In an increasingly competitive move, mobile operators are looking to increase service availability and balance operational costs by deploying indoor and outdoor DAS. This deployment, combined with ven- ues, communities and businesses that want to gain access from all carriers, is creating opportunities for DAS neutral hosting. While there are several business mod- els for neutral hosting, including variable approaches to equip- ment ownership, management and maintenance responsibility, and monthly leasing, there is an upside for carriers, providers and venue owners. The attractiveness for the carriers is that they can offload the sig- nificant effort of securing access to venues and negotiating leasing terms. Additionally, carriers can avoid the capital investment for equipment purchases and for network management. For neutral host providers, their investment can be leveraged to provide ac- cess to multiple carriers and, depending on the deployment model, to a solution that shares the upfront investment. Venue owners gain a competitive ad- vantage and deliver a great experience for both patrons and tenants. The ultimate success of the neutral host business model relies on: 1. A robust design and function to address current and future requirements including services, additional capacity and the scalability expand to provide additional coverage. 2. A solution with low impact to the venue operation. The hot buttons are architectural aesthetics, public safety system requirements and back-of- house communications options for the venue owner. 3. An equitable division of responsibility, risk and financial gain between the neutral host, the mobile operator and the venue owner. For more information, visit www.tessco.com/go/das.
