Small Cells Boost Network Capacity
SMALL CELL SOLUTIONS
RAN Wireless small cell solutions enable carriers and operators to fill-in coverage and significantly increase capacity in the most affordable and efficient manner
With the recent increase in mobile broadband users, the requirement for fast, mobile data connectivity has increased. As this demand is skyrocketing at an exponential rate, so is the pressure on carriers to keep up with that demand and retain customer satisfaction, all while containing costs and maintaining a healthy revenue profile.
Lower cost points in comparison to larger cell infrastructure
All-outdoor design, eliminates need for enclosures, air-conditioning units and other costly requirements of split indoor/outdoor deployments
Small cell units can use existing street ‘furniture’ such as street lamps and utility poles
Exponentially increase cell capacity with in-fill locations as well as along macro cell edge where capacity often experiences a drop
Smaller, quicker to deploy form factor

SMALL CELL DEPLOYMENT PROCESS
wALK TEST ROUTES &
Generation of Walk test routes(.TAB files) per files using iBwave tool for data collection.
Preliminary design by placing small cells per floor.
SURVEY & BENCHMARK REPORT
Roof accessibility,AC power, Grounding and environmental control, Identification of possible cable routes.
Identify MDF and IDF rooms
Verify possible locations for antenna placements.
Data collection by site walk
Generation of scanner plots per floors for UMTS and LTE through Actix and TEMS Discovery.
A detail report of our findings to the customer
After verification from survey report, final design is done by validating the Small Cell placements and CAT-5 cable routes to Ethernet Switches in their respective IDF rooms.
A successful Small Cell deployment comes from the best of the designs and an implementation that achieves the highest quality. Our engineers, installers and field technicians understand what it takes for a Small Cell solution to be brought on-air in the shortest period of time
