iGR President Iain Gillott Discusses $19.7 Billion U.S. DAS Forecast With RCR Wireless News

Video of Interview, Which Covers a Range of DAS Topics, Available on the RCR Website

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwired - December 10, 2015) - One type of small cell being used by U.S. mobile operators to address in-building coverage and capacity issues is a Distributed Antenna System, or DAS. For its latest market study, iGR, a market research consultancy focused on the wireless and mobile industry, analyzed the use of DAS in the U.S., specifically in commercial buildings and multi dwelling units (MDUs). As part of the study, iGR forecasted that the five-year cost for the build spending and operating costs of DAS from 2014 to 2019 would total $19.7 billion.

On December 7th, Iain Gillott, president and founder of iGR, discussed the new study and forecast with Jeff Mucci, CEO and Editorial Director for RCR Wireless News. The interview, a video of which is available to view on the RCR website, covers a range of issues, including the number of installations and the cost of DAS in the U.S., Distributed Radio Systems (DRS), the future of CPRI (Common Public Radio Interface), challenges regarding small cells, 5G and, finally, wireless and mobile predictions for 2016.

"After continued analysis of the DAS market, we have forecasted the number of U.S. DAS installations in commercial buildings and multiple dwelling units, as well as the associated build and operating costs," said Iain Gillott, president and founder of iGR. "iGR expects that from 2014 to 2019 spending for both the build and operating costs of DAS will total $19.7 billion."

iGR's new market study, U.S. DAS Market Forecast, 2014-2019: Installations, Tenancy, and Spending for commercial Buildings and MDUs, provides a five-year forecast for the number of installed DAS in the U.S., the associated build spending and operating costs, and the total addressable market for DAS in the U.S. Forecasts are split by the size of building. The study also defines DAS architecture, discusses the advantages and challenges of DAS, and provides profiles of almost twenty DAS vendors.

The following key questions are addressed in the new market study:

  • What is the DAS architecture?
  • How do DAS and small cells compare?
  • What is the difference between neutral DAS and single host DAS?
  • What are the challenges that surround a DAS deployment?
  • What are the advantages provided by DAS?
  • What are the typical use cases for DAS?
  • What is a DRS and how does it compare to DAS?
  • What are the key elements and assumptions in iGR's total addressable market forecast for DAS?
  • What is the five-year total addressable market forecast for DAS systems in both commercial buildings and MDUs?
  • What are the key elements and assumptions in iGR's market forecast for installed and carrier DAS?
  • What is the five-year market forecast for installed and carrier DAS in commercial buildings and MDUs?
  • What are the key elements and assumptions in iGR's build spending and operating costs forecast for installed DAS in commercial buildings and MDUs?
  • What is the five-year build spending and operating costs forecast for installed and carrier DAS in both commercial buildings and multi-dwelling units (MDUs)?

The information in this market study will be valuable for:

  • Mobile operators
  • DAS vendors and solution providers
  • Mobile network infrastructure OEMs
  • Mobile network software and services providers
  • Financial analysts and investors.
