In-Building Solutions (IBS): A Crucial Element of the 5G Era

Published: 12 May 2024

As mobile communication technologies continue to evolve, mobile networks have become an integral part of our daily lives, impacting us in ways we may not even notice. Amidst this evolution, In-Building Solutions (IBS) play a pivotal role in ensuring seamless and rapid connectivity in the 5G era.

Today, the number of mobile phone users worldwide surpasses the global population. Many individuals possess multiple mobile devices, and an array of digital products rely on internet connectivity, ranging from smart cars to smart home devices. The vision of an interconnected world, where everything is not only visible and tangible but also communicative, is swiftly transitioning from concept to reality.

With the rapid advancement of mobile broadband and the continual enhancement of personal mobile devices, users are growing increasingly reliant on broadband networks for their mobile needs. Data surveys reveal that during the 4G era, 70% of mobile data services occurred indoors, a figure predicted to exceed 80% in the 5G era. 

A significant challenge arises with the advent of 5G technology: unlike its predecessors, such as 2G, 3G, and 4G, the higher spectrum utilized for 5G poses a greater hurdle for outdoor signals to penetrate indoor areas, even with augmented signal power. This transition to higher frequencies inherently makes it more difficult for signals to propagate through walls and buildings. Consequently, ensuring seamless connectivity indoors becomes increasingly complex. To address this challenge, the deployment of In-Building Solutions (IBS) and Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) is no longer merely a strategic option; it transforms into an essential necessity. These advanced solutions facilitate the distribution of wireless signals within structures, optimizing coverage and capacity to meet the escalating demands of indoor connectivity in the age of 5G.

We invite you to delve deeper into Comba’s innovative solutions that are shaping the future of indoor connectivity. Join us in engaging discussions to explore the potential of IBS in the 5G landscape and beyond.
