ABI Research: Public safety DAS spend to double to $1.7B by 2021

ABI Research predicted that the evolution to LTE-based public safety from the current narrowband systems will grow at double-digit rates over the next five years with public safety platforms doubling their DAS (distributed antenna systems) spend by 2021. The company estimates that in-building wireless public safety system revenue will reach $1.7 billion (€1.5 billion) in 2021. The region with the largest spend is North America, followed by Asia-Pacific, then Europe. During this period, public safety agencies will use LTE in parallel with their legacy narrowband systems, the research company said. Over the next five years, in-building communications systems, such as DAS, will be used to distribute public safety coverage and capacity in buildings, the company added. Report
