Fixed wireless access is an internet service delivered wirelessly to the customer’s home or business. It goes by several different names —FWA, fixed wireless broadband, and wireless internet, among others. FWA differs from mobile
broadband in that the service location —home or business —is a static, nonmoving location, which generally relies on asingle transmitter for service. The customer premises equipment (CPE) can be as simple as a desktop router or, in some instances,may leverage an antenna attached to a single spot on the building for an optimal signal. Connectivity is then dispersed through the location via wired or wireless means, such as Wi-Fi.
While 5G is bringing a renaissance to this type of connectivity, it is important to note that FWA is not new. LTE offerings of FWA have been around for years, largely in the form of smaller wireless internet service providers serving rural communities. But 5G’s ability to deliver faster speeds, along with guaranteed service-level agreements (SLAs), is renewing interest in FWA.
