Qualcomm, TIM and Ericsson claim the new long-distance mmWave 5G world record
The Italian carrier TIM, Ericsson and Qualcomm have collaborated on a project to push millimeter-wave 5G reception beyond its current limits. This work has resulted in the ability to pick this signal up at high speed from 6.5 kilometers away. Then again, this was not done with smartphones, but rather with equipment for potential next-gen wireless broadband. Read more on this article here. Published by: Notebookcheck
Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) enables network providers to deliver ultra-high-speed broadband to residential and rural areas, supporting home and business uses where fibre is prohibitively expensive to provide and maintain.
5G Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) employs standardised 3GPP architectures and common mobile components to deliver ultra-high-speed broadband services to residential and business customers.
In the lower bands of the wireless spectrum 5G Fixed Wireless Access can be used to quickly and cheaply deliver another option instead of wired broadband. In the millimetre wavelengths, 5G FWA can provide a level of service bandwidth capacity comparable to fibre optics.
