Fixed wireless access unlocks a world of opportunity
Are you aware that up to 50% of the world’s population are 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.
FWA is a more cost-effective and efficient alternative to providing broadband in areas with limited access to fixed broadband services such as DSL, cable or fiber. Advances in radio technology gains in spectrum and demand for broadband everywhere make now the perfect time to develop your FWA offering. By delivering broadband over existing 4G mobile networks and upcoming 5G ones, network operators now have the opportunity to bridge the digital divide and win millions of new customers.

FWA makes even more business sense with the evolution to 5G
The business case for using FWA as an add-on to mobile broadband only becomes stronger as LTE advances to 5G. With the ability to use larger chunks of radio spectrum to provide improved latency and capacity, the evolution to 5G will take fixed wireless access to a whole new level.
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.
