Why Wi-fi

Wi-fi transmits data over radio frequencies, similarly to small cell technology. Small cells operate on licensed spectrum and route traffic through carrier networks, whereas wi-fi uses unlicensed spectrum and routes traffic directly onto the internet. As a mature and widespread technology, consumers are familiar with wi-fi and demand it. While 80% of businesses believe consumers expect wi-fi from them, just 43% provide it to their customers.[i] Wi-fi is critical to the future of wireless infrastructure. By 2019, two-thirds of internet traffic will be wireless.[ii] Internet traffic is rising faster in busy periods, and more capacity is needed to meet peak demand. Part of a mix of short-range wireless solutions including DAS and small cells, wi-fi will be vital by offloading traffic from cellular networks.
