What is On-Premises Cellular Network?
On Premises Cellular Network provides enterprise customers with flexible options to design, install, and manage Distributed Antenna Systems (“DAS”) and Small Cells. A Distributed Antenna Systems (“DAS”) is a network of antenna nodes connected by either coax or fiber that provides cellular coverage at the customer premises.
There are two types of DAS systems:
- AT&T-owned (AT&T is the only operator/carrier)
- Neutral hosted/single carrier or Multi-Carrier
AT&T’s Small Cell and DAS utilize industry-leading equipment suppliers.
Does On-Premises Cellular Network include 5G?
On-Premises Cellular Network supports LTE & 5G technology. Our solutions enable emerging technologies like MEC, IoT, AI, and augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR) applications that will require robust cellular coverage and capacity to support new business applications. With the advent of 5G technology, AT&T is looking ahead to help ensure that customers who want to employ future wireless communication protocols can do so by having AT&T build out their state-of-the-art indoor cellular DAS system
Can I bundle On-Premises Cellular Network with other AT&T network services?
Yes – AT&T offers On-Premises Cellular Network solutions with Multi-Access-Edge Compute (MEC) solutions.
What’s the difference between Wi-Fi 6 and 5G?
Many industry experts believe that Wi-Fi will coexist with 5G and be a key part of many 5G use cases.
From 1G through 4G (LTE), licensed spectrum was exclusively used with the mobile cellular networks. However, with the carryover of unlicensed 5GHz (LTE-LAA) and the planned inclusion of unlicensed 6GHz combined with licensed spectrum portfolio, 5G is differentiated from Wi-Fi 6. 5G now has the potential to carry traffic from both 5G mobile devices and Wi-Fi devices on the same radio network backbone. The long-term plan is to use spectrum from low, mid, and high band frequencies. Low band is less than 1GHz, mid-band is between 1GHz and 6GHz, and high band is everything else above 6GHz including the millimeter wave frequencies
Wi-Fi 6 utilizes unlicensed spectrum exclusively. Wi-Fi 6 works in the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands, which are the existing Wi-Fi bands.
Wi-Fi 6 also continues to operate in the 900 MHz band and 60GHz band. The 900Hz band (HaLow) offers longer range and lower power connectivity for low bandwidth IoT applications.
The 60GHz band, in the millimeter wave region of spectrum, is well suited to deliver multigigabit speeds, but due to limited propagation, distance is shorter than the other frequencies in this standard. The use of these bands is also unique to Wi-Fi 6 and previous Wi-Fi versions.
