INDOOR SOLUTIONS 101
Evolution of wireless communications brought the change to the landscape of and relationships within the industry. In the past it was not uncommon for wireless operators to provide [in-building] wireless solutions as part of service offering, but today everything has changed. Not only operators do not have resources to provide indoor coverage solution for all venues that need it, but with shift away from long term contracts it simply no longer makes financial sense for operators to invest in a single operator in-building solution. It is a new reality that end users - be it commercial real estate, hotel, small business office or place of residence - become responsible for providing indoor cellular solution just like they do for other life essential utilities.
