• In late 2020, GSA established the 4G-5G FWA Forum in recognition of the important role 3GPP-based 4G-5G FWA technologies play to offer a fast, economically attractive and future proof alternative to deploying broadband services, in particular for rural and less densely populated areas.

    In 2023 the Forum also launched the FWA Ecosystem Directory with a list of devices for FWA service.


    Forum Partners and Members can upload their product to the directory to promote their FWA devices.

  • As of November 2022, there were 53 GSA 4G-5G FWA Forum members covering majority of the infrastructure, chipset, module and CPE value chain for FWA.

    One of the main deliverables has been a 4G-5G FWA Ecosystem Catalogue, which is now in its 7th iteration and promotes a wide range of FWA devices, chipsets and modules. The Forum has also delivered a CPE Survey report to help the industry better estimate the real market size of the 4G-5G FWA market.

    In addition, plenary events featuring a wealth of speakers from mobile operators, regulatory bodies and the equipment supply industry all discussing and debating a wide range of key FWA industry topics are organised. Further activities to promote 4G-5G FWA adoption for the benefit of citizens and businesses worldwide are expected over the course of 2022-23. Stay tuned.

    Participation to the GSA 4G-5G FWA Forum is open to all companies involved in the 4G-5G FWA Ecosystem.

  • GSA 4G-5G FWA Forum Device Ecosystem Catalogue – February 2023

    The GSA 4G-5G FWA Forum Device Ecosystem Catalogue contains an overview of the growing number of companies involved in the 3GPP Fixed Wireless Access Device Ecosystem.
    Companies are grouped according to where they sit in the ecosystem (ie. Chipset Suppliers, Module Suppliers or Device Suppliers)

    For each company a single page overview of who they are and where further information can be obtained is provided.
    A simple overview of all Fixed Wireless Related products being marketed at the time of issue by each company is also included.

  • GSA 4G -5G FWA Forum’s Contribution to EC State Aid Guidelines Consultation

    Representing the 4G-5G FWA industry voice, the GSA FWA Forum naturally participated to the public consultation about European Commission´s (EC) proposed update to the EU´s Broadband State Aid Guidelines (BBGL).

    The Forum supports the inclusion of FWA as an additional technology to close the digital divide in Europe. FWA offers a fast, economically attractive and future proof alternative to deploying broadband services, in particular for rural and less densely populated areas where there is a connectivity gap and fiber deployment costs are high.

    The full contribution of the 4G-5G FWA Forum can be consulted on our website.

    FWA CPE Market Survey

    FWA Survey July 2022 – will be updated in 2023


    The purpose of the GSA 4G–5G FWA Forum is to educate the industry about the fixed wireless access (FWA) market. Currently there are no agreed market definitions, there is a lack of market information, and no consensus about the volume of FWA device shipments and FWA installed base globally.

    GSA’s annual survey of the market for FWA customer-premises equipment (CPE) aims to address this issue. It was first conducted in 2021 and this report presents the findings of the latest survey, where data was collected from April to June 2022.

    The survey results present the aggregate answers of 26 CPE vendors that are members of the GSA 4G–5G FWA Forum about a range of topics including shipments, market trends, form factors and device features, current and future.

    We estimate that these members form a significant representation of the 3GPP-based 4G and 5G FWA device market. The vendors that participated in the 2022 survey were: Asiatelco Technologies Co, Askey, BEC Technologies, Casa Systems, Changhong, Da Ta Technologies, Esound Technology, Gongjin Mobile Communication/T&W, GosuncnWelink Technology, Green Packet, Huawei, Intelbras, Jaton Technology, Jointelli, MeiG Smart Technology, MiWire, Mobot Mobile, Nokia, Notion InfoTech, Oppo, SMAWave, TCL, TigerCel, Tozed Kangwei, Wavetel and WNC.

    The survey is intended to be repeated annually to create a baseline of data about the global 4G and 5G FWA market. This report presents a summary of selected survey findings.
