The EXSITE-M5Q is a 3GPP release 17 compliant, 4×4 MIMO 5G NR standalone basestation. The M5Q supports 64 connected- state users and UL/DL data rates up to 450Mbps in each direction for applications such as fixed wireless access, private 5G, in-building or rural coverage.

The EXSITE-M5Q supports FR1 channel bandwidths up to 100MHz, both FDD and TDD duplex modes and 15kHz and 30kHz numerologies.

The M5Q has a lightweight CLI based management interface (OAM) for rapid system integration into any modern radio platform.
