Maximise Benefits From Disruptive mmWave Technology for FWA Services
Date / Time: Thursday, October 7, 2021, 11:00 a.m New York / 4:00 p.m London

In the era of the COVID-19 pandemic, the demand for high quality broadband access service is increasing at a rate higher than was ever anticipated. The network infrastructure has been enhanced to cope and fiber is used extensively. However, fiber cannot reach everywhere. Moreover, the copper network cannot deliver the high capacity services required today and gradually it is being decommissioned.

Recent technology advances set FWA as a very attractive solution that bypasses the economic barriers associated with fiber deployment, especially in rural, semi-rural and underserved areas. Fiber-like services offering gigabit speeds can be delivered by exploiting the ample spectrum resources of the mmWave band with very high spectrum efficiency in conjunction with MU-MIMO and beamforming techniques.

Furthermore, FWA Aggregation hubs can be backhauled employing E-band solutions, particularly at locations where fiber is not available or expected to be deployed. In this way, an ecosystem of wireless technologies can be developed to efficiently address the demand for ultra-broadband services in underserved areas.

In this webinar we focus on purpose-built mmWave FWA solutions at the 24GHz, 26GHz, 28GHz and 31GHz bands and compare the benefits against 5G FWA.

Key topics include :

  • Long-range FWA covering wide areas with ultra-broadband service from a single basestation
  • Ease and simplicity of large-scale FWA deployments with quick return of investment
  • Coexistence of FWA technologies and 5G in mmWave bands
  • Efficient X-Haul services with advanced E-band technology
