In the modern era of digital connectivity, reliable high-speed internet is indispensable for daily life. Broadband operators are pivotal in delivering this connectivity, and Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) is a wireless alternative to traditional wired connections. FWA allows operators to extend high-speed internet to areas where deploying wired infrastructure is challenging, effectively narrowing the digital divide.

A year ago, Qualcomm introduced the world’s first fully integrated 5G advanced-ready FWA platform, the Qualcomm 5G Fixed Wireless Access Platform Gen 3. Powered by the Snapdragon X75 5G Modem-RF, this platform brought breakthrough 5G speeds, coverage, and reliability. Qualcomm is taking this success further with the Qualcomm 5G Fixed Wireless Access Ultra Gen 3 Platform, aimed at revolutionizing the deployment of 5G mmWave FWA worldwide.

Qualcomm 5G FWA Ultra Gen 3 Platform

The Qualcomm 5G Fixed Wireless Access Ultra Gen 3 Platform offers mmWave performance and connectivity comparable to our previous Gen 3 platform but with significantly lower power consumption, a smaller footprint, and reduced overall system costs. At its core, this platform stands out with its innovative AI-enhanced system search and selection. Utilizing advanced AI capabilities, it continuously learns and adjusts to environmental changes, optimizing performance dynamically.

Including the Qualcomm QTM567 mmWave antenna module with a 360-degree field of view enhances mmWave coverage and range, ensuring seamless connectivity even in challenging environments. Moreover, the platform sets new standards in design efficiency, boasting over 50% less power consumption compared to previous-generation mmWave FWA products. This enables operators to develop customer-installable indoor and outdoor mmWave FWA products that reduce environmental impact while maintaining high RF performance and self-install capabilities.

The Qualcomm 5G Fixed Wireless Access Ultra Gen 3 Platform redefines connectivity solutions for operators, offering unmatched performance, advanced features, and cost-effectiveness. It positions mmWave FWA at the forefront of every next-gen broadband planning decision, solidifying its role as a game-changer in the industry.
