New Integrated In-Building Cellular and Wi-Fi Solution Meets Demand for Borderless Mobility

- July 1, 2010 - 0 Comments

The demand among organizations is growing for indoor Wi-Fi and cellular coverage that supports enterprise connectivity with no degradation of wireless services and offers a low total cost of ownership.

To meet this demand, Cisco and MobileAccess have announced a new Integrated In-Building Cellular and Wi-Fi Solution.  This innovative solution delivers a pervasive and reliable borderless mobility experience for both cellular and Wi-Fi networks by using an organization’s existing LAN infrastructure. 

This integrated solution cost-effectively distributes cellular RF signals inside buildings by using an organization’s existing Category 5/6 Ethernet cabling. This flexible approach lets organizations add cellular coverage and expand their Cisco Unified Wireless Network at a significantly lower installation cost and in less than half the deployment time of other in-building cellular solutions.

This powerful solution lets organizations easily deliver scalable, carrier-grade cellular coverage anywhere in a building – and unlike other solutions, companies maintain the full integrity of the Wi-Fi network.  Fully tested and validated by Cisco, the solution supports the full features and functionality of the Cisco Unified Wireless Network including high-performance 802.11n with CleanAir technology, MIMO, ClientLink, and context-aware services

The Cisco and MobileAccess solution is currently being deployed in a variety of environments including The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), which is using the integrated offering in several campus buildings to provide reliable cellular and wireless coverage at a fraction of the cost of alternative solutions.

With more organizations planning indoor cellular networks and the indoor cellular market expected to grow nearly 25 percent over the next four years, it’s great to know that this new solution will help companies save costs and save time by using their existing LAN infrastructure to deliver reliable cellular coverage anywhere, at any time – while maintaining the full integrity of the Wi-Fi network.
