pdf.png Fourth Dimension of Wireless Capacity Growth HOT

Download

There are commonly thought to be three different ways to densify wireless traffic capacity. Perhaps now there is a fourth, which involves orchestrating much better use of the complex variety of spectrum bands, modes and layers. SON vendors would lay first claim to this aspect and promise substantial improvements. The new term of HetNet gateway effectively spans both cellular and Wi-Fi into a single box, bridging and consolidating the best of both. This white paper examines the issues and context.

pdf.png Selecting an Enterprise Wireless Solution HOT

Download

This ThinkSmallCell white paper takes a top-down approach, considering the requirements for property owners, network operators and end-users when selecting an appropriate Enterprise wireless solution. We discuss how these map on to the various technical solutions on offer today, and point out potential commercial, technical and regulatory disruptors which could affect the choice in the future.

pdf.png The Enterprise - Unlocked HOT

Download

Could property owners, CIOs and other Enterprise users install their own in-building Small Cells, then go to a mobile network operator to have them connected? We investigate the technical, commercial and practical aspects of this radical approach. With many building owners already investing in their own Wi-Fi infrastructure, the additional cost of cellular may be as low as 20%. Could this allow mobile networks to scale up more quickly to meet burgeoning demand for faster, better quality wireless service?

Read this ThinkSmallCell white paper - The Enterprise Unlocked - which takes a thorough look at the subject.

pdf.png Navigating the Small Cell Challenge: Scaling by a factor of 10 HOT

Download

In future, capacity will be the main driver of network expansion and the total cost of each public access small cell (including site rental, power, installation and management) will be higher than for residential femtocells. Analysts forecast that over 20% of the capital expenditure on radio access networks will switch to small cells within the next 3 years. Given the much lower unit cost per small cell, this quickly translates to large numbers of installations. The effectiveness and efficiency of their deployment will become a major differentiator between wireless network operators.

This white paper examines the operational processes and tools required to accelerate the deployment of cellsites, scaling up by a factor of up to 10 times. De-skilling, velocity and precision will be three essential criteria for success.

This white paper is published by Actix (an Amdocs company).

pdf.png The Growing Synergy between Small Cells and Wi-Fi HOT

Download

Wi-Fi is no longer seen as a threat to the cellular industry, but as an additional capability to meet growing demand. Combining licenced and un-licenced spectrum in a single small cell allows operators to make the most of their resources. This paper looks at how these two radio technologies are merging, through partnerships and co-operation rather than direct competition.

This technical white paper was commissioned by Avren Events and written and produced by ThinkSmallCell in 2013.

pdf.png Multi-Mode 3G/LTE Small Cells HOT

Download

Mobile network operators face a difficult choice between investing in 3G and LTE technology. This paper reviews the options available, and why small cells are an urgent and cost effective solution for capacity independent of technology choice. it makes the case for multi-mode 3G/LTE small cells and outlines a four stage roadmap to achieve it. A sidebar provides our definition of a multimode small cell.

Concise, easy to read, this 9 page white paper delivers a clear understanding of what multi-mode small cells are and how they will be realised.
