The NVG558 FWA Gateway platform provides operators the flexibility to deliver 5G NR over sub-6 GHz today and take advantage of mmWave deployments as they become more widespread. Cellular networks represent a significant opportunity for operators to offer internet and triple-play services to suburban and underserved customers. Approximately 29 million suburban Americans do not have access to 25 Mbps or faster broadband*. The latest version of the NVG558 enables operators to offer customers high-speed fixed wireless broadband services over 5G NR, 4G LTE, and 3.5 GHz CBRS networks using the same flexible, multi-application gateway platform they use to provide wireline broadband services.
The platform also offers subscriber self-install capabilities to help operators reduce truck-rolls and customer installation wait times, lowering costs and improving the overall customer experience. In addition, all NVG500 Series gateways support Docker® containers. This enables operators to rapidly prototype and deliver new broadband applications and services without having to take the time to integrate them into the platform’s firmware and complete lengthy lab approvals and field trials.
“As operators build out their 5G networks, many want to maximize the value of these networks by using them to offer fixed wireless broadband services to customers,” said
Like CommScope’s other NVG500 Series gateways—including the NVG578 10G GPON gateway—the NVG558 offers:
- Dual-band or tri-band 802.11ac (Wi-Fi® 5) and 802.11ax Wi-Fi (Wi-Fi 6) options
CommScopeHomeAssure™ for smart, whole-home Wi-Fi
- Optional IoT service capability
- Docker container support for simplified application deployment
- Deep Packet Inspection support for advanced Wi-Fi management, Quality of Service,and Parental Controls
- IPTV video optimization
