Gigabit++ With Wired & Wireless Convergence

Date : 2019-04-09

With the proliferation of 4G LTE across the globe and evolution of WiFi standards to support Gigabit connectivity in building (home, enterprise, high-density venues, etc.), there has been a steady rise in data consumption at the network’s edge. This demand for high bandwidth on the radio access has led to growing demand for high-bandwidth backhaul connectivity. The natural choice for backhaul connectivity has been fiber, and networks across the world are extending fiber reach to as close to the network edge as possible. But can a converged infrastructure or fiber++ bring better value to the end consumer and make case for a better economics? In the recent past, 5G and particularly the 5GNR standard, has generated renewed interest in fixed wireless access, with the focus primarily on offering broadband connectivity to homes.
However, fixed wireless can offer more than just wireless broadband connectivity to homes. We see a world of technological convergence where several FWA technologies – 802.11 standard based, LTE, 5GNR, FSO, LiFi and SATCOM will co-exist, collaborate, cohabitate alongside. Join us for this exciting webinar to learn more about:
How FWA can be a profitable growth opportunity to enable the “Networks of Tomorrow”
Convergence of wired and wireless infrastructure to bring Gigabit connectivity to the edge
Various use cases that can leverage fixed wireless for ‘last mile’ connectivity, its pros and cons, cost considerations, etc.
