Large-scale 5G commercial deployments are expected to begin making their way across the U.S. by 2020. Now is the time to begin preparing for the costs related to bringing in 5G in-building.
It has become increasingly challenging for small to mid-size enterprises (SME) to prepare for costs associated with transitioning to 5G.
One of the primary means of controlling the costs of bringing 5G in-building is to eliminate the need for redundant infrastructure by pushing active components to the edge. To achieve this goal more building owners are opting for systems which use a combination of small cells and DAS.

“The exact path to 5G for in-building solutions is still evolving. Support of active elements at the edge is the key and the primary strategy to prepare is extending power and connectivity to the endpoint”, said Roderick Maddox, an engineer with Pierson Wireless.”
