ip.access has recently commissioned Wireless 20/20 to run an in-depth analysis on today’s in-building solutions and the market opportunity they address.
The whitepaper, presents compelling evidence of how neutral host, multi-operator small cells can deliver economically viable in-building solutions, unlocking new commercial opportunities in the ‘Middleprise’, which represents a large segment of the in-building wireless market. For the vast majority of these businesses the high cost of DAS systems is prohibitive and the needs of this market segment are not well served by most mobile operators with traditional single operator small cell solutions.
Middleprise venues include small and medium-sized commercial buildings, hotels, hospitals, colleges and even small retail stores, which could all benefit from improved indoor mobile coverage and capacity. Interestingly enough, research by CommScope has revealed that only two per cent of commercial buildings, in the USA, have a dedicated in-building solution, making the ‘middleprise’ market segment seriously underserved.

Economically viable in-building solutions have become critical as mobile carriers expand and densify their 4G LTE networks and begin planning 5G access solutions to meet the ever-increasing capacity requirements.
Several current trends in the mobile market are defining a new “universal service” standard for cellular coverage, capacity and quality of service for every mobile user regardless of mobile carrier / mobile network operator [MNO] affiliation.
