Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) in Mid-Tier Markets

The in-building wireless industry has seen a fundamental shift in the market for Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) over the past 24 months. An ever-increasing ecosystem of integrators and solution manufacturers are meeting market demand.

Mid-tier venues are now emerging as the biggest growth area for DAS deployments. These mid-tier venues range in size from 100,000 square feet to 500,000 square feet and represent every imaginable vertical, structure design and ownership model. There are strong and sound arguments to deploy DAS solutions in these venues: DAS provide both a data and voice capacity for carriers and an enhanced experience for venue patrons. Nonetheless, there are significant barriers to overcome.
