Extend Your FR2 mmWave Coverage Effectively | TMYTEK

What is mmW-Coverage

Planning the quantity and location of base stations are key factors in a successful deployment. mmW-Coverage solutions emulate gNB and UE with an SDR-based testbed, redistribute FR2 mmWave signals by reflectors to construct optimal coverage with reasonable cost.


Using an SDR-based gNB and UE is a powerful method to plan a deployment for a field. TMYTEK’s mmW-SDR testbed incorporates millimeter-wave technology and SDR for beamforming, beam tracking, and beam management in a network

Fast beam switching time

With a typical switching time of just 2 ms (Ethernet) or 2 μs (SPI Interface), our solution allows for rapid and accurate beamforming.

Fast beam steering time

Our typical T/R mode switching time is just 10 ns (GPIO), enabling quick and efficient transmission and reception.

Wide beam steering angle

TMYTEK’s 5G Beamformers offer 3D beamforming. The steering angle is ± 45° both vertically and horizontally.


5G FR2 enables eMBB and URLLC with low latency and excellent reliability. However, mmWave faces significant propagation losses and can be blocked by obstacles, making it challenging to achieve optimal signal coverage at efficient costs. TMYTEK's XRifle Reflector enables users to customize EM signal distributions, cover dead zones, and create cold zones.

XRifle Use Case: Indoor

Electromagnetic surface (ES) patterns on interior glass or PCBs redistribute mmWave signals from different angles, enabling telecom and system integrators to quickly produce signal hot-zones and cold-zones, and simulate actual mmWave deployment.

XRifle Use Case: Extend Signal Cross Floors

The XRifle Reflector solves signal transmission challenges within commercial buildings by strategically extending signals bidirectionally between different floors through cable shafts. After the installation, the signal improved 30 dBm from -90 dBm to -60 dBm.
Explore how XRifle Reflectors extend the signal cross floors in this use case.

How the XRifle Reflector Works

The XRifle Reflector allows for low-cost customization of mmWave signal distribution. The XRifle Reflector can quickly produce signal hot-zones and cold-zones and simulate actual mmWave deployment by strategically configuring its eight reflectors with varying incidence and reflection angles, such as the ES0045 with an incidence angle of 0 degrees and a reflection angle of 45 degrees.

Eight Angles

The eight commonly used reflection angles offered by XRifle Reflector help re-distribute mmWave signals to where they are needed the most, allowing telecom and system integrators to extend coverage and reduce the need for additional mmWave base stations, reducing overall costs.
