Nokia gives Fixed Wireless Access a boost by enabling 5G mmWave indoor installations

  • Nokia’s 360 High Gain 5G mmWave technology overcomes mmWave propagation challenges making the spectrum viable for 5G Fixed Wireless Access in-home broadband in dense urban environments
  • The innovative technology combines very high gain with a 360 Field of View, picking up any signal from any direction, and effectively enabling simple installation
  • mmWave will increase 5G FWA capacity by 5-10x

12 October 2021

Espoo, Finland – Nokia today announced a Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) breakthrough which could see wireless broadband capacity increase by 5 to 10 times. Nokia engineers have used a novel approach to make 5G mmWave fixed wireless access viable. Since mmWave requires line-of-sight to operate, signals can easily be disrupted by outdoor or in-home obstacles. Nokia’s 360 High Gain technology, announced on the eve of Broadband World Forum, overcomes the challenge by both amplifying available signals and dynamically finding the strongest connection.

Fixed Wireless Access broadband devices typically use 4G or 5G mobile signals for high speed home connectivity. Most 5G FWA deployments today leverage low band (sub 2Ghz) or mid band (2-6 Ghz) radio frequencies, but as FWA networks develop, additional spectrum will be needed to drive future growth.

Operators are now looking to increase speeds by using even more frequencies, notably from the high band spectrum known as mmWave (24 GHz to 40 GHz). However, higher radio frequencies have propagation challenges as they are more likely to be impeded by physical obstacles.

Nokia’s 360 High Gain 5G mmWave technology captures a 360 mmWave fingerprint of the indoor environment, picks up direct and reflected signals from any direction, and adapts to the changing environment, through advanced analytics.

Kyung Mun, Principal Analyst at Mobile Experts said “Fixed Wireless Access is on the rise. It will represent almost $15 billion market cumulatively over the next five years and the mmWave-enabled 5G customer premise equipment will make up 80% by 2026.”

Sandy Motley, President, Fixed Networks at Nokia said “Making indoor, self-installable mmWave FWA viable in an urban indoor environment is crucial for FWA growth. The addition of mmWave to the 5G FWA market will deliver the 5 to 10 times more capacity that is needed to support the ever more demanding subscribers and services. I am extremely proud of our Fixed Network team who have notched up yet another technical first”.

Nokia has validated the 360 High Gain 5G mmWave FWA technology in its research labs, and technology trials are ongoing in various urban environments. Volume deployments will start in 2023 and are expected to focus initially on operators with subscribers in dense urban environments where high speeds and high capacity is essential for market penetration.

Notes to editors

360 High Gain technical details:

  • Very high gain antenna, highly improving the sensitivity of the FWA CPE, allowing for high quality service and good indoor coverage in difficult circumstances
  • 360 Field of View, to pick up mmWave signals from any direction, receiving both indoor and outdoor reflections
  • Advanced analytics to select the strongest and more reliable signals. The technology takes a snapshot of the environment, analyzes the signature, and connects to best incoming signal. Then it dynamically adapts to changing environment, e.g. dealing with moving people.

Saniona completes submission of manufacturing data for Tesomet capsules to U.S. FDA18.10.2021 14:00:00 CEST | Press release

PRESS RELEASE 18October 2021 Saniona (OMX: SANION), a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company focused on rare diseases, today announcedthat it has completed the submission of all information previously requested by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regarding its chemistry, manufacturing and controls (CMC) programfor Tesomet capsules. With this submission completed, Saniona expects to be able to initiate its Phase 2b clinical trials for Tesomet before the end of 2021, as planned. There are multiple potential advantages to offering Tesomet as a capsule rather than a tablet to people living with Prader-Willi syndrome or hypothalamic obesity. Some of these individuals have a tendency to chew tablets, which could disrupt the effectiveness of the fixed-dose combination of Tesomet’s active ingredients. The Tesomet capsules contain the two active ingredients as microspheres, which are expected to minimize the impact of chewing or biting. Additionally, capsules are generally easier t

Saniona slutför inlämningen till FDA av tillverkningsdata för Tesometkapslar18.10.2021 14:00:00 CEST | Pressemelding

PRESSMEDDELANDE 18 oktober 2021 Saniona (OMX: SANION), ett biofarmaceutiskt företag med klinisk utveckling fokuserad på sällsynta sjukdomar, meddelar idag att alla uppgifter som det amerikanska läkemedelsverket FDA tidigare begärt in om bolagets program för kemi, tillverkning och kontroll (CMC) avseende Tesometkapslar nu har lämnats in. I och med att dessa uppgifter lämnats in förväntas Saniona att enligt plan kunna inleda kliniska studier i Fas 2b med Tesomet innan utgången av 2021. Det finns ett flertal möjliga fördelar med att erbjuda Tesomet som kapsel istället för tablett till personer som lever med Prader-Willis syndrom eller hypotalamisk fetma. Vissa av dessa drabbade individer tenderar att tugga sönder tabletter, vilket skulle kunna påverka effekten av den fasta doskombinationen av Tesomets aktiva substanser negativt. Tesometkapslarna innehåller de två aktiva substanserna i form av mikrosfärer, vilket väntas minimera påverkan från tuggande och bitande. Kapslar är dessutom i all
