Fixed wireless to bridge fiber gap
Fixed wireless technology could be the Holy Grail, according to a new report. The high-speed service offering is well suited to bridge the gap between the fiber backbone and end users, but there are limitations. The problem facing this growing industry is that roof space is at a premium, and there are a limited number of buildings that can be used as wireless access points. If providers can quickly identify their customers and move to supply service through "quality transmission channels," they will be able to enjoy a chunk of the $28.5 billion in revenue this industry is expected to generate by 2007, according to Frost & Sullivan's new North American Broadband Wireless Access Services study.
