Broadband Wireless Access ("BWA") is a descriptive term for the wireless delivery of broadband traffic. BWA can encompass fixed, nomadic and mobile applications. Most BWA systems give broadband access to an IP based network, such as internet access. BWA focuses mainly but not exclusively to end users. If end users are connected to a network, it is also referred to as a solution for the “first mile” or the “last mile”.
BWA systems may include backhauling services for the same or a second operator.
