There is a fierce battle raging between distributed antenna systems (DAS), Wi-Fi, and licensed small cells for coverage and capacity in enterprise wireless systems. Each type of system has its strengths and weaknesses with active DAS systems the choice for large corporations which we define as over 100,000 square feet and with more than 100 employees. Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) have the choice between Wi-Fi and small cells.
The use of Wi-Fi functionality in small-cell base stations will be a game changer for cellphone service providers, easing heavily congested data pipes while linking together billions of devices into a single network architecture, according to the IHS iSuppli Mobile & Wireless Communications Service at information and analytics provider IHS.
