Segra Enables Carriers to Meet Demand for Connectivity and Prepare for 5G

Segra, one of the largest fiber infrastructure network companies in the Eastern US, has announced In-Building Wireless to help wireless carriers meet increased demand for more bandwidth and prepare for 5G.

With an estimated 80% of mobile traffic originating or terminating within a building, universal in-building wireless networks are vital to business operations. Connectivity demand, preparation for 5G and environmental constraints all contribute to carriers investing in Segra´s In-Building Wireless.

A massive increase in the number of devices localized in metropolitan areas with limited tower capacity drives competition for the bandwidth supplied by a single tower. In-building wireless solutions allow users to be off-loaded to lit building networks, which increases the performance of the local macro tower and ultimately the experience for the users. By off-loading traffic from high-rise buildings, vast campuses, crowded stadiums and hotel properties, Segra ensures end-users stay connected and have the best mobile experience possible.

In addition, public expectations that 5G will provide a faster, more advanced network connection than ever before put pressure on carriers to deliver a superior end-user experience. Providing 5G capabilities comes with the need for increased bandwidth availability as well as for devices located closer to transmitters for short RF band lengths. By providing lit buildings with wireless transmitters, carriers´ customers will experience the benefits of 5G.

By leveraging Segra´s experience, network and quality of service, carriers can immediately benefit from Segra´s solution and its support of in-building antennas, enterprise Wi-Fi, public safety networks, LTE small cells, and Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS).

Segra is one of the largest independent fiber bandwidth companies in the eastern US The company has an advanced fiber infrastructure network of more than 23,000 miles that connects more than 9,000 on-net locations and six data centers throughout nine Mid-Atlantic and Southeastern states.
