Combining a specific fixed wireless radio antenna topology solution with interference mitigation techniques, along with an end user high gain,directional beamforming antenna, all installable on top of any existing LTE network, Nokia FastMile allows operators to build profitably on the existing macro installed base and idle rural spectrum offering fixed wireless broadband with guaranteed throughput to suburban, rural, and deep rural users. The solution has four main components - the outdoor modem and indoor router, LTE-Advanced network, a controller, and mobile apps. FastMile can use a wide range of FDD and TDD frequencies.
Adoption of this solution by end-users requires an easy to buy, install, and manage approach. FastMile is designed to increase end user adoption with fast and low cost deployment using appealing and easy to install equipment in residential locations. Combined with an integrated installation capability that covers the residential equipment, radio access network, controller, and smartphone applications to help users with the installation, FastMile is focusing on keeping operator deployment costs to a minimum.
