Customers’ dependence on wireless communications and their adoption of high-bandwidth 3G cellular services are the primary drivers of the global growth of in-building wireless systems that extend and create wireless coverage indoors.

According to a new study from ABI Research, deployments of these systems are expected to result in revenues in excess of US$3.6 billion and a growth rate of 20% annually by 2011.

“People spend a significant amount of time indoors and not surprisingly they also expect indoor access from their outdoor wireless service,” said ABI research analyst Dan Shey.

“As a result, commercial buildings will be a major focus of the in-building wireless systems industry, affecting carriers, businesses, building owners, equipment manufacturers and solutions providers.”
