Nextivity demystifies in-building cellular networks and explains how Cel-Fi solutions shorten time-to-value from months to weeks

Having ubiquitous, reliable, and performant in-building cellular service isn’t a courtesy. These days, it’s how business gets done. Businesses continue to ratchet up cellular data use as new use cases for mobile communication seem to pop up continuously, promising improved business communication, better worker productivity, and greater institutional efficiency than ever before. But getting ubiquitous coverage indoors or on campus using traditional Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) is an expensive, time-consuming proposition that only works for the biggest businesses. Nextivity’s award-winning Cel-Fi cellular solutions provide enterprises with a pathway to indoor cellular at a much lower cost, with fewer deployment headaches.

What’s driving this need for enterprises to focus on in-building coverage themselves? In short, it’s the tension between how business gets done and how mobile networks are built. While Communication Service Providers (CSPs) have spent billions to secure spectrum and build out their macro networks, many have had to pause or eliminate in-building and small cell network buildouts.

In fact, the onus for providing that service has shifted in many cases to the businesses themselves, said Stephen Kowal, Chief Commercial Officer of Nextivity. In a recent chat with RCR Wireless Editor-in-Chief Sean Kinney, Kowal said that ubiquitous mobile coverage is increasingly perceived as a basic business utility, the same as heat, water, and electricity.
