FastMile 5G mmWave FWA Receiver

Put 5G mmWave to work for your Fixed Wireless Access broadband service


mmWave takes Fixed Wireless Access broadband to the next level

5G Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) has been a runaway success and is today connecting millions of satisfied broadband customers around the world using mid-band 5G. Now 5G mmWave Fixed Wireless Access is here to take that success even further.

The Nokia FastMile 5Gmm Receiver is the first solution to overcome the challenges of deploying mmWave FWA, namely attenuation, obstructions, and line-of-sight operation. Industry-leading high-gain antennas, 360° field of view and intelligent algorithms enable the 5Gmm FastMile Receiver to connect to a signal coming from any direction, and instantly switch between sources in the event of a temporary obstruction. These breakthroughs make mmWave broadband a reality, even in non-line-of-sight (NLoS) conditions.

myths of mmWave Fixed Wireless Access

Busting the myths of mmWave Fixed Wireless Access

The challenges of deploying 5G mmWave for Fixed Wireless Access have become almost mythical. But with Nokia’s industry-leading high-gain antennas, 360° field of view and in-built intelligence, the FastMile 5Gmm Receiver busts right through these myths.  Now,

  • mmWave can be used in urban suburban and rural areas without the need for costly network densification 
  • mmWave can be used in non-line-of-sight conditions
  • mmWave can avoid environmental disruptions
  • mmWave can cover distances exceeding 12km in the right rural environment

mmWave is relatively low-cost, high-capacity spectrum that can fuel FWA growth for many operators who face capacity challenges or have unused spectrum.

Installation technicians can use a little guidance every once in a while. The Nokia Wireless app empowers professional installers with valuable information about the mobile network and the location of specific radio that each device should connect to. It uses this information to guide through the entire installation process including discovery of best location to install FastMile receivers. With augmented reality, technicians can visualize where the 5G radio is in relation to the planned location to determine the right place to install the 5G receiver.
