Mobile data traffic has grown 18-fold over the past 5 years, and shows no signs of slowing down. In the effort to provide adequate service, the ecosystem (in all its components) continues to innovate with new technologies, and to densify wireless networks both indoors and outdoors.
Installing in-building cellular coverage solutions requires a broad range of skillsets, from RF engineering to cable installation. While the installation costs for a very large deployment is typically higher than the hardware itself, advances in technology have led to newer, simpler solutions that dramatically reduce planning and deployment requirements for mid-sized venues. In addition to reducing overall costs and turnaround times for implementation, new capabilities are alleviating the ongoing industry challenge of skills shortages to deploy systems that resolve poor voice quality, dropped calls and cellular service black holes experienced in the enterprise space.
