One of the largest promises of 5G is the ability to serve remote customers with broadband internet. In line with that goal, D-Link has just announced three units service providers can use to do just that.
5G stands ready to revolutionize internet access, in some cases providing speeds that are measured in gigabits rather than megabits. For customers in remote or rural areas, where traditional broadband is not available, 5G service promises to finally offer speeds comparable to metropolitan areas. The new technology will also give wireless carriers the ability to challenge traditional, wired internet providers like never before.
“With expanded spectrum and new applications, 5G is going to bring more competition to the broadband market within the coming years,” said Raman Bridwell, Vice President of Product and Services at D-Link Systems, Inc. “These solutions will help more people access that network in more places with the same wireline experience we have today.”
D-Link’s announced models represent three increasing levels of features and performance, with the top-tier unit designed to be mounted on the outside of a building and withstand the rigors of ongoing weather exposure. Being mounted outside will likely result in the fastest speeds, as the unit can be placed where it will have the best line-of-site to the closest tower and not be hindered by walls or windows.
