AirConnect® 8230

5G NR/LTE Dual Mode Outdoor Router

BEC AirConnect® 8230 5G NR/LTE Dual Mode Outdoor Router

The BEC AirConnect® 8230 5G NR/LTE, Dual Mode outdoor router, allows operators to unlock the full potential of Fixed Wireless Access (FWA). Today, many operators deploy FWA over 4G LTE networks; the AirConnect® 8230 can be deployed on those existing networks and support a seamless path to 5G NR for greater bandwidth and better spectral efficiency.

Designed for performance, the AirConnect® 8230 supports 5G sub-6 GHz Non-Standalone (NSA) and Standalone (SA) modes and Gigabit LTE CAT 16. The integrated high-gain 4×4 MIMO embedded dual-polarization / dual slant antenna technology offers efficient bi-directional transmission for increased capacity and coverage.
