As 5G technology becomes more available and accessible, Zyxel has introduced a new family of three LTE routers that deliver all the benefits of this ultra-fast technology to both businesses and consumers, says Patrick Hirscher, EMEA Wireless Market Development Manager at Zyxel.
5G is a mind-blowing technology that can provide speeds comparable to many fixed-line broadband services. While its 4G LTE predecessor has been used quite widely as a backup solution for broadband, 5G will be used much more as a primary connection, for both businesses and consumers, in areas that are hard to reach with fixed line connections.
Our new NR family (‘NR’ stands for “new radio”) of routers support the very latest 5G technology and with indoor (NR5101), outdoor (NR7101), and mobile (NR2101) versions, there is something for every situation. For businesses that want to provide excellent 5G coverage inside a building or in an outdoor café or park, for instance, and for individual users who want to take ultra-fast connectivity with them wherever they go.
The NR2101 is a portable router that allows you to easily share 5G connectivity with family or friends. It’s perfect for vacations or business trips to places where there is no fixed-line connection or WiFi. At the other end of the scale, the outdoor version – the NR7101 – is the most powerful and resilient of the new routers. It has been designed for use in any outdoor setting, whether it’s an “al fresco” restaurant, a construction site, or some other location where it is difficult to provide a connection by any other means.
There are a surprisingly high number of such scenarios. If you wanted to provide Internet access on a ferry or tourist boat, for example. In other cases, there simply has not been time to have a fixed line installed. This often happens where a specialist team is called in to address a problem at a location where Internet access is not normally needed.
Something for everyone
But interestingly, it’s the new indoor router – the Zyxel NR5101 – that is really attracting a lot of the early interest from our customers, especially in the Nordics and other parts of Europe where it is difficult or impractical to provide fixed-line broadband. In such areas, 5G with its superior speed, is ideal.
Whatever your needs as a business or as an individual, with the Zyxel NR family of routers, you can enjoy all the benefits that 5G technology delivers. If you’d like to learn more, please get in touch with your local Zyxel office or partner.
