Connecting the Unconnected: Closing the Fixed Wireless Access Gap

Fixed Wireless Access Market to generate $20B equipment revenue by 2023

CAMPBELL, Calif., Feb. 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- In their latest report, Mobile Experts outlines the growing market for fixed wireless access equipment including licensed and unlicensed options from sub-1 GHz to millimeter wave bands, including 802.11-based and 3GPP-based LTE and 5G radios.

Fixed Wireless Access Market to generate $20B equipment revenue by 2023

According to the report, the fixed wireless access market will generate nearly $20 billion in cumulative equipment revenue from base station access point (AP) and customer premise equipment (CPE) sales over the next six years. Annual sales of "dedicated" fixed wireless AP equipment is forecasted to grow from $430 million in 2017 to $1.2 billion in 2023. Further, the company explains in the new report, CPE sales revenue is expected to remain around $2.4 billion annually.

"There is a fierce demand for broadband, strengthened by the cord-cutting trend," commented Principal Analyst Kyung Mun. "This is driving serious growth of fixed wireless AP shipments. Government programs like the CAF II auction in the U.S. are incentivizing operators to build broadband infrastructure in underserved areas with the support of government subsidy.   There's also a strong shift from 802.11-based formats toward 3GPP-based formats such as LTE and 5G NR."

Mobile Experts reveals in the report that the overall fixed wireless AP equipment market is forecasted to grow at 8% CAGR through 2023, but the "dedicated" LTE fixed segment is expected to grow much more quickly. Large mobile operators, especially those holding large chunks of millimeter wave spectrum, are expected to put their assets to work with 5G fixed service launch in urban settings while they await for the 5G mobile ecosystem to scale up.  With a high penetration of competitive fiber and cable footprints in developed markets, 5G fixed market penetration will be opportunistic. Mobile Experts projects a much larger adoption of LTE fixed solutions.

"For smaller players, the 802.11-based proprietary solutions will remain a good alternative. They will remain a workhorse for fixed wireless access in rural markets, and will maintain the largest share at the end of the forecast period," commented Principal Analyst Kyung Mun.

It is considered by Gartner as one of the ‘Key platform-enabling technologies to track.’ While there is a lot of ‘hype vs reality’ discussions going on, there is no arguing that blockchain is b...

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

For example, using spot instances and co...
The cloud era has reached the stage where it is no longer a question of whether a company should migrate, but when. Enterprises have embraced the outsourcing of where their various applications are stored and who manages them, saving significant investment along the way. Plus, the cloud has become a defining competitive edge. Companies that fail to successfully adapt risk failure. The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating...
The use of containers by developers -- and now increasingly IT operators -- has grown from infatuation to deep and abiding love.
