In-Building Wireless Solutions

Coverage and capacity for indoor spaces

Eighty percent of wireless calls originate from indoors—yet only 2 percent of commercial buildings offer in-building wireless solutions (IBW) to manage the traffic. The rest rely on an overly-congested macro network to provide coverage and capacity, and for some irate customers, it’s just not enough.

IBW solutions can offload this traffic in high-rise buildings, across sprawling campuses, through massive stadiums and other high-density demand areas. The challenge lies in the fact that no two deployments are the same; no two venues identical in shape, size, configuration or even building material. Fortunately, CommScope offers a full portfolio of IBW solutions that intelligently adapt to your unique circumstances and expectations.

  • ION®-E, the low-power unified wireless infrastructure solution that converges wired and wireless networks on economical Category 6A and fiber-optic cable. It dynamically transports capacity wherever it’s needed via software—no remote reconfigurations or patch changes necessary—so you can add new operators, bands or technologies without adding hardware.
  • InterReach Fusion® solution offers a low-power, flexible, scalable, seamless extension of the macro network to indoor spaces over standard CATV cabling.
  • FlexWave® Spectrum extends wireless services throughout buildings and campuses. Spectrum features digital RF transport with edge-to-edge bandwidth, multiband flexibility, and the CPRI interface eliminates costly headend equipment reducing total cost of ownership. 
  • ION®-U, the combination low- and high-power DAS solution that can cover massive indoor spaces, sprawling outdoor spaces or both in one compact, space-saving headend. It simplifies deployments with powerful planning, commissioning and optimization tools, making for a virtually error-proof installation.
  • FlexWave® Prism, the industry’s first combination of DAS and RRH products, Prism improves wireless network coverage and capacity by extending services from existing cell sites to hard-to-reach areas by distributing coverage from a centralized radio suite. Its CPRI interface eliminates costly headend equipment, reducing total cost of ownership.

These, along with CommScope’s other solutions, provide the power and flexibility to design an economical and powerful network that keeps customers connected, productive and happy.

Does cell virtualization offer a peek at 5G?
Mobile operators are proposing network architectures and setting up labs such as Telefonica’s 5Tonic to gain experience with candidate technology approaches for 5G. CommScope’s recently announced capability called cell virtualization is consistent with the way that industry-leading operators are talking about 5G network architectures. Cell virtualization is a way to multiply the capacity of a single physical cell while avoiding the penalty of border interference and handovers. See today’s blog post for Josh Adelson’s insights into how cell virtualization might fit into the 5G vision. Read more
