Inseego introduced four new 5G fixed wireless solutions designed to meet the needs of users in almost any location, from underserved rural areas to dense urban environments, from residential settings to business premises. Named the Wavemaker series, this is one of the industry’s broadest line-ups of 5G fixed wireless products.
“Our new 5G fixed wireless solutions, which support our powerful cloud-based SaaS platform, set the stage for Inseego’s global leadership in a whole new category,” said Inseego Chairman and CEO Dan Mondor.
“In addition to delivering the industry’s gold standard in mobile broadband products, we’re now disrupting the home and business broadband access market with our on-premise 5G solutions.
“Inseego has solved the decades-long ‘last mile’ broadband access problem with our Wavemaker products. And for our potential customers, we have delivered for the first time ever a wireless solution that offers the same or better performance as fiber optic or coax cable connections.
“We’re proud to be on the leading edge with 5G fixed wireless access solutions that will enable service providers to address a massive new market opportunity, reduce costly service calls, reduce network buildout capex, and change the way millions of people connect.”
