IBW eBook launched by CommScope
Bringing cellular signals indoors with in-building wireless (IBW) systems can be challenging, but almost 75% of building professionals surveyed by CommScope cited IBW connectivity as ‘important’ or ‘very important’ to them.
The eBook, which is available for free download, offers a wealth of knowledge to help IBW newcomers better understand and solve the common challenges in selecting, funding and deploying such systems.
“If you are new to IBW and need a good primer on the technologies involved, In-building Wireless Best Practices is a great place to start your research,” said Matt Melester, senior vice president at CommScope.
IBW solutions supplement the macro wireless network by deploying indoor coverage and capacity within a given area to provide seamless connectivity for people inside. Today’s IBW solutions include a number of different technologies, each with their own applications, advantages and challenges. The 10 chapters in In-building Wireless Best Practices are titled:
- IBW — What it is, where it’s been and why that matters
- IBW challenges — Why broad adoption will continue
- The future of IBW solutions
- Choosing the right IBW solution for your needs
- The opportunities of using DAS and small cells
- The role of unlicensed frequencies in IBW solutions
- When Wi-Fi is — and isn’t — sufficient
- How to deploy IBW
- Funding your IBW solution
- Your IBW future
CommScope also maintains an extensive network of partners who assist enterprises in selecting and deploying IBW network solutions. Members of CommScope’s PartnerPRO Network are independent companies that provide implementation services and IT infrastructure solutions based on CommScope technologies.
