Fiber must be deployed to bring data to premises and neighborhoods, but several technologies can serve the last mile, either wired or wireless. These technologies have different advantages and constraints. Wireless technology such as Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) can provide good broadband speed and is a realistic and profitable alternative to fiber. With the 5G wireless communication protocol, FWA is gaining traction both at sub 6 GHz frequencies and in millimeter wavelengths (mmWave). FWA offers an easy, rapid, and cost-effective solution for last mile connectivity compared to its wireline rivals. It suits suburban and rural areas where the cost of wired solutions is expensive. FWA use licensed spectrum using 4G LTE and 5G protocols or unlicensed spectrum on the 802.11 Wi-Fi standard at sub 7 GHz frequencies mmWave. FWA is entering a new dimension thanks to mmWave solutions offering fiber-like speed. FWA adoption is pushed both by the industry and public policies. Governments want to reduce ‘digital divides’ since the access to internet drives economic growth. Government and public institutions see FWA as a way to narrow digital divides. For Mobile Network Operators (MNOs), FWA represents an additional revenue opportunity as FWA can reuse existing network infrastructure and optimize capacity consumption of the network… For more information about this analysis, please contact us!
