Third party/neutral hosts to rule U.S. $9.5 billion in-building wireless market

ABI Research says...

While carrier-led deployments account for more than 47% of in-building wireless deployments today and vendor-led deployments sit close to only 10%, third-party/neutral hosts control close to 43% of overall market deployment revenues and are set to grow that share to over 54% by 2020. ABI Research anticipates that the industry will see a larger concentration of neutral hosts funding enterprise projects in the years ahead.

"Commercial property owners, such as real-estate companies or enterprises, are taking more responsibility for in-building wireless systems and provisioning their own buildings," said Nick Marshall, research director at ABI Research. "Subscribers and employees expect wireless coverage and capacity the same as they expect running water or electricity from a building. In-building wireless is increasingly viewed as business-critical and is becoming a major marketing tool for building and venue owners."
