In-Building Cellular Solutions

Excellent Cellular Coverage, Capacity, & Services

Excellent Cellular Coverage, Capacity, & Services

The need for reliable, in-building cellular coverage has never been greater. So how do you cost-effectively, and quickly, improve cellular connectivity and capacity inside your venue?

Corning’s in-building cellular solutions portfolio meets a broad array of design scenarios and mitigates RF propagation challenges efficiently and effectively. The portfolio includes both single-operator and multi-operator (neutral host) solutions to deliver a variety of services in use by operators today, as well as a variety of frequency bands.

Our in-building cellular solutions, including modular LTE and 5G small cells and 5G tested distributed antenna systems (DAS) come with a small equipment footprint, have a low impact in power consumption and space requirements, and easily expand to support added carriers and bands. Differentiated management software provides end-to-end remote monitoring and enhanced system performance and serviceability, with advanced features that simplify set up, commissioning, and management.

Corning’s family of cellular products supports buildings from 10,000 square feet up to the largest stadium. If the requirement is a single operator small cell system or a DAS driven by OEM macro base stations, we have you covered.

Operators can offer Corning solutions to key enterprise customers or those same customers can directly purchase operator approved systems via Corning’s channel partners. Two of the three major United States mobile operators along with other Tier-1 global operator groups have approved the Corning SpiderCloud Enterprise Radio Access (E-RAN) small cell system. Additionally, the Corning ONE DAS is a proven performer in the largest and most demanding sports venues in the world.

Indoor Cellular Drivers

  • Enterprise mobility has gone from nice-to-have to mission-critical.
  • 80% of cellular usage is indoors.
  • Demand for mobile data is increasing, operator revenue is not.
  • An Indoor LTE and 5G coverage solution must have Wi-Fi like economics.
  • A 5G indoor cellular solution requires horizontal fiber, “Inside-the-building” signal delivery, and dense array of radios on each floor.
  • Enterprise executives are expecting to see the 5G service indicator on their smartphone.

The Practical IoT

The practical IoT: Planning and designing for the arrival of the Internet of Things

Much has been written about the Internet of Things (IoT) over the last few years, discussing both the explosive growth projections in the number of attached devices and the anticipated value to global business that they will bring. The growth projections alone are staggering. From the chart in this article, you can see that the numerical growth from 2018 to 2019 is 3.52 billion IoT devices globally.

By the year 2020, the IoT will comprise more than 30 billion connected devices. Find out how this impacts your network in the article originally printed in CablingInstall magazine.

CRE needs a backbone

CRE needs a backbone

In discussions of smart buildings, the benefits of deploying a network infrastructure to both increase the intelligence of the building with smart devices and also to deliver a persistent wired/wireless network are very well explained. However, there is a dimension that is a blind spot to anyone who has not actually leased or operated commercial real estate (CRE). This dimension is the need for a backbone and communications infrastructure that is independent of anything that a tenant will build for their own business operations. This discussion can also apply to enterprise-owned structures and not just CRE.

Don't Wait for 5G

Don't Wait for 5G

In “The Age of 4G/5G,” many enterprises may be suited to operate on LTE long term and will not require the additional 5G features. This does not mean that LTE won’t be replaced by 5G eventually, what it does mean is that the convergence onto a single network will happen more slowly because LTE is not collapsing under the load like 3G was when smartphones emerged. LTE will quietly co-exist alongside 5G and support our needs for some time into the future.
