Although several companies have been working towards leading 5G connectivity to smartphones, Qualcomm has produced a unique solution what will expand the achieve of 5G to a variety of another gadgets which include TVs and PCs. On the 14th of October, Qualcomm sent out a press release what shows that its new solution combines 5G and Wi-Fi 6 to supply Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) home gateways.
In simpler words, routers co-developed with Qualcomm will accept a 5G SIM card they will be able of supporting high-speed data transfer what is observed with 5G compatible phones. As of now, extra than 30 OEMs have partnered with Qualcomm to develop 5G compatible FWA home gateways, few of which have Nokia, LG, Samsung Electronics, ZTE and Netgear.
Despite of the maker, all routers co-developed with Qualcomm will incorporate the Snapdragon X55 5G modem and RF system (radio frequency) built by the American manufacturer. Because the previously mentioned OEMs have a global achieve, it would be fair to presume that Sd X55-powered 5G FWAs will be commercially in the world by upcoming year in the U.S., Asia and Europe.
Not only are those products best for urban areas but their implementation makes best sense in rural or remote parts in which ISPs have still not set up wired broadband infrastructure because of to harsh terrain or a limited number of potential customers. For that reason, the reach of high-speed internet could be done rapidly and economically with this technology.
Besides, those FWA home gateways may allow telecommunication companies to unify their broadband infrastructure. Lastly, this solution will compete DSL, passive optical networking (PON) providers, and cable broadband (DOCSIS).
