Zyxel Communications, announced Telenor Norway has selected Zyxel Communications’ 5G NR Fixed Wireless Access outdoor router (NR 7101) to roll out the world’s fastest and biggest 5G FWA.
Telenor is modernizing its existing network infrastructure with plans to offer nationwide 5G access by 2024. The company introduced wireless broadband in May 2019. Later that year, Telenor Norway partnered with Ericsson to modernize and deliver its nationwide 5G radio access network.
Zyxel’s 5G NR FWA outdoor router (NR 7101) uses modern antenna technology for Telenor to offer high-speed wireless connectivity. The company cited Zyxel’s innovative technology, effective local presence and collaborative approach as key reasons for its decision.
FWA supports the increasing number of individuals and families working and learning from home. FWA is an important part of Telenor’s network modernization and our partnership with Zyxel makes this possible,” said Camilla Amundsen, CMO, Fixed and TV of Telenor Norway.
With Zyxel’s NR7101 outdoor router, Telenor also will provide customers with a smooth transition to 5G, while offering them access to its 4G network. This allows the provider to maximize speeds, regardless of network, and leverage its existing infrastructure investments throughout the rollout of 5G.
Telenor plans to make 5G available nationwide in Norway by 2024. Telenor will offer Zyxel’s 5G-ready FWA outdoor router, which ensures a smooth transition for subscribers not yet covered by 5G, to FWA-customers.
