Bridging Macro & Indoor
Challenges and Key Applications for Campus Networks
In the 5G era of wireless networks, we will see ever-greater emphasis on “campus” deployments. These are large locations that go beyond a single building, spanning multiple structures, outdoor areas and even underground zones. A key part of indoor planning is to understand the coexistence of in-building signals with that from the outside network.
The need to focus on campus networks – bridging the gap between macro and in-building – is being driven by a wide set of technology and use-cases.
Listen to iBwave’s Marc-Antoine Lamontagne and Disruptive Analysis’ Dean Bubley as they dive into key trends driving the need for a more holistic campus-wide view, such as:
Greenfield sites needing reliable coverage across multiple buildings and busy outdoor public spaces
New enterprise-based applications requiring consistent campus-wide coverage, such as security cameras, Industry 4.0 and automated vehicles
The evolving roles of traditional mobile carriers, private enterprise networks, neutral-host providers and new vertical-focused MSPs
Unique features and capabilities of 5G networks, such as ultra-reliable connectivity, network-slicing and beam-forming that will need to be coordinated between indoor and outdoor domains
New requirements for wireless coverage from connected vehicles, to drones, public safety agencies and many other non-consumer/smartphone users
