(Telecom-NewsWire.Net, September 07, 2017 ) Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) is a growing business opportunity for operators, who wish to deliver high-quality broadband access to subscriber homes, using LTE as a complement to fiber. At present, it has emerged as one of the major use cases for early 5G network rollouts. Recently, a study titled “5G for Fixed Wireless Access: 2017 - 2030 - Opportunities, Challenges, Strategies & Forecasts” has been published to the wide online repository of Market Research Hub (MRH). This 213-pages study presents an in-depth assessment of the emerging 5G-based FWA ecosystem including key market drivers, challenges, enabling technologies, revenue potential, application scenarios, service provider deployment commitments, spectrum availability/allocation, vendor profiles and their key strategies.
With an extensive forecast period of 2017 to 2030, the study aims to provide details on future growth prospects along with FWA investments and operator services. It has been analyzed that, in the U.S., Verizon Communications and AT&T have both identified 5G fixed wireless access as the first phase of deploying next-generation networks; timelines suggest this first wave is tracking for commercialization in 2017, well ahead of the standardization goal of 2020. As per the study highlights, 5G-based FWA subscriptions are anticipated to account for $1 Billion in service revenue by the end of 2019.
Initially, the study starts by defining the detailed market overview which deeply covers 5G architecture, requirements and applications. Fixed Wireless Access, or FWA, is a well-known means of providing internet access to homes using wireless mobile network technology instead of fixed lines. The research finds that the further evolution toward 5G has the potential to take FWA to a whole new level. This is because 5G offers extraordinary technology options that make it possible to use larger lumps of radio spectrum and provide consumers with benefits like low latency (1ms) and major capacity improvements.
Multiple mobile operators and service providers are initially seeking to capitalize on 5G as a fixed wireless alternative to deliver last-mile connectivity – at multi-hundred Megabit and Gigabit speeds. The study further also adds that the 28 GHz frequency band is widely preferred for early 5G-based FWA deployments, as many vendors have already developed 28 GHz-capable equipment – driven by demands for early field trials in multiple markets including the United States and South Korea. Looking to various key factors, analysts find that the market is further expected to grow at a CAGR of approximately 84% between 2019 and 2025, eventually accounting for more than $40 Billion.
Also, the next stage of FWA will utilize 5G network technology, such as beamforming and a high-frequency mmWave (millimeter wave) spectrum, to provide a considerable performance boost to wireless broadband services. However, with the aim of competing effectually against existing mobile infrastructure giants, they will need to closely align their multi-gigabit capacity FWA solutions with 3GPP specifications. Furthermore, the research outlines the details on key companies operating in this market. Some of them include 3GPP, Aviat Networks, AT&T, ALCOMA, C Spire, Carlson Wireless Technologies, E-Band Communications, Cielo Networks, FastBack Networks, Go Long Wireless, Google, Facebook, IBM Corporation, KT Corporation and others.
