With 10 million units shipped, the 5G FWA market is heating up exceptionally well from dtertz's blog

The demand for high-speed and stable communications has soared, but the high cost and long lead time of fiber optics,fm350-gl and even the reliance on wireless in many areas, make the last mile of network coverage more urgent. 5G FWA is moving out of the country into rich industrial applications such as electric power, transportation, energy, etc., with the advantages of low cost, easy deployment, good communication stability, and fast speed.

The slogan "4G changes life, 5G changes society" has been shouted for many years. "Changing society"fwa is more reflected in the fact that 5G can support the digital transformation of thousands of industries. With the improvement of the global 5G infrastructure construction, consumer hardware, industrial Internet, remote medical care, city management, car networking and other scenarios have been upgraded by leaps and bounds with the support of 5G. However, 5G FWA (Fixed Wireless Access) is considered to be the area with the highest demand certainty and growth apart from cellular phones, as the price of 5G handsets at the consumer end continues to drop and become commercially available on a large scale.

FWA through electromagnetic waves instead of cable as a signal data transmission medium, thus effectively avoiding the traditional Chinese fiber optic access required to dig trench, wiring and other cumbersome work process, coupled with 5G in the bandwidth, rate and stability analysis of the natural resource advantages, can be simultaneously managed through the CPE for the user to provide a comparable to the experience of the Gigabit fiber optic network services.

5G FWA could be the killer application

High-frequency video calls and ultra-high-definition video streaming applications place more stringent requirements on transmission rates, stability and latency.

That's why 5G FWA has been able to achieve rapid growth in just a few years. The market for high-speed, stable communications has surged, but the high cost and long completion time of laying fiber optics, even as it relies on wireless communications in many areas, makes the last mile of network coverage even more urgent. It's worth noting that while the country is far ahead in terms of fiber coverage, low-investment 5G FWA solutions still offer significant advantages for factories, stores, chains and small and micro businesses.

First, FWA can provide fast and flexible broadband and wi-fi coverage in sparsely populated areas. In some areas with fewer users, operators have lower input-output, i.e., there is an imbalance between base station construction, fiber rollout and user consumption, so 5G FWA not only saves network construction costs for operators, but also ensures the quality of user access to the Internet.

Secondly, FWA can be carried out to solve the problem of difficult construction of communication engineering. Unlike the domestic infrastructure construction model, in overseas, operators laying optical fiber need to go through a long process of planning, application and so on before they can realize the real construction project construction social stage.

Third, FWA can provide reasonably priced and convenient broadband access to small businesses, stores and temporary locations. In this case, the application is relatively simple, the traffic is not high, the locations are fewer, no enterprise CPE is needed, and the cost-effectiveness of domestic cellular communication is high, therefore, the application of 5G FWA in China is mainly focused on the industry. For example, temporary Nucleic Acid Checkpoints at some airports are currently using the 5G FWA protocol.

Fourth, FWA is also an important tool for cellular operators to capture the home broadband market. Unlike the three-pronged situation in the domestic market - where the three major operators all have fixed-line and cellular licenses - overseas operators are relatively independent and dominated by a single license, so 5G FWA will be a fast way for cellular operators to seize the home broadband market share.

It can be said that 5G FWA has gradually entered the fast lane of development under the joint promotion of supply and demand. As the underlying technology and terminal products become more and more mature, it is also expanding new applications. On the contrary, scenario innovation will undoubtedly bring more demanding requirements for terminal equipment. Work

The market cake is expanding, can cellular + WiFi break through?

FWA's broad social development as well as space is obvious to all, overseas Chinese market, especially for fixed broadband penetration rate is low in the region have been 5G FWA as a key management business data for reasonable layout to promote. At the same time, there are more and more research enterprises began to force 5G CPE terminal, in the face of the increasingly fierce competition in the market economy, module, chip technology platform differentiation advantage may become the terminal to realize the enterprise breakthrough weapon.

Undoubtedly, the further development of 5G is promoting FWA from a "backup" into a "reserve", and can compete with the fixed line connection market, especially in the module, the technical capacity of the chip platform continues to improve, coupled with the cost of terminal products, 5G FWA will also go out of the market, and will be able to compete with the fixed line connection. 5G FWA will also go out of the door to rich industrial applications such as power, transportation and energy.
