Features and Benefits of the Zyxel 5G NR CPE:
- High-Speed 5G Broadband – 5G NR enables service providers to offer customers a future-proof, fixed wireless broadband option. Increased bandwidth accelerates internet speeds and reduces network latency for applications such as video conferencing, video streaming, online gaming, and smart home devices.
- Easy to Deploy – The outdoor NR7201 can be easily installed on a wall or pole and features integrated 802.3af/at PoE PD (power device) support for versatility in deployment. All Zyxel LTE solutions include several tools including a mobile app that helps service providers with installation and deployment.
- Remote Management – Both the NR7201 and NR5201 support TR-069 / TR-181 standard based remote management and service provisioning and TR-143 for speed testing. In addition, Zyxel offers the Band Pilot cloud-based management system for all fixed wireless CPE that enables remote troubleshooting and monitoring of online status of all devices, RF performance history tracking and remote firmware upgrades enabling operators to provide a reliable network and better experience for their customers.
A top tier service provider is already deploying Zyxel’s 5G NR products as they move to replace copper lines with fixed wireless access across their urban, suburban and rural service areas. The new fixed wireless access service, which was commercially launched this year and is planned for completion in 2022, utilizes the Zyxel indoor and outdoor routers in bridge mode to connect to the home gateways. In addition, Zyxel has added MQ Telemetry Transport (MQTT) support to TR-069 remote management for 5G NR CPE offering real-time data access for enhanced analytics.
“Service providers are continuously faced with the challenge of delivering state-of-the-art broadband technologies to support the growing array of advanced networked applications in the home with the need to grow their revenues and reduce operating expenses,” explained Brian Feng, Senior Vice President at Zyxel Communications. “Our new 5G NR solutions are ideal solutions that enable them to grow revenues by giving them the ability to deliver fast 5G speeds into homes in rural or remote areas. By providing the robust remote management capabilities, our solutions can allow quicker trouble resolution while reducing the need to roll trucks to customer sites.”
