Fixed wireless access (FWA) is a way of providing wireless broadband data communication or connectivity through two fixed locations connected through fixed wireless access devices and equipment.
The FWA is specifically the cheapest option for network communications in densely populated areas. According to the latest TMR report, 5G FWA market is about to experience a tremendous growth spike during 2025.
Being an established means of providing internet access, the market has a very high-density data transmission qualities using wireless mobile network technology. This technology includes such as beam-forming and a high-frequency mmWave (millimeter wave) spectrum, to provide a considerable performance boost to wireless broadband services.
The advantage and the drivers of the rise in the 5G FWA are that it enables the establishment of quick and cheap broadband service, even in areas that don’t have ready access to fixed-line home broadband. 5G FWA doesn’t require any engineering works at the customer end – just the provision of so-called Customer Premise Equipment (CPEs), which can be readily self-installed by the subscriber.
5G Fixed Wireless Access will be able to deliver a level of service that’s similar to a fiber-based broadband network, and should even be able to provide data speeds that are well ahead of current broadband standards.
As a result, 5G FWA is expected to have a huge impact even in developed markets like the US, where there is a sizeable disparity in broadband accessibility between the major cities and sparsely populated rural areas.
The 5G FWA is classified based on Offering: Hardware, Access Unit, Services; based on Demography: Urban, Semi-Urban, Rural; based on application: Residential, Commercial, Industrial, Government; based on geography: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and Rest of World.
The US is going to remain the largest market in the world as the technology is new and there is a large taker of this technology immediately. US is also is expected to remain the fastest-growing market as there are ready takers for this technology since the US remains the hub of IT and ITES.
Major players in the 5G fixed wireless access market include Qualcomm Technologies (US), Nokia Corporation (Finland), Samsung Electronics (South Korea), Huawei (China), Ericsson (Sweden), Mimosa Networks, Inc. (US), Cohere Technologies, Inc. (the US), Siklu Communication, Ltd. (Israel), AT&T Inc. (US), Verizon Communications Inc. (US), Cisco (US), Arqiva (Hampshire), Cellular South, Inc. (C Spire) (US), Orange S.A. (France), United States Cellular Corporation (US), TELUS Corporation (Canada), Telefónica (Spain), Mobile Telephone Networks (MTN) (South Africa), Swisscom (Switzerland), and Hrvatski Telekom (Croatia).
