Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) in 5G networks is an increasingly popular access network technology that brings broadband services to residential and business locations where wired/optical infrastructure is not viable.
It uses wireless technologies to connect two fixed locations, eliminating the need for last-mile investments.
In rural areas where population density is low and far from central offices, the cost of providing high-speed internet connectivity via wired infrastructure would be significant. FWA, with its technological features and cost efficiency, enables users not only to enjoy higher data speeds, but also to access various multimedia applications which are taken for granted in industrialised countries today.
In industry, devices will achieve significant capacity increases and low-latency connections. 5G FWA will improve network performance and provide high-speed network coverage that is better than existing connectivity networks and will reshape the landscape of various industries.
