Fibocom, a global leading provider of IoT (Internet of Things) wireless solutions and wireless communication modules, has announced a regional version of the FG360 5G module series. The variant FG360-MEA is designed to support the frequency bands in the Middle East and Africa, allowing telecom operators and device manufacturers to deploy the 5G solution in a fast and cost-effective manner.
Fibocom FG360-MEA is a high-performance sub-6 GHz 5G module tailor-made for the Middle East and Africa markets. Incorporating optional 6 or 8 antenna configurations, along with 2 x 2.5G SGMII and 4 x PCIe Gen 3 on the interface settings, allows customers to apply flexible hardware designs based on diversified market demands. By leveraging the 2CC CA (Carrier Aggregation) capability with a bandwidth of 200 MHz, FG360-MEA delivers an optimal 5G experience with enhanced speed, greater capacity, and reduced network latency for terminals such as CPE, ODU, gateways, routers and industrial and medical devices.
"Driven by the exploration of service offerings requiring high bandwidth and low latency and the availability of a wide range of devices at attractive price points, the Middle East and North Africa market remains strong, with strong growth in 5G subscriptions and forecasts to see these account for 32 percent of the total in 2028 as more countries issue licenses and spectrum to enable 5G network investment." According to the Ericsson Mobility Report released in June 2023, by launching the FG360-MEA, Fibocom enriches the 5G module solution with a comprehensive capability to accelerate the commercialization of 5G FWA in the Middle East and Africa markets.
Furthermore, it is worth mentioning that the FG360-MEA module also allows end devices to enjoy dramatically faster wireless connections with the combination of high-speed 5G and Wi-Fi 6 by addressing the configurations of MT7915+MT7975 reaching up to AX1800/AX3600, and the engineering sample of the FG360-MEA is now available.
"We are proud to launch the next trailblazing 5G wireless module in the Middle East and Africa region and provide support for innovative mobile broadband devices by our market-leading technology experts", says Lars Thyroff, General Manager of Fibocom Wireless EU GmbH. "By adopting multiple optimizations on FG360-MEA, the module solution will bring Gigabit wireless experience to both individual and enterprise users in the local market."
