AT&T Broadband Gateway 320 

Launch 2020
AT&T exclusive Fiber modem and AX router combination
The BGW320 is AT&Ts newest flagship broadband gateway (modem+router) which will be distributed to 25m homes nationwide. Gateways are rented to customers and must be designed to be returned, refurbished and redeployed which makes them unique from the prototypical consumer electronic supply chain. Since Fiber internet is a permanent utility once installed, Gateways are designed with an indefinite lifespan. This project pushed me to work directly with supply chain and mechanical engineering resources to develop a solution innate to the organizations needs.

The BGW320s form factor lends to a visually less obtrusive product compared to its predecessor and encourages users to place it above ground and in an open space where its antennas can be at peak performance. It is also designed to vent heat without a fan to eliminate ambient noise and reduce points of failure.
