The In-Building Wireless Ecosystem is a complex array of Wireless Carriers, OEM’s, Integrators, material suppliers, distributors, cable assemblers, and labor resources. Priority RF is expert in this space.
The Wireless Industry is impacted rapidly by technology evolution (and revolution), product life-cycles, and ever evolving standards—driving to a 5G next generation that will weave licensed and un-licensed spectrums utilizing vastly divergent frequencies.
Adding to this complexity are In-Building Public Safety Communicatoins requirements, and an ever growing assortment of AHJ’s (Authorities Having Jurisdiction - Local, State, Federal), plus code agencies (NFPA, ICC) who can decide compliance, provide Certificate of Occupancy, and have significant influence on capital budgets..
All of these vectors have frequent and regular impact on Wireless Carrier, Third Party Operator, Enterprise, and Government funding and spending cycles.
