Subscribe Mobile Network Infrastructure

Mobile Network Infrastructure delivers end-to-end coverage of the infrastructure with a strong emphasis on access networks and enabling technologies, as well as the data traffic flowing across these networks. Our coverage includes radio access topologies from antennas, base stations, and access points to supporting front-haul, back-haul technologies. We pay special focus to innovative technology deployments for indoor and outdoor networks operating under both licensed and unlicensed spectrums, including MIMO, massive MIMO and beamforming, distributed antenna systems, carrier aggregation, new waveforms, and new modulation schemes.

Indoor Wireless Networks Transformative Horizon

This report examines the rapidly transforming in-building technology and market. A confluence of advanced technologies including LTE-Advanced Pro, 5G, LAA/LTE-U, CBRS, MulteFire and IoT will merge DAS and Small Cell architectures requiring advances in C-RAN, V-RAN, MEC and Fronthaul. Public safety networks will operate in parallel with existing P25 and Tetra and will require in-building deployment for fully redundant, fault tolerant connectivity in the building. In-building system ownership will migrate to enterprise or venue-led business models as in-building systems migrate to smaller and more numerous buildings.
