Swisscom selects Nokia as exclusive Fixed Wireless Access partner

Deal will leverage Nokia FastMile 5G receivers in Switzerland from 2021 to mostly rural regions.

Swisscom will deploy Nokia FastMile 5G Receivers primarily in rural areas in Switzerland to offer ultra-fast broadband services. Nokia will be Swisscom’s exclusive supplier for 5G Fixed Wireless Access (FWA).

The Nokia FastMile 5G Receiver combines the best of indoor and outdoor FWA solutions enabling Swisscom to deploy one device across the network. Designed to be simple enough for the end user to install, it can be used indoors on a window or desk top in cases where signal strengths are strong, as well as outside on a window or wall if indoor signal strength is weaker.

A smartphone application guides the user through the installation process and helps to select the location with the best radio reception.

The 5G Receiver offers better performance and reliability, through extensive carrier aggregation between 4G and 5G bands. It also connects to existing home networks and gateways with using a standard ethernet cable. By deploying the Nokia FastMile 5G receivers Swisscom will address higher bandwidth demands of its residential and business customers.

Marcel Burgherr, Head of Gateways, Phones & other Devices, at Swisscom said: 

“We have chosen Nokia as our 5G fixed wireless access device partner. This solution will help us to bring ultra-fast internet speeds to our residential and business customers in rural areas.

Sandra Motley, President of Fixed Networks at Nokia, added:

“5G fixed wireless access is a perfect complement to fiber-to-the-home networks. It can efficiently deliver ultra-fast speeds to areas that are unserved or under served by fiber. With the combined experience of Nokia and Swisscom, we were able to develop an innovative and effective solution. We are delighted to partner with Swisscom on its broadband vision with 5G FWA.”
