DAS AND THE DEMAND FOR CONNECTIVITY: CRE PROFESSIONALS ADDRESS A NEW NORMAL
The demand for digital connectivity is higher than ever, and the commercial real estate industry is taking note.
CRE professionals will gather at the Bren Event Center at UC Irvine on Feb. 8 to discuss the future of reliable and scalable wireless technology. The daylong event, hosted by DASpedia and sponsored by SOLiD, will provide an opportunity to network with and learn from professionals across multiple industries, including healthcare, education, urban development and public safety.
The event will begin with a keynote from Steve Wozniak, whose invention of the first Apple computer in 1976 kick-started a technological revolution. Over four decades later, people have access to more technology than ever before.
As of 2015, 68% of American adults owned a smartphone and 45% had a tablet. The world is now home to more gadgets than people. With more people using wireless devices, the need for speed and connectivity is at an all-time high.
This increased demand is impacting a number of industries, especially commercial real estate. In this new age of technology, buildings, stadiums and campuses are turning to Distributed Antenna Systems to improve wireless connectivity and increase speed in densely populated spaces. SOLiD is one company leading the charge in DAS technology. Last year, SOLiD installed DAS solutions that provided WiFi to all of New York City’s 287 underground subway systems. These solutions have also improved wireless reliability at the Daytona International Speedway and the University of Oregon.
