Nokia has announced that Du in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is deploying its Multi-Access Gateway (MAG) to provide broadband services to residential and business users over 4G/5G fixed wireless access (FWA) networks, in addition to mobile services. Under the contract Du is utilising Nokia FastMile 5G gateways, MAG, and Nokia professional services. According to the vendor, the Nokia MAG uses its 7750 Service Routers to deliver broadband access over fibre and/or FWA technologies, allowing Du to efficiently offload fixed wireless broadband traffic from its mobile core network to improve service scalability, subscriber coverage and time to market.
Saleem AlBlooshi, Chief Technology Officer at Du, said: ‘Fixed wireless access is a vital and highly effective initiative, enabling us to provide cutting-edge use cases such as smart home and IoT solutions to our valued subscribers.’
