Report: Only a third of European architects consider mobile access in buildings

A study carried out by Coleman Parkes on behalf of network infrastructure provider CommScope found that providing access to mobile network coverage inside buildings appears to be considerably less important to European architects than to their counterparts across the Atlantic, with less than a third (31 per cent) always considering it for their projects compared to nearly two thirds (65 per cent) in the U.S. The report noted that consumers now expect robust wireless service everywhere, yet the vast majority of the world's commercial buildings do not offer dedicated cellular networks to meet this enormous demand. Approximately 80 per cent of wireless data traffic originates or terminates within a building. Report
