CommScope Holding Company, Inc. (COMM - Free Report) recently unveiled the NVG558 fixed wireless access gateway platform to provide additional support for sub-6 GHz and mmWave 5G New Radio (NR) wireless connectivity for increased 5G deployment. Together with its existing product line, the company has thus expanded operators’ capabilities to deliver superior data connectivity and broadband facilities across various gateways.

The solution enables operators to offer high-speed fixed wireless Internet over 5G NR, 4G LTE, and 3.5 GHz CBRS networks using the same multi-application gateway platform used to provide wireline broadband services. The platform is equipped with self-install capabilities to help subscribers easily install it, thereby reducing installation wait times and lowering operator costs. In addition, the solution enables operators to rapidly prototype and deliver new broadband applications and services as and when they are available without integrating them into the platform’s firmware for lengthy lab approvals and field trials.

The company is making the best use of customer relationships and competitive position, paving the way for healthy mobility solutions business as communication service providers continue to establish their networks to increase capacity and coverage. It is expected to benefit from favorable networking market dynamics, while creating shareholder value.

Moving forward, CommScope predicts big North American telecom companies and cable operators to continue rolling out avant-garde solutions to meet the rising demand for bandwidth.
