Fixed Wireless Access has been gaining momentum as one of the key use cases being explored as part of service providers' plans for 5G. 5G WWC as defined in 3GPP Release 16 opens the door to brand-new user experiences, including service equivalency and wireline-wireless convergence. This helps service providers to leverage WWC to provide differentiated services, including the ability to offer enhanced SLAs along with network simplification and optimization.

Join our session to learn how Juniper can help you grow into newer markets enabled by FWA and offer converged services for enterprises and other key verticals.

Key topics include:

  • FWA market overview
  • Opportunities and use cases for FWA
  • New mobile and converged services for enterprises and key verticals
  • Advantages of multi-access and intelligent traffic steering
  • Juniper Multi-Access User Plane
