Cisco and T-Mobile Soothe Wired Broadband Pain Points

Cisco and T-Mobile Soothe Wired Broadband Pain Points

By Greg Tavarez

Customers constantly seek out new ways to interact with the products and services they use and the organizations they rely on. As a result, businesses look to open highly connected locations and service centers built around more immersive digital experiences, and they want to launch the sites quickly.

The thing is, most locations require fast, reliable, and always-on connectivity; that said, new wired connections can take weeks to install. Once installed, wired troubleshooting requires complex and time-consuming rewiring. It seems wired broadband is not the ideal solution anymore as wireless continues taking over.

So, Cisco and T-Mobile are soothing the pain points that come with wired broadband with plans to offer businesses Cisco Meraki's 5G cellular gateways for fixed wireless access, the MG51 and MG51E.

With these devices, branch-based businesses can take advantage of next-gen 5G fixed wireless access for high-performance connectivity, instant provisioning and simple, sophisticated site management.

The T-Mobile managed service will offer a range of advanced capabilities based on the Cisco Meraki platform, including same-day connectivity, robust performance up to 2 Gbps download/300 Mbps upload, lower latency and security, and SD-Branch capabilities on the Cisco Meraki platform.

“The future of connectivity is wireless,” said Masum Mir, Senior Vice President, Provider Mobility, Cisco Networking. “Together, we are leading the new era of 5G, helping businesses from small to large with simple, secure and reliable connectivity solutions that help them go fast and grow fast.”

For businesses in retail, food services, healthcare and manufacturing and supply chain, the MG51 and MG51E enable greater agility for branch expansions by providing seamless network management from a single dashboard, no matter the number of locations.

"We have crossed many 5G milestones and world-firsts with Cisco and today is no exception as T-Mobile is the first to offer this cutting-edge Cisco Meraki technology," said Mishka Dehghan, Senior Vice President of Strategy, Product and Solutions Engineering, T-Mobile Business Group.

5G fixed wireless access connected through the Meraki platform unlocks various capabilities that elevate the way branch-based businesses serve their customers. The MG51 and MG51E devices give companies the ability to stay competitive and respond to emerging market dynamics faster.
