Nextivity CEO Werner Sievers discusses drivers of IBW capex and opex
After years of focused market education and outreach, building owners and enterprise decision makers have arrived at the realization that in-building wireless connectivity is an essential part of enabling business value in increasingly mobile workplace environments.
There’s a broad set of solutions available on the market including signal boosters, small cells, active distributed antenna systems, and hybrid solutions. While stadia-type venues and multi-million-square-foot commercial real estate command the investment in high-end, fiber-based active DAS, the largest and arguably most underserved market segment consists of much smaller spaces less than 500,000-square feet like hospitals, hotels, manufacturing facilities, warehousing space, and professional offices. For this middleprise market, cost is a primary consideration, Nextivity CEO Werner Sievers said in a recent conversation with RCR Wireless News.
