As cable operators are entering into a challenging phase of monetizing their infrastructure, different opportunities and challenges are arising. One such challenge is fixed wireless. Here are some of the problems they are facing now –

  • When do they need to deploy fixed wireless?
  • What architectural adjustments do they need to make to make this a successful long-term strategy?
  • How to monetize tis infrastructure? – Partnerships, MVNO, end to end ownership etc.

We are at the forefront of this transformation by assisting some of the strategic decisions and running the initiatives while solving the day to day problems. In this magazine, Rajesh will introduce details behind millimeter wave technologies. In the future editions we will provide more insights into different strategic aspects of fixed wireless technologies. Also refer to our Analytics Lead’s (Luc Absillis) article on the Broadband Library website http://broadbandlibrary.com on “Access Transformation – Technology Basics”, which compares different access technologies including fixed wireless.

Feel free to contact us if you want to discuss any of the areas highlighted or any areas that you feel we can add value.
