Featuring a 2.5 Gbps Ethernet interface for high-speed data transfer, the HFCL 5G solution has an embedded eSIM.

It is a plug-and-play device that includes an AI-integrated mobile app, enabling user-friendly self-installation and helping identify the best signal location, the company said.

“This partnership is another endeavour to support the Indian government’s vision of creating a sustainable telecom ecosystem by promoting local manufacturing,” said Evan Su, General Manager, Wireless Communications, MediaTek.

“Our modem propels their vision by offering full functionality, enabling device makers to create high-performance CPE products in the smallest, yet the most efficient form factors,” Su added.

As per industry estimates, the global 5G last-mile equipment market is projected to reach $68 billion by 2030.
