Choose the operating mode that suits your application

Intelligent algorithms and real-time link testing enable you to operate MX Boost in one of three modes based on the needs of the application you want to support. Whether your application demands higher capacity, very low latency and reliability, or requires a smooth handover, MX Boost can help, supporting through its aggregation mode, replication mode and mobility mode, respectively.

Aggregation mode

Increased radio capacity supports your resource-hungry applications. For example, video-based industrial use cases like video assisted, or remote machine control at mines, ports, and manufacturing facilities.

Replication mode

Mobility mode


Extracts maximum value from disparate multiple radio layers (4.9G, 5G …) and technologies (Wi-Fi6…) combining them into a single connection.

Optimizes reliability and performance for the most demanding industry use cases.

Enabled by a unique patented algorithm implemented in the MX Boost Gateway running on MX Industrial Edge (MXIE) and in MX Boost enabled devices.

An already proven technology offering important latency and data rate benefits.
