Technology Evolution, Fire and Building Codes, Occupant Safety and Expectations, and the evolving use of building spaces in the “new normal context” are having simultaneous impact on current and future in-building connectivity needs. Without careful planning, property owners, operators, and managers could miss a valuable opportunity to optimize investment and satisfy current needs while thoughtfully considering what might be needed in the near future and beyond.

This panel of industry experts, moderated by Safer Buildings Coalition’s Managing Director John Foley, examines the value of collaborating with the experts to create an In-Building Infrastructure Master Plan.

Areas of Discussion:
• Building Occupant and Owner needs and expectations
• Benchmarking existing coverage and connectivity performance
• Technology Drivers such as Private LTE, 5G, and more
• External Forces such as changing FCC Rules on Spectrum, and evolving Fire and Building Codes
• The Critical Role of establishing pathways and additional capacities
• Stakeholders to include in creating the Master Plan
