This supports the increasing popularity of Fixed Wireless Access as an economical alternative to offering high-speed broadband access in hard to reach areas.

Many major service providers, who have been recipient of government funding for delivering high-speed internet are opting for FWA via licensed and CBRS bands to fulfill these obligations. CBRS auction has exceeded $1 Billion in just 11 days and is expected to beat all expectations. 


The Zyxel LTE Series indoor and outdoor CPE enables service providers to deploy wireless broadband internet connectivity in rural and remote areas where the deployment of DSL, cable, and fiber is cost-prohibitive. The Zyxel LTE Series products support both bridge and router functions to maximize flexibility in deployment and incorporate high gain antennas for better signal performance in different deployment scenarios.

According to marketwatch.com, the Fixed LTE market was valued at USD 17.9 billion in 2018 and is expected to reach aFixed Wireless Delivers High-speed Broadband value of USD 65.35 billion by 2024, at a CAGR of 24.5% over the forecast period (2019-2024).

LTE7461 supports multi-band LTE. It provides 2x2 MIMO high-gain antennas of up to 8 dBi per element that work effectively in outdoor environments. The outdoor design enables it to work under near non-line-of-sight conditions to increase coverage and bandwidth as well as to eliminate edge corners having difficulty accessing good signals.

LTE7485, LTE7480 and LTE7461 support Power over Ethernet (PoE) and mobile app for easy configuration. They also include TR69 support for remote management.
