Appledore have identified network coverage and new business models as key to telco innovation success (see our  Reinventing Telco – Innovating beyond technology report) nowhere is this more apparent than in delivering CSP connectivity within existing buildings.  The future of telco will also increasingly be built on disaggregated solutions (see our Disaggregation for Growth: Telco as a Platform report). We see neutral-host players enabling better and ubiquitous in-building coverage, quickly.

Tel Aviv-based startup Cellium is an enabler of this future, allowing building and venue owners to become neutral hosts with their EdgeAir products providing indoor access to LTE, 5G, Wifi and IoT networks, at a fraction of the cost of conventional distributed antenna systems (DAS).It also provides a compelling proposition to CSPs to deliver their connectivity, partnering with building owners to deliver ubiquitous coverage at a low price point.

We profile the company and its solution as part of our Operator Strategies & Vision research module.
