Telefonica developing 10G Open Access router with Wi-Fi 6

Tuesday 26 February 2019 | 15:36 CET | News
Telefonica used MWC 2019 to present the first prototype of an Open Access network to deliver converged fixed, mobile and edge computing. The operator said it's advancing in the disaggregation and virtualisation of its mobile (open radio node) and fixed (open OLT) access network equipment via a new prototype router dubbed xHGU that will be rolled out to customers by 2020. The new prototype router integrates Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) functionality, improving coverage and boosting speeds to 10 Gbps.
