The emergence of new standards will result in a dynamic rate of growth for Fixed Wireless Broadband (FWB), reports In-Stat/MDR. Traditionally, a lack of standards has hampered the deployment of FWB systems, as the proprietary nature of FWB technology kept the cost high, and limited interoperability between different vendors. However, the emergence of FWB-specific standards like 802.16 and 802.20 will help to grow FWB in its three main applications - last mile connectivity, network backhaul, and private networking. As a result, the market will grow from $558.7 million in 2003 to over $1.2 billion by the end of 2007.
