Everyone can see that these combined trends are a problem for mobile operators. The mobile operator must feel like a father that brings home his paycheck, to find that his family has already spent it.

Have you ever visited a big urban hotel, to find that mobile service was weak? Don't you wonder why nobody has fixed the coverage or capacity issue? Maybe I stay in the wrong hotels, but this seems to happen almost everywhere I go. The answer lies in economics, not technology.

After two years of study, we are ready to make a conclusion.
The newly constructed World Trade Center complex in New York City also has a new distributed antenna system (DAS) that was installed by Axell Wireless to support a bevy of public-safety users.

Even an overgrown mouse working as a sorcerer's apprentice can be challenged to deliver better wireless service at an expansive theme park. So AT&T has worked its magic to improve communications across several Disney properties in the United States.
A common digital interface between Alcatel-Lucent's mobile broadband network equipment and TE Connectivity's distributed antenna systems (DAS) is aimed at lowering costs for operators that need to add bandwidth in high-traffic locations such as sports stadiums and hotel complexes.
