Verizon Business Internet Gateway

Verizon Business Internet, which is the carrier’s fixed wireless access (FWA) business offering, has introduced a Wi-Fi 7-compatible internet gateway and a tri-band 5G receiver.

The Verizon Business Internet Gateway supports both 5G C-band and Wi-Fi 7. The carrier clearly is enthusiastic about Wi-Fi 7, which it says offers increased bandwidth, accelerated connectivity, and greater reliability and responsiveness.

The company said that the self-installable router from Verizon Business Internet has an intuitive UX design, external antenna ports aimed at simplifying installations, and an enlarged footprint.

The Internet gateway supports private networks and network slicing, as well as both standalone and non-standalone (SA and NSA) networks.

The gateway’s features include:

  • Download link (DL) 4×4 multiple input/multiple output (MIMO) for all LTE and new radio (NR) bands;
  • 4 carrier aggregation on NR bands;
  • 4 sub-miniature version A (SMA) ports for external antennas;
  • a 2.5Gbps WAN port; and
  • accessories that include battery backup, wall mount and external antenna mounting hardware.

“Verizon Business Internet Gateway’s Wi-Fi 7 compatibility is a major development for the industry, but this device’s broader strength is its ability to provide faster, more stable service for our business customers,” Vijay Paulrajan, the service provider’s vice president, devices and device services, said in a press release.

“We designed the router with external antenna support for added flexibility in challenging signal locations in buildings. In addition, there is a robust accessory ecosystem including a battery backup for power outage situations.”

The 5G Business Receiver can toggle between Verizon 5G mmWave, C-band and LTE CAT21 networks. The service provider said that it is optimized for both indoor and outdoor applications.
