Small Cells Are the Great Enabler

Optimized-Small-Cell-DASThe unprecedented growth of demand for wireless data is radically reshaping the telecommunications landscape. The extraordinary thing is that despite this explosion, the likelihood is that even more dramatic growth lies ahead. Currently, advanced forms of LTE are being deployed. These will be followed by 5G, which is moving from carrier and vendor labs to field tests. Indeed, 5G is running ahead of schedule. Demand has sparked the development ecosystem

There’s More to In-building Wireless Than DAS and Small Cells

Smart-City-Distributed-Antenna-Systems-and-Small-CellIn-building wireless is a red hot market, particularly given the shift from carrier subsidized deployments to enterprise- or neutral-host led financing models. To better enable enterprise buyers, equipment vendors are looking for ways to take cost and complexity out of DAS and small cells, the two solutions that get the majority of the mindshare when considering the in-building space. But there are more tools in the kit. Warner Sievers, CEO

A New Approach to Indoor LTE Coverage

Commercial Mobile Networks have been around for over thirty years.  They began as simple voice networks but have evolved to sophisticated data networks where voice is but one of the many applications supported by the network.  Those early voice networks were analog based: AMPS in North America, TACS/ETACS/JTACS in Europe and Japan, and NMT in the Nordic countries.  As mobile voice networks picked up popularity, digital voice networks replaced these
