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

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).
