If you were ever in doubt that managed Wi-Fi for MDUs is a giant business opportunity across the US then our latest Special Event on ‘Unlocking the MDU Opportunity’ should quell your concerns. Research from Parks Associates finds 50% of apartment dwellers in the US still report ‘network issues’.
Last week we had the pleasure of conducting a Wi-Fi NOW Special Event on ‘Unlocking the MDU Opportunity ‘ featuring Plume, Parks Associates, Thrive Broadband, and World Cinema – and it turned out to be one of the best discussions on this subject that we’ve been part of.
The overarching conclusion is that MDUs are certainly worthy of a lot of attention by vendors and service providers because they indeed represent a multi-billion dollar business opportunity for managed connectivity services including for tenants and building owners. But the devil is still in the details – and MDU managed services cases are often quite complex also requiring the fulfillment of basic digital infrastructure needs, said several participants including Robert Grosz, President of World Cinema.
