Where to connect the 5G home router
To deliver the best Fixed wireless broadband, sometimes you have to go to where the signal is.
FastMile takes you right there. Our FastMile Gateways can be placed indoors and include 5G modem, antennas, router and Wi-Fi for a complete and easy to install broadband solution.
FastMile receivers use industry-leading high gain antennas and can be mounted outside to avoid first wall attenuation, providing better coverage and speed, especially at the cell edge.
The fast way to perfect 5G FWA service

Making mmWave FWA viable for widescale deployments

mmWave 5G FWA proof of concept device
5G mmWave spectrum is now available in every major market, opening the door to true gigabit FWA services. But the currently preferred use case—dense urban environments—is costly. Now there’s a better way.
Nokia is working on new technology to make widescale mmWave broadband a reality sooner. A high-gain antenna with 360° field of view allows a FWA CPE to connect to a signal coming from any direction. We have combined this with intelligent algorithms that create a fingerprint of the radio signals in a room—direct, reflected or refracted—and can instantly switch between signal sources to ensure the best possible connectivity. These breakthroughs make customer self-install a possibility for the first time, as neither the precise location or orientation of the CPE is a barrier to effective operation.
Operators with mmWave and sub-6 GHz spectrum can use both together for a more robust FWA service and cost-effective deployment.
We’ve had impressive results in our lab and field tests, paving the way for 5G mmWave solutions that will accelerate broadband connectivity around the world.
