Iain Gillott’s research firm, iGR, has released a study that looks at DAS technology and its future deployment possibilities in the commercial building segment. The study shows that indoor DAS (iDAS) has been built out in most high-profile venues, and it looks at how the market for outdoor DAS (DAS) may be increasingly served by small cells.
“iGR believes that most venues that need DAS – stadiums, hotels, airports, etc., – already have it,” the firm said. “iGR also believes the market for oDAS is fading because solutions that use remote radio heads as small cells provide a similar level of coverage/capacity with better future flexibility for baseband hoteling and/or CRAN.”
The market for indoor and outdoor DAS is expected to increasingly be commercial and residential buildings in the next five years, according to the study . The amount to be spent to build and operate the systems is studied, as well.
“DAS will continue to be an effective solution for providing additional mobile coverage, and the commercial building segment is where iGR believes most of the DAS growth will occur over the next five years,” the firm wrote.
