U.S. Office Private CBRS Network Forecast, 2021-2026: CBRS Network Build, Integration and App Spending in Commercial Office Buildings

Office buildings in the U.S. have long been targets for indoor wireless networks, since people have historically spent large amounts of time at work and modern office buildings are generally good at blocking RF signals. Similarly, private cellular networks, especially those using CBRS, are seen as good solutions for commercial office buildings.

CBRS allows the building owner or tenant (a CBRS network may be installed by either) to provide private LTE/5G service to the occupants of the building and the building itself, supporting HVAC, environmental systems, security systems and access systems alike.

For this report, iGR defines an inbuilding private cellular system as one that uses the U.S. CBRS band for 4G/5G-based services and is funded by a third party distinct from a Mobile Network Operator (MNO). Note that iGR includes campus-wide cellular networks within the “inbuilding” umbrella.

This market study provides a five-year forecast for spending for three types of spending on in-building private cellular systems using CBRS in U.S. office buildings. The three types of spending include:

  • Network build and operational spending: the costs associated with installing and operating the private CBRS network
  • Network/systems integration spending: the costs associated with designing, sourcing equipment, integrating the network and applications, etc.
  • Applications: the costs associated with purchasing and licensing the applications that run on the private CBRS network.
