Fixed-Wireless-Access Survey 2023
The purpose of the GSA 4G–5G FWA Forum is to educate the industry about the fixed wireless access (FWA) market. There are currently 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 FWA CPE market survey aims to address these issues. It was first conducted in 2021 and this report presents the findings of the 2023 survey, where data was collected from May to June 2023. A total of 27 vendors of customer-premises equipment (CPE) from the GSA 4G–5G FWA Forum answered the survey.
GSA defines FWA as indoor or outdoor CPE that is AC-powered and designed for continuous 24-hour broadband connectivity on a fixed location. Battery-operated devices designed specifically for nomadic or sporadic use of broadband connectivity, such as MiFi or pocket routers or hot spots, are excluded from this definition. Industrial-grade and large enterprise-grade CPE and routers are also excluded.
The results present the aggregate answers of those 27 CPE vendors. We estimate that this is a significant representation of the market for 3GPP-based 4G and 5G FWA devices. Please note that the sample sizes and participant companies differ slightly from year to year, so caution is advised when drawing comparisons.
Participants in the survey included: Asiatelco Technologies, Askey, BEC Technologies, Casa Systems, Compal, Da Ta Technologies, Elsys, Gongjin Mobile Communication/T&W, GosuncnWelink Technology, Green Packet, Huawei, Inseego, Intelbras, Jaton Technology, MeiG Smart Technology, MiWire, Nokia, Notion InfoTech, Oppo, Shenzhen Jointelli, Smawave Technology, Tozed Kangwei, Vantiva, Wavetel, WNC, YaoJin Technology and Zyxel.
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.
