The GigaSpire BLAST u6e premises systems function as a mesh satellite. These are tri-band (2.4 GHz, 5 GHz, and 6 GHz) premises systems that are particularly designed to provide augmented coverage while tapping the benefits of the newly available 6GHz band. With carrier-class reliability and performance, the systems can be ceiling mounted and wall mounted.



GigaSpire BLAST u6me is a tri-band mesh satellite. Offering greater connectivity to new Wi-Fi 6E-compatible devices, the GigaSpire BLAST u6me enables subscribers to adopt innovative technology in a cost-effective manner. It can also provide extended coverage in large areas.

Meanwhile, the GigaSpire BLAST u8xe leverages a single system deployment model. This enables the tri-band Wi-Fi 6E system to facilitate users to support XGS PON, GPON, and 10 Gig E (Active Ethernet) on their premises with utmost flexibility.



These Wi-Fi 6E-enabled trailblazing solutions will allow the telco to enhance subscriber experience with improved network efficiency while boosting broadband businesses with recurring revenue streams.
