SMALL CELL VENDORS CREATE BLUEPRINT FOR REAL ESTATE INDUSTRY

Power, space and cabling are three essential requirements for indoor small cells, and the companies that make these compact radios are teaming up to educate builders on how to best accommodate small cells. The Small Cell Forum has published a vendor-neutral guide for the real estate and building design industries entitled “Making buildings small cell ready.”
Will real estate developers spend more to make their buildings ready for small cells? This question remains to be answered, but it is clear that the added cost of making a building ready for small cells is likely to be lower than the cost of making adaptations after the structure is complete.
“Building owners know that tenants are increasingly insisting on good indoor mobile coverage,” said Small Cell Forum chief strategy officer Julius Robson in a blog post. “A growing number of building owners and tenants are now using small cells to provide excellent mobile indoor coverage and capacity, as well as carrier-grade features like PBX integration, content caching and precise indoor location.”
Robson said the Small Cell Forum is also working with the Telecommunications Industry Association’s smart buildings working group to ensure that small cell readiness is a requirement for smart building design.
