Report Summary

Modern IP and internet networks today are generally built on carrier-class Ethernet infrastructure. An Ethernet network typically uses one of three physical media: copper, fiber, or fixed wireless. Copper is generally acknowledged to allow for high-speed, highquality, short-distance Ethernet transmission (i.e. in-suite or in-building), but requires short copper loops. Fiber allows for long-distance Ethernet transmission but can be incredibly expensive to build out. Fixed wireless access (FWA), when engineered correctly, is essentially equal to fiber transmission in terms of Ethernet performance, but it comes with lower build costs. Because of this mix of performance and cost, interest in FWA for Ethernet is growing among both enterprises and service providers.
