The Within Wireless podcast discussed wireless and infrastructure technology in commercial real estate. The panel consisted of Lon Zakhar, CTO of Car Properties, and Mike Valls, Vice President for Mobility at Vigin Technologies. Building owners are interested in smart buildings that can enhance the customer experience and reduce costs by using interconnected HVAC units, intelligent lighting, occupancy sensors and more. Connectivity is vital to tenants who expect Wi-Fi, CBRS, private LTE 5G or cellular networks. The cost of these technologies varies, but building owners can cut costs by providing a backbone infrastructure while letting tenants invest in their own customized solutions as required. The discussion cited the example of One Congress building in Boston as an example of implementing Corning Fiber technologies to provide connectivity.
