Today, we are witnessing fewer 1Gbps network drops to each wall outlet and many more 10Gbps ceiling drops to support wireless growth. Wireless has evolved from an optional convenience, to an expected service.
Moving forward, the ceiling will become digitized with connected sensors to control building automation systems. Additionally, bandwidth demands will ultimately require Wireless Access Point (WAP) density of one WAP per room. Like any medium (fiber, copper, wireless), there is an inverse relationship between bandwidth and reach. WAPs will need to broadcast using higher frequencies (5GHz and beyond), where it becomes more difficult to penetrate walls, doors, and other barriers.
