The Middleprise market is the next challenge for densification.
You’ve probably heard the stats…80% of all mobile calls originate indoors, mobile data will explode 10X by 2021 and in-building wireless networks will approach $20B in just a few years.
What’s behind these numbers? The “Middleprise” market.
