LTE in Unlicensed Spectrum: Driving Innovation in the Enterprise

Enterprise networking has long faced a standardized competitive environment largely defined by Wi-Fi solutions. That is about to change with the introduction of MulteFire, a new wireless solution that will bring seamless connectivity to users with enhanced coverage and capacity.

This new LTE-based technology can be deployed standalone in unlicensed or shared spectrum, allowing Enterprises to deploy private and neutral host LTE networks with fewer access points than traditional solutions, ultimately reducing CapEx. Harbor Research, a strategy and technology research firm that works with leading technology innovators, product OEMs and service providers, has forecast that the total addressable revenue for Enterprise markets deploying MulteFire will reach nearly $2.5B in 2023. In this webinar, the MulteFire Alliance joins Harbor Research to provide insight into how this technology will help venue owners and operators reduce costly distributed antenna systems and licensed carrier small cells, while ensuring coverage and capacity for users, regardless of carrier.
