Known as the first 5G home router
Recently, 5G as the NGMN has been popular among people, and the voice of early commercial trials has also increased. The operator Verizon also stated that it will soon launch a fixed 5G broadband service in Sacramento, California, in the second half of 2018.
Although the fixed 5G broadband service is not a common mobile network connection, it will only transfer 5G signals to Wi-Fi to solve the last-mile broadband access problem for home users, but it will still be used in large quantities during the connection of 5G base stations. 5G related technologies, such as millimeter wave transmission, new coding, advanced spectrum sharing technology, and so on.
In response, the FCC of the United States has approved Samsung's listing of a millimeter-wave based router device (SFG-D0100) (accurately referred to as CPE equipment). It is reported that the router is equipped with 64 antennas, supports millimeter waves in the 27.5GHz to 28.35GHz band, supports beamforming, and supports Bluetooth LE, but does not integrate 802.11 features. This shows that in addition to the Samsung SFG-D0100, an additional wireless router is needed, just like some Cable modulator-demodulator unit.
However, this router seems to have some radiation. According to the FCC RF exposure guidelines, Samsung warns users to keep the device at least 8 inches (20.32 cm) away from people.
Fiber-optic fixed 5G broadband
Previously, Verizon had said that fixed 5G broadband will use Ericsson and Samsung's 28GHz device for network testing.
In its commercial trial experiment, the fixed 5G broadband can provide a downlink speed exceeding 1.4Gbps and a 600Mbps uplink rate at a distance of 1000 feet (304.8 meters). In the range of 1000 to 2000 feet (304.8 to 609.6 meters), it is also possible to provide a downlink rate of less than 1.4Gbps and an upstream rate of more than 400Mbps. For a connection beyond 2000 feet (609.6 meters), the maximum downstream speed can also exceed 1Gbps.
Therefore, people are expected to enjoy a similar fiber-level wireless networking experience through fixed 5G broadband.
