In Building Solutions
One of the fastest changes in mobile network rollouts is occurring inside the buildings. Picocells are the ideal solution for providing coverage, capacity to indoor traffic hot spots and other priority installations, such as;- Airports , Railway stations, Hotels Shopping centers, and Large corporate clients.
It has been estimated that 70-90% of all mobile calls are made inside the buildings. It has also been noticed that it is becoming too expensive to increase the indoor location probability by outdoor sites (>90%). So the easiest way to provide good in-building coverage is to use picocells inside the building. That provides good coverage and capacity inside the building and at the same time releases capacity to outdoor cells. These solutions are mostly based on Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS), Fiber Optic Distribution Antenna Systems (FODS) or picoBTSs.
