Why WiGig for Fixed Wireless Access?


60 GHz WiGig (802.11ad and 802.11ay) technologies are increasingly being leveraged in the Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) space as a much more cost-effective alternative to fiber deployments. These solutions can provide multi-gigabit wireless Internet access that is easier and less costly to deploy, can scale flexibly and incorporate additional endpoints over time, and can leverage uncongested 60 GHz spectrum, take advantage of existing street or rural infrastructure, and expand high-speed Internet access to areas where fiber infrastructure is not possible or simply too costly or complex to implement. Recent trials and partnerships are increasing, demonstrating the viability and value of 60 GHz band in order to provide much faster broadband across a variety of environments.

New Funding and Partnerships Highlight Growing Opportunity


As WiGig struggles to gain traction in the consumer environment, many 60 GHz vendors have shifted their focus to the fixed wireless market. For some time, WiGig vend…
