Thursday 9 September 2021 | 09:15 CET | News
Orange Spain said it has teamed up with Ericsson to install a network in the rural locality of Castro del Rey in Galicia that uses Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) as alternative to fibre. Specifically, the partners have set up a 5G node (gNodeB) co-located with an LTE node (eNodeB) to provide high-speed broadband services to local company Agroamb. The operator set up a joint venture with Cinfo, Gammera Nest and Optare Solutions to carry out the use case.
