Compliant with3GPP Release 17 standard, Fibocom FG190(W)/FM190(W) module series are adoptingLGA and M.2 form factors into module design, efficiently driving theflexibility and scalability in a various of IoT terminal devices. By leveragingthe spectrum resources for a broader reach of faster speeds, the module series supportSub-6 GHz and mmWave dual-connectivity, as well as NR 10CA with up to 1000MHz bandwidth in the mmWave frequency band, significantlyboosting the maximum downlink speed of up to 10Gbps.
In addition to the Fx190 series, Fibocom launches the FG180(W)/FM180(W)series based on the Snapdragon X72, which supports up to 400MHz bandwidth of NR4CA under mmwave bands, and 200MHz bandwidth of NR 3CA under Sub-6GHz, themaximum downlink rate under the aggregation of the two can reach 4.4Gbps. TheFx180 series is optimized for the FWA market and supports multi-gigabit uplinkand downlink rates.
It is worth notingthat FM190(W)/FM180(W) series are M.2 standard and pin compatible with FibocomFM170/FM160/FM150 5G module series. However, FG190(W)/FG180(W) series aredesign to provide Open CPU solution with rich interfaces such as PCIe,Ethernet, USXGMII, UART, I2S, USB 3.1 and UIM. Featuring on the fast-growing 5GFWA market, FG190(W)/FG180(W) series offers a comprehensive module solution incombination with the latest Wi-Fi 7 technology, including Tri-band Wi-Fi 7 forCPE (BE19000) and Dual-band Wi-Fi 7 for MiFi (BE5800). Benefiting from theWi-Fi 7 capabilities such as 160MHz/320MHz bandwidth, 6GHz frequency band, 4096QAM,as well as Multi-Link Operation (MLO), ensuring the Wi-Fi network coverage and betterspeed experience in home, enterprise and manufacturing plants. It is worthnoting that the FG190(W)/FG180(W) series also supports wired networkdeployment, allowing maximum 10Gb Ethernet, satisfying different applicationrequirements. Fibocom Fx190(W)/Fx180(W) series alsosupports a variety of global operating systems, including OpenWRT and RDK-B, tofurther help customers reduce time to the market.
