In-Building Wireless Coverage and the Case for Pre-Wiring with CommScope’s Wired for Wireless Solution

A white paper from CommScope describes the benefits of properly cabling a building or facility for the support of future wireless technologies. The paper is entitled “In-Building Wireless Coverage and the Case for Pre-Wiring with CommScope’s Wired for Wireless Solution.” CommScope has trademarked the term “Wired for Wireless,” as it is the name of a product line from the company.

The 13-page paper addresses the following topics:

  • In-building wireless design considerations
  • Minimum signal level thresholds
  • Antenna locations
  • Path loss versus distance
  • Reasons for installing horizontal cabling for wireless during initial construction

It then provides information on the Wired for Wireless system, including its components, features and benefits.

An annex to the paper includes additional guidelines for antenna-placement design.
