Cisco and AT&T announced today a new digital buying experience that makes it faster and easier for businesses everywhere to take advantage of 5G Fixed Wireless Access (FWA).

For businesses looking to quickly extend connectivity across diverse campus and branch office environments, Cisco's newest line of cellular gateways, the Meraki MG52 and MG52E, are the first true-5G, Standalone (SA) capable, discreet FWA devices to offer cloud-managed eSIM technology powered by Cisco IoT Control Center. Available this summer, the new devices are paired exclusively with an integrated wireless WAN service experience and zero-touch, instant-on provisioning from AT&T, customers can simply plug the device into power and provision AT&T's 5G connectivity through the Cisco Meraki dashboard.

The new Cisco cloud-managed FWA devices can scale robust, always-on, highly secure 5G connected experiences nationwide* making it simpler for businesses to take advantage of:

  • Increased operational efficiency with scalable and flexible management

  • Minimized downtime and disruptions with seamless, resilient network performance

  • Greater return on investment with long-lasting, durably designed FWA devices

  • Flexibility to deploy in difficult-to-reach locations

  • Ability to deploy branch sites within minutes with instant-on, built-in AT&T 5G connectivity

With a complimentary 30-day introductory period, businesses can reduce deployment times for branch connectivity through self-service purchasing of AT&T data plans directly from the Cisco Meraki dashboard. Instant-on data from AT&T will also allow for immediate provisioning of full-stack Cisco networks to accelerate "day zero" operations.
