In-building wireless market to double
With the demand for data growing and expectations for connectivity amongst consumers to be available in hotels, stadiums, airports, convention and conference centers, hospitals, colleges/campuses, corporate buildings, shops and shopping malls, in-building coverage is becoming a necessity for enterprises and businesses.
Joe Madden, Principal Analyst at Mobile Experts commented, "Recent product announcements show a clear migration toward inexpensive twisted pair cabling and simpler, lower cost signal sources for in-building deployment. We have laid out a future roadmap for these new architectures to take the next step, resulting in a low-cost, multi-operator system that will be easy for an enterprise to buy."
Mr. Madden continued, "In last year’s report we compared the cost of various alternatives and set some price targets to open up each vertical market. Many of these price targets are proving to be correct, as we now see enterprise investment growing for in-building solutions. This year, we’ve taken a step farther in our investigation of enterprise spending, and we’ve added analysis on the impact of Wi-Fi, License-Assisted Access, Hotspot 2.0, and other unlicensed options."
