  6. 6. 6 In-Building Wireless  IBW Global Market – Market projected to grow to north of $8B by 2015 – Mobility services extension in-building  Acronyms – DAS / Distributed Antenna Systems - required to provide adequate coverage and capacity within buildings – BDA / Bi-Directional Amplifier – BTS / Base Station Transceiver  Enterprise Market – Fortune 1000 – Hospitals and Healthcare – Universities and Higher Education – Government (Fed/State/Local) – Multi-Tenant/Use and Hospitality Billions
  7. 7. 7 Market Drivers  In-building coverage wasn’t designed for by the carriers, primarily focused on macro coverage  Mobile data growth – New devices  iPhone, iPads, Android phones and tablets  45% of all phones today are smart phones – Bring your own device  Workforce mobility via smart devices increasing rapidly (data/video)  By 2014, nearly 75% of all workers will use cell phones as their primary work phone
  8. 8. 8 Market Drivers  Mobile Data Growth – Over 100M iPhones shipped in 2011 (Apple) – Android approached 100M in 2011, 75M Blackberry devices deployed through 2010 (RIM) – Cisco predicts smart device use will boost mobile web use by 26-fold by 2015 – Workforce mobility via Smart Devices increasing rapidly (data/video) – 70% of all phones today are Smartphones – Over 75% of all wireless calls are generated from within a building – By 2014 nearly 75% of all workers will use cell phones as their primary work phone – In-building coverage wasn’t designed for by the carriers, primary focus was macro coverage  Multiple Services / Multiple Carriers – Multi-band capability to handle multiple services – Emergence of advanced services - 4G, LTE, WiMAX, etc – Multi-operator requirement emerging rapidly especially for enterprise, large businesses, multi-tenant/use, venue and campus environments – Emergence of dual-mode phones – both WiFi and cellular
  9. 9. 9 Market Drivers Public Safety – First responders and emergency response requires ubiquitous coverage – Move to 700 & 800 MHz systems results in lesser in-building signal penetration requiring IBW solutions – Ordinances and building codes now requiring nearly 100% coverage in all building areas  ICC IFC ‘09  NFPA 72 2010 – In addition to updated rules for in-building fire emergency voice/alarm communications systems, this new chapter includes first-time provisions for: – Risk analysis requirements for the design of mass notification systems (MNS) – In-building MNS – Wide-area MNS for locations such as college campuses and military bases – Distributed recipient MNS to communicate with targeted individuals or groups – In-building radio enhancement systems – Area of refuge for two-way emergency communications systems
  10. 10. 10Below Grade Occupancy Types Of buildings that cause signal problems  Offices and corporate campuses (Fortune 1000)  Universities and school campuses  Hospitals and healthcare  Government buildings  Hospitality  Multitenant, multiuse Deep Cavernous Buildings Below Grade Occupancy High-Rise Buildings Market Drivers: Problem Buildings
  11. 11. 11 Types of buildings  Multistory  Campuses Market Drivers: Problem Buildings Problem: Too Much/Little Signal  User has full bars of power but cannot connect – the device can’t decide what to use
  12. 12. 12 What is a Distributed Antenna System?  Space-separated antennas  Connected to common source via transport medium  Provides wireless coverage within a structure or geographic area 12
  13. 13. 13 How It Works
  14. 14.  Passive Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) – RF is distributed using coax cables to each antenna from a repeater or base station fed source – Generally less expensive than active DAS, but coax cable losses limit their effectiveness in large buildings for higher frequency transmissions – Low cost and primary solution used for smaller buildings  Active Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) – Fiber-optic cabling to extend signals through a network of antennas – Electric components convert and amplify signals to RF for radiation by the antenna – Fiber-optic cabling overcomes the transmission losses that occur w/ coax-based system and therefore are a preferred solution in large buildings  Distributed radio solutions – The systems consist of small cellular radios, called picocells and femtocells to create an internal cellular network – Do not rely on the macro network for switching and hand-offs – Evolving technology often used for ‘Hotspot’ solutions Types of In-Building Wireless Systems
  15. 15. 15 Technology Comparison Active DAS, Passive DAS, Repeaters, Picocells, Femtocells 15Source: ABI Research April 2011 Features/Equipment Active DAS Passive DAS Repeaters Picocells Femtocells Capacity vs. Coverage Both Both Only Coverage Both Both Installation 3 - 16 weeks due to Carrier Coordination 3 - 16 weeks due to Carrier coordination A few hours, only requires power out and line of sight to neighboring macro base station. Must be carrier approved gear Few days, requires backhaul and power cabling, provisioning done through network operator management center Few minutes, self installable, self provisioning, in case grid- connectivity will require cabling for power and backhaul Multicarrier/Single Carrier Multi and Single Multi and Single Multi and Single Single Single Single Band/Dual Band Single and dual Single and dual Single and dual Single Single
  16. 16. The Enterprise Market Today: Enterprises:  Want their cellular devices to work for voice and data – Vast majority cellular calls originate or terminate indoors  Most Enterprise complaints to Carriers for in-building performance issues go unresolved: – Business models and carrier return on investment gaps are the primary driver for unresolved requests. – As a result, many Enterprises have long standing issues with in-building cellular that have gone unresolved – IT organizations taking more control over cellular decision making – Cellular devices converging voice and data / require support from IT – Significant unresolved demand present – Key is facilitating the right model and solution
  17. 17. The Carrier DAS Market Today:  Significant Investment in Public Venues:  Stadiums  Convention Centers  Airports – To address today’s and near term capacity demands on cellular networks  4G LTE Overlay – Verizon and AT&T are aggressively deploying LTE to address future demand, enable new services, more efficiently use spectrum and drive down operating costs  Verizon and AT&T are driving majority of DAS activity – mostly in Public Venue. Sprint and T-Mobile are driving some DAS activity at a lesser level with some Enterprise activity.  Regional/low cost providers (MetroPCS, Leap, Cricket, US Cellular) do not have a significant track record in deploying Enterprise DAS.
  18. 18. Acronyms  DAS – Distributed Antenna System  BDA – Bi-Directional Amplifier  BTS – Base Transceiver Station  iDAS – Indoor DAS  LAN – Local Area Network  LTE – Long Term Evolution  MIMO – Multiple Input Multiple Output  SISO – Single Input Single Output  RAU – Remote Antenna Unit  RF – Radio Frequency  SI – System Integrator  WLAN – Wireless Local Area Network  BOM – Bill of Material

  29. 29. 10PRIVATE AND CONFIDENTIAL © 2011 CommScope, Inc Wireless Complexity IBW • ION-B remote capable of handling multiple frequencies and carriers. • ION-B Master with dedicated units per cellular carrier allows to balance the RF power equally per carrier and ION-B remote sharing. Multi carrier, multi frequency and cellular technology agnostic: Scalability • Additional carriers or changes are done at ION-B master therefore any additional carriers or frequencies require only intervention at the master side. Simplest topology • Single fiber pair per ION-B remote carrying all frequencies, carriers and technologies  Least amount of fiber needed. • Multicarrier remote with high power reduces the amount of remotes needed. • Small size equipment and with lowest power consumption (highest efficiency RF output power vs consumption) Why CommScope?
