In-Building Wireless - The Long Hard Journey Continues - 4/26/2018
Many emerging countries have the benefit of not having to manage existing telecommunication infrastructure. In developing countries such as Korea, China, and India they have gone straight to the most current infrastructure and as a result have extraordinary coverage outside and inside buildings. Today, in many iconic as well as average buildings in North America, cell coverage is not guaranteed. With the world becoming more mobile and device dependent, unreliable coverage inside buildings is a growing problem. This webinar will provide an update on emerging technologies as well as overall strategies designed to address this important issue.
