New Mobile Infrastructure Options Undermine DAS in the Enterprise Market

Mobile Experts Inc. releases a new report with details on 8 vertical market areas

CAMPBELL, Calif., May 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- This month, Mobile Experts highlighted the trend away from DAS, as the market moves away from stadiums in favor of smaller buildings.  Small Cells, DRS, CBRS, and Boosters have emerged as low-cost options for mobile infrastructure, and Mobile Experts has released a report which provides detailed cost analysis to compare these new options. The report examines each technology choice for vertical market scenarios in stadiums, airports, hotels, hospitals, retail, corporate, and other vertical markets.  

"Almost every major stadium has already been outfitted with DAS, so vendors are naturally shifting toward smaller buildings in new market areas," remarked Senior Analyst Kyung Mun. "DRS and Small Cells, especially CBRS small cells in the United States, can be very cost-effective alternatives with operator-neutral capability.  Boosters (commonly called repeaters) are another very low-cost option which has grown dramatically for key vertical markets."

As the in-building market transitions from the top end of the market (stadiums and airports) to smaller venues across diverse vertical segments, multiple vendors have started to promote in-building mobile infrastructure to hotels, hospitals, commercial real estate managers, and others.   These vertical market players are developing a strong pent-up demand for improved mobile coverage, and are increasingly willing to pay for it.  The Mobile Experts report provides estimates of revenue enhancement for each vertical market, based on improvement in the mobile coverage inside the building.

For this recently-released report, Mobile Experts interviewed at least 20-30 mobile operators and compared the top-down input received from said operators with the bottom-up inputs from OEMs and semiconductor suppliers. The key element in most Mobile Experts forecasts is simple: If we don't see demand from the operators showing up at the semiconductor level, then it's not real.  

According to Mobile Experts, the market will grow from over $2.4B in 2016 to over $3.6B in 2022. The DAS segment is expected to fall from almost 70% of the total Enterprise Mobile Infrastructure equipment revenue in 2016 to 50% in 2022. Meanwhile, Small Cells revenue share will increase from 20% in 2016 to 31% in 2022. The Repeater revenue share is expected to grow from 11% in 2016 to 19% in 2022 as the market transitions to serving smaller enterprises and venues.

This Enterprise Mobile Infrastructure report provides profiles on more than 80 companies, and highlights the rise of the neutral-host business model that will be critical to helping mobile operators and businesses to work together.  The 92-page study includes more than 40 charts and diagrams to clearly illustrate the dynamics of the market.
