What is Fixed Wireless Access (FWA)?

What is Fixed Wireless Access (FWA)

Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) is a terrestrial wireless communication technology that utilizes radio frequency (RF) spectrum to provide high-speed data connectivity to end-users.

This technology operates through a network of wireless base stations (BS) and high-gain Customer Premises Equipment (CPE), which can be hosted indoors and outdoors. Outdoor CPEs can receive connectivity from a longer distance than indoor ones. WiFi access points also relay connectivity to user equipment (UE), such as mobile phones, laptops, or desktops, connecting them to the network.

FWA has gained momentum as a solution to overcome the limitations of wired broadband connections., such as providing high-speed internet connectivity in rural areas where fiber optics installation is not feasible. With 5G technology, FWA is a cost-effective alternative to fiber optic networks with multi-gigabit speed.

How 5G Fixed Wireless Access Technology Works

Fixed wireless access (FWA) is a wireless communication technology that enables high-speed internet access to homes, businesses, and other designated locations. It transmits data signals through radio waves over a wireless connection between a fixed antenna and a cellular base station. Here is a simplified overview of how FWA works:
How Fixed Wireless Access Technology Works

A network provider (ISP/Carrier) installs an outdoor CPE (Customer Premise Equipment), typically a 4G/5G router, on the roof, outside a building, or self-installable indoor CPE at home.

  • The CPE communicates with a nearby cellular base station, typically a cell tower.
  • The cellular base station connects all devices through the CPE device to the internet backbone, providing high-speed internet access to the building.
  • Inside the building, a Wi-Fi router distributes the internet connection to connected devices such as computers, smartphones, and smart home devices.

FWA is easier and faster to install since there is no need for laying cables or digging trenches. FWA can also provide internet access to remote or rural areas where wired infrastructure is not available or costly to deploy. Nybsys offers complete FWA solutions for cellular operators and Wireless Internet services providers to connect all unconnected households.

Fixed Wireless Access - A New Revenue Opportunity for Mobile Network Operators (MNOs)

FWA presents an opportunity for MNOs to generate incremental revenue by filling the underutilized capacity of wireless networks with FWA services. Operators should prioritize spectrum usage to maximize its value and use new technologies such as small cells and site densification to handle demand exceeding supply.

5G FWA adheres to industry standards, enabling consistency in equipment requirements, lowering costs, and simplifying installation for operators and users. Standard and interoperable equipment and devices can be developed and commercialized at scale, enhancing the equipment vendor ecosystem.

Operators can use new RF technologies such as small cells, beamforming, and massive MIMO to improve spectral efficiency and traffic density of 5G networks, particularly in areas with network capacity constraints.
