14 December 2018 (Sydney): NetComm today launched its new Enhanced Hybrid LTE Gateway that will enable network operators to deliver immediate and always-on high-speed connectivity to their broadband customers.
The Enhanced Hybrid 4G LTE Gateway (NL1901ACV) can deliver fixed-broadband services on the Australian National Broadband Network or the New Zealand Ultra-Fast Broadband network – as well as on legacy ADSL2+ networks - and has LTE functionality to enable always-on connectivity if the fixed-broadband connection is interrupted.
The dual-mode device will enable operators to connect newly signed customers to high-speed LTE broadband services immediately with no delay whilst they are waiting for their fixed-line connection to be activated.
The Enhanced Hybrid LTE Gateway supports all LTE carrier bands being used across the Australian and New Zealand markets.
This always on connectivity will be particularly attractive for the SME business market where customers need to have the peace of mind of constant high-speed connectivity to support the needs of their business.
Els Baert, Director of Marketing & Communications at NetComm said:
“Today’s broadband customers expect to be connected as fast as possible to their service.
“A delayed activation means an unhappy customer, so the immediate 4G connectivity provided by the Enhanced Hybrid LTE Gateway is a big win for customers and network operators.
“Broadband customers also hate being offline – even for a short time - so the 4G back-up on the Enhanced Hybrid LTE Gateway provides a great way for operators to deliver a seamless always-on connection to keep their customers happy.”
