Research and Markets: Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) Revenues in the Hospital/Healthcare Vertical to Approach US$5 Billion by 2017

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/ng2bkk/distributed) has announced the addition of the "Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) - Modular, Versatile, and Effective" report to their offering.

DAS Revenues will Continue to Grow Along Side Small Cells and Wi-Fi

DAS is an important in-building and outdoor cellular augmentation option for mobile operators. The DAS is an integrated network that connects spatially separated antennas locally to remote access units via coaxial cable or fiber optic cable. DAS platforms can concurrently support multiple carriers and multiple frequencies spectrum channels.

However, there are many who feel that the future of DAS may be threatened by Wi-Fi and small cells. MRG Analyst Chris Kissel explains his view "While DAS is a great solution in many verticals, it is an expensive proposition. Thus, there are instances where small cells and Wi-Fi may fit the bill. However, it's not always an 'either, or' situation. For the foreseeable future, small cells will always have trouble dealing with the multiple frequencies that are supported by DAS, and with Wi-Fi, there are range limitations. Under the right circumstances, DAS can work with Wi-Fi and small cells to provide the ultimate solution."

Key findings from this study that covers 10 verticals and six regions include:

- While there are verticals where DAS penetration is at nearly 100%, such as Stadiums, great opportunities remain in the Healthcare and Hospitality segments.

- Through 2012, DAS installations have been prevalently installed by North American operators, although MRG believes that, looking forward, DAS adoption will happen at a faster rate in CALA, the Asia Pacific, and the Middle East and Africa than in North America.

- MRG expects that outdoor DAS installations will erode over the course of the forecast period as key benefits, such as easier (than macro base station) permit acquisition, become moot.
