Zyxel Communications, an industry-leading provider of secure broadband networking, internet access and connected home products, announced Telenor Norway has selected its 5G NR Fixed Wireless Access outdoor router (NR 7101) to roll out 5G FWA.
As the first mobile operator of 5G in Scandinavia, 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.
The selection of Zyxel Communications marks an important milestone for Telenor’s work in upgrading customers to 5G.
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.
With Zyxel’s NR7101 outdoor router, Telenor 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.
