Fixed Wireless Terminals (FWT) and Cellular Routers

The term "Fixed Wireless Terminals (FWT)" is used to describe a class of external and embedded modems, gateways, and routers that utilize a cellular connection. These devices are used in a wide variety of applications, including: Wireless Local Loop (i.e. enabling a fixed voice connection over a cellular network), 3G router (i.e. sharing a cellular broadband connection via Wi-Fi to multiple notebook PCs), network router back-up cards, branch office routers, PBX routers, industrial modems and terminals, and mobile routers. Cellular routers offer connectivity for home, small office or mobile broadband service. Devices in this segment provide a cellular or mobile broadband modem as the primary WAN connection. The LAN connections for these routers may include wired Ethernet and/or wireless Wi-Fi.This report examines the market opportunity and technical trends relevant to these devices, provides a granular, segmented five-year forecast for shipment and revenue, and profiles the key market players having an impact on this market.
