A recent study by PwC across Canada encourages Canadian business leaders to put their customers at the heart of re-imagined spaces. One key is REaaS Real-Estate-as-a-Service.
The challenge is implementation. If property owners rely on cell carriers to provide the internet systems they need for fast, indoor, secure, mobile access – tenants will lose. The cell providers are scrambling to install 4G antennas for spectrum that they recently bought.
5G is another matter. Although some service providers are advertising and selling 5G phones – they have no 5G spectrum to use. The CRTS spectrum auctions for 5G have not started. We expect it will take 5 years to deploy 5G in Canada. It involves a huge expenditure of time and resources to implement. Not to mention Hauwai. 5G antennas will be needed every 50 meters.
And 5G has a major tenant limitation. Yes it is fast, but it can only be used outdoors. Why? 5G signals are absorbed by walls and windows. Tenants that buy 5G phones will get today’s speeds (4G) indoors.
To provide the mass of mobile internet based services – driven by video – business leaders need to provide equally fast for tenant experience and expectations. Tenants spend 85% of the time indoors – at home and work.
The working technology for this is WIFI6. It has 5G speeds, compatibility with all devices, security, mobility, capacity and works indoors. WIFI6 provides indoor fast speeds and capacity to all devices.
Antenna Management Corp. works at the leading edge to implement and manage WIFI6 systems for residential and office buildings and creates a new shared revenue stream with owners.
As tenants trend to co-working, co-living, mobile flexible lifestyles – they will look to owners to provide Real Estate as a Service (REaaS). WIFI6 is the key internet link.
WIFI6, AMC and tenants are ready.
