FWA Technology for Rural Connectivity

Intracom Telecom said, "The WiBAS G5 dual-BS hub and G5 GigaConnect terminals operating at 28 GHz demonstrated excellent performance results, delivering 1 Gbps at a 5 km distance." According to the company, the FWA network is being deployed and operated at 28 GHz.

Furthermore, Intracom Telecom mentioned that its FWA platforms feature advanced algorithms for dynamic capacity allocation, maximising concurrent subscriber connections, and automations to expedite terminal installation and service provisioning.

Intracom Telecom expressed enthusiasm for supporting Open Fiber's initiative to introduce Gigabit connectivity to Italian citizens, especially those in rural areas, saying, "The company is confident that the partnership with Open Fiber will set an example for other organisations to follow and include FWA technologies in their network expansion strategy, making a substantial contribution to realising the EU directive for Gigabit connectivity in the years to come."
