U.S. Health Care Industry CBRS Nodes Forecast, 2019-2024: Private, Neutral Host & MNO Controlled

Earlier in 2020, iGR published a forecast of CBRS nodes deployed into U.S. health care buildings. This new report looks at those CBRS nodes and then splits those CBRS nodes into three types with a five-year forecast for each:

  • Completely private: Does not connect to an MNO
  • Prime tenant: Not private; one MNO builds, operates, maintains the network
  • Neutral host: Not private; at least two carriers connect to the network

Note that “private” in this context only refers to the RAN, not to the various (cloud) apps that will of course run on that RAN.

iGR created this forecast by relying on data gathered and published by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Commercial Building Energy Consumption Survey (CBECS) dataset regarding, among other things, the number, type and size of commercial buildings in the U.S. This report takes that forecast and applies the number of CBRS nodes to the number of establishments in U.S. health care industry sector as defined by the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS).
