Why FWA makes sense today

Learn everything about Cost-effective Fixed Wireless Access.

4G and 5G fixed wireless unlocks a world of opportunity

Are you aware that up to 50% of the world’s population is still waiting for reliable broadband access? This large number of underserved households represents a profitable fixed wireless access (FWA) growth opportunity for current 3GPP operators — and our recent studies show fixed wireless access investments typically have a payback time of less than two years.

The evolution towards 5G sees FWA solutions on a massive scale, with up to 100 times more capacity than 4G networks. 5G FWA doesn’t only eliminate the need for costly deployment of deep-fiber fixed access infrastructure, it offers peak rates that few fixed technologies are able to match.

Advances in radio technology-gains in spectrum and demand for broadband everywhere make now the perfect time to develop your 4G and 5G fixed wireless access offering. By delivering broadband over existing 4G mobile networks and now available 5G ones, network operators now have the business opportunity to bridge the digital divide.

Are you ready to win millions of new customers and tab into a new stream of revenues?

Invest in a FWA network that utilizes existing radio network and spectrum assets

To fully grasp the potential value of FWA, you need the tools to utilize your existing network assets in the most efficient way. That’s why we’ve developed our Ericsson Radio System to be modular – to fully support your FWA deployment, with minimum initial investments. Ericsson Radio System is ready to meet future requirements in speeds and capacity growth by simply adding 5G in new bands and in existing 4G bands, dynamically assigning resources between both following the traffic demands, something only possible with the unique Ericsson Spectrum Sharing capability.
