Fixed wireless access (FWA) is not a new story but one that has quite rapidly become one of the most talked about use cases for 5G. There is significant momentum today for FWA, with commercial launches by major communication service providers (CSPs), such as Verizon and Optus, and several product and solutions being offered by the vendors community."FWA deployments are already live across the world, using 4G LTE. although usually small in scale, many operators have already deployed versions of FWA, including in emerging markets," says Shiv Putcha, adjunct research director, IDC India. "Now, with major operators, such as Verizon in the United States and Optus in Australia, deploying commercial 5G FWA in their respective markets, momentum is building for the technology, with operator launches and trials underway all around the world," he adds.
