Nokia Beacon 10
Nokia Beacon 10 includes a 10G WAN interface which can be easily paired with 10 Gbps fiber modems for multi-gigabit services at home. Nokia showcased its new gateway for the first time at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
Communication Service Providers delivering Gigabit speeds on fiber with widespread roll out of 10G fiber powered by XGS-PON to homes and businesses require upgrades to Wi-Fi devices, and the Beacon 10 from Nokia would help deliver the 10 Gigabit speeds wirelessly to devices.
Nokia says, "The 'E' in Wi-Fi 6E means faster speeds and lower latencies, ideal for the latest office applications, home entertainment and home working experiences."
Upgraded Nokia Wi-Fi Cloud Controller
Nokia has also announced its upgraded Nokia Wi-Fi Cloud Controller to act as a User Services Platform (USP) controller. USP is the industry standard protocol (also known as TR-369) to manage services and configurations in network devices (either remotely by a cloud application or locally by a mobile app).
