BUCHDORF, GERMANY: Hypothesis or not! However; when 80 percent of mobile connections are made inside buildings but only about two percent of the world’s commercial space is covered from the inside, obviously something has to transform.
That change is taking place at the moment, as CommScope presents a completely fresh architecture for in-building wireless systems.
Unveiled by CommScope, the ION-E is a unified wireless infrastructure platform designed around IT-based structured cabling architecture, making it friendly to both wireless operators and business enterprises alike. The flexibility, scalability and simplicity of the system resolve the issues associated with rapidly changing indoor coverage and capacity demands.
The ION-E brings together licensed wireless and power plus Gigabit Ethernet for WiFi into one unified wireless network that can scale to building size and is technology and spectrum adaptive. Unlike any other offerings available today, it features multi-band, multi-operator and multi-technology capabilities and uses the standard IT structured cabling infrastructure common to most commercial buildings.
The ION-E is currently available for operator trials in Europe with expected general availability in other regions in the second half of Fiscal 2014.
