Every smart campus is carefully designed to take advantage of the latest set of technologies our industry has to offer. All they need is a wireless network that does not break the bank. Safety and security systems, smart lightning and meeting room solutions, building automation systems, connected parking technology to count a few. These technologies come with a very expensive line item in the overall project budget – fiber pulls, Ethernet cable drops and/or subscription to operator data plans. As we try to find ways to ensure predictable network performance for these critical infrastructure components, we do now have a new option.
With a private LTE wireless network operating within the interference free CBRS spectrum, real estate professionals and their customers within the enterprise facilities teams, can take advantage of up to 75% cost savings in capital expense – and save even more given the agility of wireless connectivity provides for moves, adds and changes. During my interview at the Realcomm 2020 conference, I have tried to connect the dots between CBRS based private LTE wireless and the bottom line for smart building / campus initiatives.
