Proposition – In-Building Solutions

Having a good mobile network coverage within a building plays an important role in attracting and retaining mobile subscribers within the building/s. Especially in the workplace, Airports, Hotels, Convention centers, Hospitals, Banks etc. If the service provided is more stable, it tends to add more users to the mobile service providers.

To meet this ever-growing demand, building owners are finding it of paramount importance to deploy a strong in-building wireless solution. As a result, addressing the coverage, quality and capacity requirements of In-Building users is mandatory.

A building may not receive adequate mobile coverage from outdoor cell sites. This is because in most cases the signals present outside the building are unable to penetrate the building material, consequently resulting in poor coverage within the building. A typical problem in high rise buildings is the problem of interference, where at higher floors a full network presence is detected but a call cannot be made successfully due to interfering signals. In addition, crowded areas like Malls, Airports, large Commercial complexes need a dedicated system to handle the capacity requirements for the large   number of calls at such locations.

To answer the challenging responsibility, a well-planned in-building coverage system is required.  With 3G, it’s vital to keep control of interference levels, and buildings with walls, limiting the signal distribution, provide a natural barrier against interference. In-building solutions allow in moving the capacity inside the building without any trouble.
