BiPAC 5700 brings new opportunities to the commercial applications of VR/AR/AV, which need to be combined with big data, AI, and IoT, and require real-time transmission of large amounts of data to avoid latency. BiPAC 5700 is a 5G Sub-6GHz VPN outdoor router that can provide a 5G network with high bandwidth and low latency and can support high-speed cloud computing and ensure smooth data transmission to lift application restrictions on 8K ultra-high resolution image quality and 3D model image computing.

Both BiPAC 5700 and BiPAC 4700 outdoor routers support IPv4/IPv6 dual network and VPN connection and encryption, so commercial users can build a private encrypted channel on the public Internet between offices for secure data transmission. In addition, with the help of Billion Electric’s central management system, all routers can be easily managed from different sites to reduce labor costs, and provide maintenance engineers with remote control functions.

Its casing complies with the IP67 dustproof and waterproof rating, allowing it to withstand extreme cold and severe weather and stably provide a safe and high-performance mobile wireless network. The built-in 6KV surge protection and 15KV ESD protector can effectively prevent damage caused by lightning surges and electro-static discharge, ensuring the safe and reliable operation of the device.

“By the end of June 2021, 58 Japanese enterprises have obtained or applied for 5G spectrum licenses. Cable TV operators, manufacturers and educational institutions have actively cooperated with local governments to promote the application of 5G with higher transmission speed, wider coverage, higher reliability, and lower latency,” said Greg Chen, General Manager of Billion Electric. “Currently, BiPAC 5700 is the most advanced 5G Sub-6GHz all-round high-efficiency and multifunctional commercial outdoor router, which can provide users with stable and safe low-latency, high-speed Internet services in areas where cable network is not easy to deploy, where cable network services are not available, or where wireless network services are required. In particular, since BiPAC 5700 uses the advanced communication technology that meets the 5G standard, it can rely on its high-performance Internet speed and greatly increased network coverage to further assist customers in expanding the deployment of 5G Sub-6GHz wireless network.”

5G FWA, the Fastest Growing Residential Broadband Service, to Exceed 58 Million Subscriptions in 2026

ABI Research | August 17, 2021

The worldwide residential broadband market reached a subscriber's base of over 1.1 billion in 2020, a 4% increase from the previous year. Not surprisingly, the COVID-19 pandemic accelerated demand for broadband connectivity. The need for high-capacity residential broadband will remain strong, even after the pandemic recovery. According to global tech market advisory firm ABI Research, 5G Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) will be the fastest-growing residential broadband segment to increase at a CAGR of 71%, exceeding 58 million subscribers in 2026. Remote working, online learning, e-commerce, and virtual healthcare drove high-speed broadband demand throughout 2020. The significant increase in the use of internet-based home entertainment such as video streaming and online gaming also pushed existing broadband users to upgrade their broadband service to a higher-tier package, while households without broadband access signed up for new subscriptions. "Increasing adoption of internet-connected devices, smart TVs, and smart home devices, as well as consumers' media consumption through internet applications, will continue to drive high-speed broadband adoption in the years to come. In addition, many businesses are allowing remote working for some of their employees after the pandemic, which will boost the need for home broadband services even further," explains Khin Sandi Lynn, Industry Analyst at ABI Research. To fulfill demand, broadband operators are investing heavily in expanding higher-capacity broadband networks. While some cable operators continue to invest in and upgrade to the DOCSIS 3.1 specification, the cable standardization body, CableLabs, and other industry players are already working toward DOCSIS 4.0 technology. "Although cable companies don't anticipate the need to deploy the new cable standard any time soon, Comcast has completed a lab test of DOCSIS 4.0 full-duplex system-on-chip from Broadband in April 2021. Cable companies are likely to stretch the life of the existing DOCSIS 3.1 standard for a few more years. However, DOCSIS 4.0 can support speeds of up to 10 Gbps downstream and 6 Gbps upstream, enabling improved customer experiences as well as the use of AR/VR or bandwidth-demanding services, which will certainly emerge in the future," says Lynn. Similarly, telcos continue to upgrade their xDSL to Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) networks. In addition, FWA services are a cost-effective alternative when the deployment of a high-speed fixed broadband network is not economically feasible. Ongoing 5G network deployment alongside the development of extended 5G mmWave solutions will allow service providers to offer high-speed 5G FWA services in both urban and low-density areas. 5G FWA services are expected to represent 4% of residential broadband services in 2026, growing from less than 1% in 2020. As residential broadband penetration saturates mature markets, competition among broadband operators is likely to create challenges to maintain market shares. "In addition to network upgrades, broadband operators need to invest in cutting-edge software and hardware to optimize network performance and support better user experiences. Providing advanced home networking devices, internet security, and home network self-diagnosis tools can help service providers reduce churn and improve average revenue per user," Lynn concludes.
