Here is an informative whitepaper by iGR on the benefits of wireless networks for commercial properties.
Outdoor cellular coverage and capacity has improved significantly in the last two decades, such that the majority of the population now relies on their smartphones for personal and business communication. Indeed, an entire generation has now grown up without using a landline telephone or wired Ethernet- cellular and Wi-Fi are all they know.
We found an informative article written by Steven Reinhard of Connected Magazine. Steve writes:
Today, a well-known and highly cited statistic is that 80% or more of wireless calls originate indoors. Wireless communications are integral to how we live, work and play, and wireless networks and network connectivity have become the utility of the 21st century. No longer can owners of office buildings depend on reliable wireless coverage being provided by legacy outdoor towers or rooftop antennas. Today’s tenants view indoor wireless connectivity as essential to their ability to maintain an office and work, on par with electricity and climate control.
