Re: Pane in the glass
This already has a big impact on 4G. Buildings codes, and the desire to be energy efficent, mean new buildings more or less have to use it. You see this all over the place lately.

Seems like that goes into overdrive with mmWave!

The Glass Ceiling has existed for some time
LEED Certified Multifamily residential buildings have been having this issue for some time.  Any frequencies above 1 Ghz have difficulty penetrating these buildings, whcih is why in building WiFi Calling and data services have become so prevalent.

Re: The Glass Ceiling has existed for some time
This sounds like it could step up the problem. Interesting that none of the carriers happily talking about fixed 5G etc have really mentioned it, to my knowledge, at least in a public setting.

Well, on the business side of existing fixed wireless most of the antennas are roof mounted so it is not a big deal...maybe that is what the plan is for 5G.

Re: The Glass Ceiling has existed for some time
The initial concept was a user- mounted antenna, to keep costs down.

I can see that for residential applications, but it does not seem likely to me that the kind of performance that fixed wireless gets out there today in the WISP market is close to acheivable that way.

Re: The Glass Ceiling has existed for some time
The whole point was to reduce labor/ installation vs. Cable for residential, yes.
