On-Boarding Help

  1. Where is the HW BOM?

    The complete qualified Aerial Research Cloud BOM is located in the Procure the Hardware chapter of the Installation Guide.

  2. Does the platform support MU-MIMO?

    Today the Aerial Research Cloud does not offer MU-MIMO integrated interop, however the same platform is capable of adding software features for MU-MIMO. MU-MIMO support is targeted in Y2023.

  3. Which frequency bands does the platform support?

    Currently Aerial Research Cloud offers tested solution in n78 band, however with access to source can be qualified to interoperate in other sub-6 frequency bands

  4. How can I apply for an experimental license in United States?

    Please review the application located on https://apps2.fcc.gov/ELSExperiments/pages/login.htm. If you have a program experimental license (https://apps.fcc.gov/oetcf/els/index.cfm), you can use it also on the Innovation Zone areas (Boston and the PAWR platforms) by submitting a request on that website.

  5. Where can I utility RF tools and calculators

    Please see the following site https://5g-tools.com/

  6. Is GPS needed?

    Yes a GPS signal is necessary to drive precision timing for 5G networks. Incase GPS signal is in-accessible, the date command can be used as a workaround. This command is useful for those deployments where there is no timing reference (like GNSS) but needs Qg 2 to act as a Grandmaster to propagate time and synchronization over PTP to slave units

    When using two GMs, you can manually set the date and time on the first one and connect it’s 1PPS/ToD output to the 1PPS/ToD port (configured as input) of the second GM. The second GM will then output PTP messages with a clock class=6
