Renting a place is not only about having a roof over our heads. Not any more. Today’s tenants look for top-notch amenities, patios and pools, around-the-clock security, roof terraces, gymnasiums. And property developers are fighting the war to put out the properties with anything that adds an extra oomph in the property’s appeal. But why is it that property managers, owners and builders are still not seeing the massive opportunity of In-Building-Wireless (IBW)?
So it’s no news that we live and breathe in digital age – and our accessibility of almost everything at our fingertips makes the world super close-knit and smaller than it is. We work in an age where we have access to almost absolutely anything on demand. We are no longer the prisoners of our own work desks, tied by the cord connected to a wall-outlet. The mobility we get with laptops, smartphones, tablets and wearables gives us freedom.
It’s no news that the evolution in the mobile industry has been dramatic by every measure, and the prospects of growth for 2017 is not looking any different. Consumer attitudes around mobile devices are unique and vital, and the mobile smartphone has become a singular most indispensable item across all geographies and demographics. It has become an ‘enabler’ of all things connectivity – letting the doors wide open for innovative and groundbreaking technologies – some we’ve seen and many are […]
Where is the ‘path to 5G’ leading to? What can we expect of 5G and what can it really accomplish? To what stretch will it be better than LTE? 12 billion plus devices are already connected to the Internet of Things. And the fifth generation of wireless technology is expected to connect many more billions. By 2020, that number could surge to 30 billion, says Simona Jankowski of Goldman Sachs Research. The future of IoT is being led by the […]
It is obligatory for many venues – large and small – to ready all infrastructure and systems needed for the first responders to communicate seamlessly over their radio equipments. Building owners and managers want to ensure that they can communicate clearly within their jurisdictions. Most often, this requires the deployment of DAS (Distributed Antenna System) that expand the outdoor public safety coverage to the interiors of the buildings in a way that no internal section of the building or facility […]
In the world where network connectivity is the life blood of today’s workforce, it is a shame to install and manage a poorly designed wireless WLAN. Not only is it a frustrating and time-consuming ordeal, but it also leads to loss of productivity, irritated employees, dampened and weakened work processes, and an overall sense of displeasure. Doesn’t sound very gratifying? Well, the good news is that it doesn’t have to be that way.
We’ve all been witnessing the way today’s enterprise workforce has been changing and evolving beyond imaginations over the recent years. We’ve all been a part of it! Part of the crowd that’s getting more crowded by the day. Number of connected devices are through the roof, and the type of applications that run on these devices are getting increasingly bandwidth-hungry.
It goes without saying that gone are the days for Wired connections. Sure, they’re necessary infrastructure to even get the services delivered in the first place – but as far as consumers are concerned, nobody likes being held hostage in one place by the wires and cables.
Let’s kick off with some quick stats, shall we? So today, There are 4 Billion connected people. There are 50 Billion connected devices. Indoors mobile traffic contributes 80% of the total mobile traffic today. The number of connected ‘things’ is expected to reach 50.1 Billion by 2020. In-Building Wireless market is expected to be worth $16.71 Billion by 2020. IBW equipment market itself is expected to be worth $10 Billion by 2025. Out of this, IBW 5G equipment alone […]
IBW solutions are like Cinderella’s shoes. There’s no one-size-fits-all solution for every aspiring IBW’ers. Why? Because buildings are different. The construction materials and the way they’re built are different. Their in-building dynamics are also different. The incumbent technologies the buildings have (or not) are also unique. (What else?)
The wireless operators have been battling and crawling with the in-building wireless coverage since the primordial days of mobile phones. From the steel-framed buildings, concrete facilities and warehouses, to thick-glassed towers, all modern day construction materials passionately interfere with the wireless signals and block any or all traces of wireless signals. It not only creates a heap of barrier for the signals to pierce into the premises, but also creates problem for the businesses and enterprises whose people heavily rely […]
