MWC Los Angeles -- Fixed wireless access technology specialist Pivotal Commware is expecting to ship its first commercial 5G equipment in December 2019.
CEO Brian Deutsch told Light Reading this week that its 28GHz Echo 5G subscriber unit will be available before the end of this year, and the company aims to get it priced at a unit cost of $200. Deutsch added that a 39GHz version will follow "a few months after that." A 24GHz version of the unit is in development.
These millimeter-wave (mmWave) production units look like more ordinary routers or repeaters than earlier test units from the company. CEO Deutsch showed off the Echo 5G unit's capabilities by sending downloads at speeds of over a 1 Gbit/s.
