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. Several small cell solution vendors offer gateways and controllers to co-ordinate and manage each radio access technology. The new term of HetNet gateway effectively combines both cellular and Wi-Fi into one box, bridging and consolidating the best of both.
This white paper examines the topic in the context of the myriad of technology choices which network operators are being offered to expand capacity, using both cellular and Wi-Fi.
