Nokia comes with Fast Mile system 4G in rural areas




Nokia has released an LTE based system called Fast Mile, which allows users in areas outside the normal range of an LTE base station can still enjoy relatively fast Internet without interruptions.

The system is designed for residential areas where no wired broadband connection is and outside areas where hardly reach with 4G connections. The name Fast Mile also refers “to bridge last mile ‘to the to achieve a good connection. At Fast Mile is located an antenna on the outside of the housing which is in communication with a router indoors. In this way, the problem of walls with reinforced concrete or other disruption to a relatively good 4G signal tackled indoors.

The system would also function better than other 4G-routers with an antenna outside as the signal to the router will be forwarded via wifi and GigE. The external antenna is tuned directly to the nearest LTE base station specific LTE ran a configuration supports for fixed wireless broadband. This should provide a data transfer rate that is up to 2.5 times faster than using a normal mobile network. The connection makes use of unused upper ‘legacy frequencies of the LTE signal in remote areas.

Nokia will show Fast Mile at the Mobile World Congress in late February. Whether network providers who have shown interest in the technology is not yet known.
