Re: Fixed wireless of various flavors...
It doesn't even have to be microwave antennas.. my neighborhood is alreay using some other unlicensed spectrum to beam gigabit broadband to rooftops that aren't quite ready for fiber to the home. The reliability is probably a bit worse than the "best efforts" of the big incumbent players, but the price of service is very competitive.

Re: Fixed wireless of various flavors...
With what appears to be service about and one and one-half mile radiuus around the microwave antenna it might well be an efficient way to serve communities that can't afford fiber and as noted will be " 90% cheaper than laying physical fiber to a small remote village.

> "In the UK, Virgin Media is trialing a microwave backhaul..."

Fixed wireless is going to be (and already is) the future of broadband -- and then LEO satellite broadband might leapfrog fiber.

Re: ZTE
The UK (and others) should have the same security concerns about Huawei, but the UK hasn't banned foreign networking manufacturers. Maybe the UK can't handle Brexit and chew gum at the same time, but it still doesn't explain the trumpian threats to Huawei's existence.

Re: ZTE
@michelle The U.S. does business with all kinds of global technology companies, yet it has singled out Huawei as a company that will use back doors to get our sensitive information. How absurd.

The MDU market continues to face fierce competition among service providers due to tech-savvy residents (i.e., millennials), demand from building owners and management companies, plus the favorable economics of bulk contracts. However, no MDUs are the same, so service providers must use multiple technologies and inconsistent deployment models, increasing operational complexity and rollout costs.

The MDU market itself is evolving as residents adopt smart-home technologies, generating rising demand for smart apartments with built-in connected thermostats, keyless entryways and doors, and video doorbells. This evolution presents both new challenges and opportunities. In other words, service providers must consider innovative service-delivery strategies to compete and win.

In this Broadband World News and ADTRAN webinar, Kurt Raaflaub, Head of Strategic Solutions Marketing, will highlight emerging MDU broadband Internet trends and challenges. In addition, Kurt will outline the next-generation service creation and delivery platform, built on open standards, that allows service providers to connect millions of underserved MDUs, enables creation of user-driven services, and reduces operational complexity and costs.

Plus, special guest, Alice Lawson, Broadband and Cable Program Manager for the City of Seattle, will discuss Seattle’s B4B-Build For Broadband initiative that addresses best practices in planning for MDU telecommunication infrastructure.
