Executive summary

Enterprise networking staff are tasked with providing fast, secure and reliable network access to applications in a cost-effective manner. Balancing this objective requires an understanding of the challenges involved, as well as the strategies to mitigate them.

The fixed wireless access (FWA) market is heating up, as businesses seek faster speeds and quicker deployment of access services to both public and private networks. The global FWA market is projected to register a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 73% between 2021 and 2026, 1 as carriers make significant investments 2 to overcome the restrictions of legacy broadband networks, including speed, reliability and availability of wireline access.

In this white paper, we explore the challenges associated with wired broadband and discuss how FWA may help to mitigate these challenges.

Broadband access services

Most broadband services are also considered variable speed, meaning various environmental conditions may impact their speed at any time.

The median performances for wired broadband DSL, cable and fiber referenced in the chart reflect the aggregate of the major U.S. carriers, as measured by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).5 The average performance for mobile wireless referenced reflects the aggregate of major U.S. carriers as measured by Speedtest.6 Verizon LTE Business Internet performance is based upon the average of lab tests at a single location. Verizon 5G Business Internet speeds are based upon customer trials at nine locations. Note that these performances offer only a sample reference, and factors such as network load, distance to data centers and environmental factors may impact performance on any connection at any time.
