HFCL Limited, one of India’s leading technology enterprise and integrated next-gen communications product and solution providers, has unveiled a pioneering suite of 5G products and network solutions at the India Mobile Congress 2023, Asia’s one of the largest telecom and digital technology forums, held on the from the 27th to the 29th of October.

HFCL launched a comprehensive suite of next-gen connectivity products and solutions for the international markets, including 5G FWA (Fixed Wireless Access) CPE (Customer Premise Equipment), IP MPLS Routers, 2 Gbps UBR (Unlicensed Band Radio), and 1728-high fibre count IBR (Intermittently Bonded Ribbon) Optical Fibre Cable.

HFCL has unveiled its own designed and developed 5G FWA (Fixed Wireless Access) CPE (Customer Premise Equipment) solution in various variants. Pioneering innovative technology products, HFCL’s portfolio of Indoor and Outdoor 5G FWA CPE products will accelerate wireless broadband penetration in urban and rural areas and help bridge the last-mile connectivity challenge in key global markets.

Built to complement wired broadband connections in areas where fibre rollout is limited, HFCL’s range of 5G FWA CPE support both 5G SA and NSA technologies across multiple Sub-6 GHz and mmWave frequency bands to offer cost-effective and fibre-like speeds to customers using the 5G network.

A Groundbreaking Offering

Marking a significant leap in offering 5G backhauling and carrier-grade enterprise wireless connectivity, the launch of 2 Gbps UBR positions HFCL as a dominant player in the growing Indian and global UBR market. This innovative product offers a low-latency, 2 Gbps connectivity solution, which can operate across an extended 5GHz frequency range. It is designed for easy installation, effortless management and high reliability.

Additionally, it has advanced security features to protect from external threat vectors. Further, in comparison to traditional backhaul solutions, 5G wireless backhauling with 2 Gbps UBR will enable HFCL’s customers to save up to 75% on the total cost of ownership (TCO).

Further, addressing the connectivity needs and bandwidth challenges faced by telcos and enterprises in the fast-evolving digital landscape, HFCL has also launched revolutionary IP MPLS Routers. The comprehensive IP MPLS Router product line introduced by HFCL aims to empower telcos to backhaul 5G networks, fibre broadband networks and provide last mile connectivity to enterprises in urban metros and tier 2 cities. This IP MPLS Router portfolio will help HFCL’s customers build scalable and efficient networks that are capable of handling different types of data traffic, support Quality of Service (QoS) for bandwidth prioritization and avoid network congestion.

Accelerating 5G Installation

Along with these, HFCL has also introduced its 1728-high-fibre count Intermittently Bonded Ribbon (IBR) Optical Fibre Cable that will allow telcos and enterprises to accelerate installation of 5G network infrastructure, expand FTTH capabilities and address the rising demand for high-capacity networks particularly from hyperscale data centres. The gel-free IBR cable is also optimised with high productivity mass fusion splicing for cost efficient deployment, easy installation in congested areas and quick restoration in case of any accidental outage.

Mahendra Nahata, Managing Director at HFCL said, “To address the requirements of countries to fast-track digital transformation by building a robust 5G network infrastructure, we are immensely proud to launch our comprehensive ensemble of next-gen technologies including 5G FWA CPE, IP MPLS Routers, 2Gbps UBR along with UcNMS and 1728-high fiber IBR Optical Fibre Cable.

He added: “HFCL aims to play a crucial role in deploying high-speed broadband networks and offer last-mile connectivity across India and the key global markets. With a strong focus on R&D, we believe that our uniquely designed and developed products and solutions are perfectly suitable to meet the goals of fiberisation and network connectivity demand from telecom operators, data centres, and enterprises.”
