This white paper confronts the reality that the demand for wireless infrastructure continues to outpace the industry’s existing labor force of trained technology professionals, engineers and field technicians.Download
The Wireless Infrastructure Association regularly publishes white papers covering a variety of topics – from new technologies to potential regulatory issues – in order to inform WIA members, the wireless industry, the public, and lawmakers on the federal , state and local levels.
This white paper explores the fundamental shift in deploying in-building wireless systems as mid-tier venues emerge as the biggest growth area for DAS deployments.Download
This white paper outlines the requirements for fronthaul and backhaul transport solutions that are essential for the projected increases in cellular network usage, including the anticipated proliferation of equipment that will be necessary as the Internet of Things (IoT) emerges.Download
This white paper explains how to save time and money by including plans for cellular connectivity at the beginning stages of the design process.Download
Broadband is economic fuel, and wireless broadband access is an increasingly vital form of telecommunications. To ensure widespread, fair access and a competitive market environment, thoughtful regulations that promote efficient, timely deployments and encourage wireless broadband investment by the private sector are key for cities.Download
Six out of 10 Americans watch videos on their mobile phones on a daily basis, according to a new research report by iGR and commissioned by the Wireless Infrastructure Association (WIA). With so many users downloading or streaming video and music to their wireless devices via standard cellular data service, there is mounting pressure on mobile networks to meet the growing demand for more capacity.
