Wireless, Fixed

Introduction

Fixed wireless is a technology by which wireless devices or systems operating in a fixed location, such as an office or home, connect to the Internet. Unlike mobile or portable wireless devices, such as PDAs, fixed wireless devices are typically powered by utility mains rather than by batteries. Subscribers to a fixed wireless service can enjoy the following benefits: broad bandwidth (no wires or cables to limit the number or frequency of signals), no need to alter the infrastructure when adding or moving subscribers, subscribers in remote areas can access existing networks without needing to string new cables or optical fibers, and the cost per subscriber decreases as the number of subscribers increases.
