New Windsor, NY - May 17, 2018 - Wireless 20/20, LLC (www.wireless2020.com), a leading broadband wireless research and consulting firm, announced today the release of their new WiROI™ 5G Networks Business Case Analysis Tool. The WiROI™ 5G Networks Business Case Analysis Tool was developed to analyze the technical and financial aspects of deploying 5G networks using multiple low, mid and high spectrum bands to deliver Gigabit broadband to fixed wireless venues, such as single-family homes, multi-dwelling units (MDUs) and enterprise buildings.
The WiROI™ 5G Networks Business Case Analysis Tool can also be used to analyze 5G network technology options from multiple vendors, as well as simulate various methods for monetizing the investment in 5G networks. The result is a comprehensive Return on Investment (ROI) analysis for both mobile and fixed broadband service providers. Wireless 20/20 has leveraged their experience in over 150 engagements working with both mobile and fixed wireless operators worldwide to create this newest version of their award-winning WiROI™ Business Case Analysis Tool.
"The questions we often get asked are which technologies and spectrum bands are best suited to deploy 5G networks and how do operators deploy 5G fixed wireless networks cost-effectively to serve both single-family homes and MDUs," said Haig Sarkissian, Principal Consultant at Wireless 20/20. "Our new WiROI™ 5G Tool allows both vendors and service providers to address these questions in an interactive manner with a common set of modeling inputs to compare the merits of the various technologies and spectrum band options."
Verizon and AT&T have announced plans to begin offering commercial 5G fixed wireless services in the second half of 2018, to deliver Gigabit broadband to single family homes and MDU buildings. The WiROI™ 5G Tool provides unique insight on the CapEx, OpEx and revenue associated with these types of deployments and the trade-offs between 5G deployments using various licensed and unlicensed spectrum bands. The new tool also allows operators to model the use of fiber and microwave backhaul for 5G small cells, new multi-point mmWave equipment for MDUs and the most innovative antenna designs, including multi-sector antennas, MU-MIMO and advanced beam-forming technologies. The new WiROI™ 5G Tool provides a hands-on method for conducting business case simulations.
"As the wireless industry transitions to 5G, new opportunities are emerging for a wide range of operators to deploy new kinds of technologies and networks," added Randall Schwartz, Principal Consultant at Wireless 20/20. "Operators need a solid business case analysis to tailor winning business models for next generation 5G use cases."
Wireless 20/20 demonstrated the new WiROI™ 5G Networks Business Case Tool during the 5G North America Conference, co-located with Light Reading's Big Communications Event (BCE) and the 5G Americas 5G New Horizons Wireless Symposium in Austin, Texas, May 14-17.
