Fibocom Launches New FG170(W) & FM170(W) 5G Sub-6GHz and mmWave Module

As a global leading provider of IoT (Internet of Things) wireless solutions and wireless communication modules, Fibocom launches the 5G Sub-6GHz and mmWave modules: FG170(W) and FM170(W) at MWC Las Vegas 2022. Powered by Snapdragon X65 5G Modem-RF System, Fibocom FG170(W) & FM170(W) are designed to offer a fiber-like wireless connectivity experience with extended network coverage, boosted throughput, and increased capability, further enhancing 5G performance in FWA, Industrial IoT, C-V2X, private network, and other mass data scenarios.


Compliant with 3GPP R16 standard, the new Fibocom 5G modules have four variants that adopt LGA and M.2 form factors separately, bringing larger bandwidth by combining NR CA (Carrier Aggregation) into module design. Fibocom FG170(W) and FM170W support 5G Sub-6GHz and mmWave dual connectivity as well as 8CC CA, delivering multi-gigabit speeds as the result of the unique capability to reach 800 MHz of mmWave spectrum. FG170 and FM170 support 5G Sub-6GHz connectivity as well as 4CC CA and up to 300MHz of spectrum, to improve the utilization of spectrum resource and ensure an extended 5G coverage.


It is worth mentioning that the Fibocom FM170(W)/FG170(W) module support 4×4 MIMO (multiple input, multiple output) in the low-frequency band, enhancing the spectral efficiency and coverage quality in locations which generally have poorer connection. In addition, the 5G modules support Power Class 1.5 (PC1.5) HPUE, which increases the uplink speed and extends uplink coverage, improving cell edge performance.

Along with abundant functionalities such as digital audio, VoLTE and SMS, Fibocom FG170(W)/FM170(W) module series support multi-constellation GNSS, which provides high-performance positioning and navigation. Meanwhile, they integrate multiple operating systems (Linux/ Android/ Windows OS), various Internet protocols as well as industry-standard interfaces, allowing much flexibility and ease of integration for customer’s deployment.


Dan Schieler, SVP of IoT Abroad Gross sales Dept., Fibocom, commented: “We’re proud to announce the launch of our progressive 5G Sub-6 and mmWave module sequence at MWC Las Vegas 2022. Fibocom has been dedicated to boosting 5G commercialization worldwide. Primarily based on the Snapdragon X65 5G Modem-RF System, the brand new technology of 5G modules are to offer verticals with superior connectivity efficiency.”
