Comsol, Verizon and Samsung plan fixed wireless 5G trials in South Africa to rival fibre

Thursday 17 May 2018 | 11:15 CET | News
Comsol Networks said it is working with Verizon and Samsung to launch 5G fixed wireless trials in South Africa. They aim to delivering a product rivals FTTx by early-2019. This will be achieved using the "pre-5G" proprietary standard from Verizon's 5G Technical Forum (5GTF), which will ultimately be converted into the 5G New Radio (5GNR) standards once they have been confirmed, Comsol said.
