NEXCOM Bridges Digital Divide with Its mmWave-enabled 5G uCPE

NEXCOM, a leading supplier of network appliances, proudly introduced its desktop professional 5G uCPE - DFA 1163M. The DFA 1163M is powered by Intel Atom® C3758R processor and features a high-speed I/O configuration, including server-grade SFP+ LAN port, embedded Intel® QuickAssist Technology and 5G mmWave connectivity. The DFA 1163M offered with the FWA application software iGWS (Intelligent Generative Wireless System) is a ready-to-deploy solution gaining traction at MWC 2023 this year. By enabling mmWave technology the solution is able to cover more connected users and IoT devices without throughput performance loss, making it particularly appealing for private 5G network.

DFA 1163M has received high attention while showcased at the Taiwan Pavilion at MWC 2023, Barcelona, and has undergone PoC phases with a couple of telecom operators in Asia. With the technological progress of wireless broadband connectivity, unconnected households no longer need to spend enormous amounts of money and time laying cables. The DFA 1163M proves this by helping CommSPs save a lot of effort by providing fiber-like broadband services with up to Gbps wireless broadband experience when deployed as an mmWave-based mobile hotspot network (MHN). Mobile hotspots work anywhere: the hotspot device receives a cellular data signal, allowing various IoT devices to connect to cellular data. With mmWave enabled, the speeds and throughput of the hotspot device are stepping into a whole new level.


“We are proud that customers trust us and chose our platform,” says Matthew Liu, CTO of Network & Communication Solutions at NEXCOM. “We see a big potential for deploying the DFA 1163M not only in urban areas but especially remote locations, and its positive impact on the lives of people who previously had no Internet access. Today they can enjoy all the advantages of 5G connectivity, especially in such crucial areas as education & manufacturing.”
