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

Transportation buildings encompass airports, bus and railway stations, as well as inland and coastal ports. There are thousands of airports, bus, and railway stations/terminals in the U.S. Many of these buildings are already home to distributed antenna systems (DAS), small cells and Wi-Fi systems to handle travelers’ voice/data traffic, along with enterprise communications. Additionally, there are several hundred inland and coastal ports in the U.S. through which import/export traffic passes. These ports are typically covered by a combination of Wi-Fi and MNO-owned cellular networks.

For this report, iGR defines an in-building 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 “in-building” umbrella. In this report, the vast acreage covered by ports or airports is considered a “campus” deployment.

This report defines a transportation building as one located at an airport, bus or railway station/terminal or port. Note that iGR has excluded all warehouse and/or storage buildings, even those located in transportation hubs, because those warehouse/storage buildings are included in their own report.

This market study provides a five-year forecast for spending for three types of spending on private cellular systems using CBRS in U.S. transportation 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.

Key Questions Answered

  • What is a private cellular network?
  • How can a private cellular network be used to create a connected transportation building/campus?
  • What is the primary purpose of a connected transportation building or campus and what role do these buildings play in supply chain logistics?
  • What technologies are required for a connected transportation building or campus?
  • What use cases are enabled in a connected transportation building or campus?
  • How much will be spent to build and operate a private CBRS network in U.S. transportation buildings from 2021 to 2026?
  • What is the forecasted network/systems integration spending associated with the private CBRS network opportunity in U.S. transportation buildings from 2021 to 2026?
  • What is the forecasted applications spending for private CBRS networks in U.S. transportation buildings from 2021 to 2026?
