Fixed wireless access (FWA) is a very important, yet not very well-known, slice of the wireless landscape. It has significant growth potential for the companies that can find a solution to this problem. There are many companies in the wireless space who are focused on FWA as a growth opportunity. This includes large and small companies like Qualcomm, AT&T, Samsung, Nokia, Ericsson, Mimosa Networks, Cohere Technologies and many others.
FWA is a technology that helps wireless networks cope with the growing problem of limited wireless spectrum. Think of wireless spectrum like a fiber line carrying voice and data traffic on the nation’s networks. As usage increased, spectrum does not. So, we must develop ways to increase capacity on the spectrum we have.
