BAI Communications is ready for 5G

For many years, BAI Communications has been providing traditional cellular and Wi-Fi infrastructure for MNOs and transit operators in cities like New York, Toronto, and Hong Kong, benefiting millions of underground commuters, while also operating an extensive transmission network for radio and TV broadcasters in Australia. Now, under the leadership of its new Group CEO Igor Leprince, BAI plans to leverage its technical and strategic expertise in network rollouts to become a 5G neutral host services provider and maximise the business cases for the new technology across some of the world’s largest cities. TowerXchange has interviewed BAI’s new Group CEO to find out the company’s plans and discuss some of the challenges and opportunities that 5G is bringing to telecom infrastructure providers.
