DAS & SMALL CELL
7 FACTS COMMERCIAL
NEED TO KNOW ABOUT
ommercial property managers often deal with maintaining and improving property value
to enhance tenant retention and increase acquisition.
However, there's one building investment on the rise: many tenants & their customers
are demanding full cellular coverage indoors.
Yes, wifi will always be the primary in-building wireless system for most enterprises, but in a
world of rising employee BYOD (bring your own device), parity between cellular networks and
landline internet (especially with 5G coming), and wifi cost & reliability issues, having a cellular
IBW system is not just good practice but future-proofing when users depend on coverage day in
and day out.
In order to provide quality upgrades and continued good tenant & customer relations, many
commercial real estate development & management companies are now investing in enhanced
in-building cellular solutions when it comes to leasing income-producing real estate.
