Much has been discussed about the “digital divide.” According to the Internet Society, at a high level the digital divide is the gap between those with Internet access and those without it. But the digital divide is multifaceted and includes many factors such as access, affordability, quality, and relevance.
A much less discussed digital divide is the one that begins at the building wall. In-building wireless coverage varies widely, from purposefully engineered connectivity to frustratingly non-existent. In a very real sense, in far too many buildings crossing the threshold from outdoors to indoors is like going from a first world to a third world country.
This panel discussion, hosted by the Safer Buildings Coalition, seeks insights from experts on the following topics:
- In-building wireless current state
- Exploring the current options: DAS, WiFi, private networks
- End User Device convergence
- Addressing end-user connectivity and public safety connectivity
- A roadmap for the future: Mesh networks?
