5G Fixed Wireless Access

Fixed wireless access (FWA) is one of the early planned use cases for 5G deployment, offering a new wireless alternative for providing broadband to homes and businesses. Because this requires very high bandwidth, many solutions for FWA consider use of new millimeter-wave bands. This poses challenges for coverage, including increased path loss, weaker penetration through walls into the interiors of structures, and greater effects from shadowing of structures and trees on the outdoor propagation.
