In the Innovation category, Dali Wireless beat out its competitors due to its Matrix and RF Router digital DAS technology, which represents a significant change in DAS technology and offers DAS owners and operators significant CAPEX savings. Corning was ranked second for its Corning ONE platform and scored best in class points for its scalability and support of multiple technologies. Third in the category is Cobham Wireless for its idDAS system. Cobham Wireless scored best in class points for its advanced features and scalability.

In the Implementation category, Corning takes the top spot thanks in large part to its growing business in North America and a significant European footprint. The company also scored highly for its system integration abilities. CommScope ranked second in this category. The company is the largest DAS vendor by market share largely due to its acquisition of TE Connectivity’s DAS business. Also contributing to CommScope’s ranking is their geographical penetration and system integration abilities. Cobham Wireless rounds out the top three vendors as a global leader in public safety and transportation systems.

“The DAS equipment vendor continues to be hyper competitive, and since we last published a competitive assessment in 2014, there have been several mergers and acquisitions that changed the competitive landscape,” says Nick Marshall, Research Director at ABI Research. “TE Connectivity’s DAS business was acquired by CommScope, Axell was acquired by Cobham, Zinwave was acquired by McWane, and CSI sold its DAS equipment business to Westell. Since we expect the North American market for DAS to grow rapidly, this region becomes the battleground for market share and innovation for modern DAS systems.”

In this latest refresh of its Competitive Assessment of DAS vendors, ABI Research assessed 13 companies. The companies included are Advanced RF Technologies (ADRF), Bird/DeltaNode, Cobham Wireless, Comba Telecom, CommScope, Corning, Dali Wireless, Fiber-Span, JMA Wireless, Kathrein, SOLiD Technologies, Westell and Zinwave.
