The Indoor CPE (“WLTFDQ-154AX”) is powered by the Fibocom L860 module with the Intel® XMM™ 7560 4G modem that supports maximum Cat16 LTE speeds for downlink at up to 1Gbps. WLTFDQ-154AX also includes a powerful embedded quad-core networking processor, wide band MIMO antenna, Wi-Fi 6, VoLTE, and multi-gigabit interface. With a flexible modular design, the platform is ready to adopt the Fibocom FG100 embedded module with the Intel® XMM™ 8160 5G modem for 5G NR capability. The 5G CPE will cover mainstream sub-6GHz frequencies with support for multi-Gbps throughput, including EN-DC capabilities for combining 5G and LTE bandwidth. It can be self-installed anywhere in the home and is suitable in locations with good indoor signal strength.
The outdoor CPE (“WLTQD-128”) is powered by the same Fibocom/Intel module with Gemtek’s sophisticated outdoor design, supporting industrial grade environmental specifications and includes assistance software for professional installation. With embedded directional high-gain antenna and beamforming technology, this device is suitable for rural or longer reach locations far away from base stations. WLTQD-128 supports both pole and wall mounting to achieve best network efficiency even under poor cellular coverage conditions. WLTQD-128 also can attach to an optional indoor power over Ethernet (PoE) router to support Wi-Fi and voice to share a single power source and unified remote management system as one device.
