Report estimates 2.5 million DAS nodes to be shipped by 2017

Analysis from Mobile Experts forecasts the DAS market to roughly double in size over the next five years, with a dramatic increase in the combination of DAS with Wi-Fi, public safety radio and LTE networks.

A fresh set of insights from Mobile Experts' principal analyst Joe Madden outlines the shifting outdoor and indoor distributed antenna system (DAS) landscape and thoroughly explains how Wi-Fi, public safety and small cells will be involved. "The Global DAS market has been built on major venues such as airports, sports stadiums, and tunnels," comments Madden. "Future growth will be driven by new vertical markets, with hospitality, healthcare, university and high-rise buildings becoming a more significant part of the market."

Mobile Experts' latest report, Global DAS Market: DAS combined with Public Safety, WiFi, and Small Cells, includes in-depth analysis of technical trends impacting the DAS equipment market. A five-year forecast is included to illustrate the trends in Wi-Fi and public safety adoption, along with LTE services. Twenty-six charts and exhibits clarify trends quantitatively. Both accurate and detailed, the firm notes that the report discards vague metrics such as "DAS revenue" and instead provides specific information about equipment, public safety, Wi-Fi and small cells.

"The DAS market will roughly double in size over the next five years, with a dramatic increase in the combination of DAS with Wi-Fi, public safety radio and LTE networks," adds report author Madden. "In addition, when high-capacity small cells such as picocells are more widely available, we can expect small cells to replace macrocells as the primary signal source for indoor DAS systems."

The report's analysis provides: separate analysis of indoor and outdoor DAS; DAS solutions deployed in major venues; facts and statistics about market drivers in campus, hospitality, and healthcare segments; information on the competitive landscape; local and international regulatory considerations; a full chapter of company profiles; and explanatory glossary and methodology sections.
