“The indoor market is stuck in second gear because the solutions are not innovative enough and the incentive for other vendors are not there. If vendors have a high margin outdoor solution they don’t have the incentives to provide a very low cost indoor solution,” says Rajesh Mishra, CTO and Founder, Parallel Wireless.
What is required is a multi band, multi technology solution that is as cheap to deploy and operate as WiFi, allied to new neutral host and multi-operator business models, says Mishra. Parallel Wireless, which is producing small cells in a range of form factors, says it is leading innovation in this sector.
At Mobile World Congress 2017, Parallel Wireless was demonstrating a DAS solution integrating with its HetNet Gateway architecture, plus a four band demo with Vodafone.
