Distributed Small Cell

 

  • Primarily single-operator solutions supporting one or two frequencies bands per small cell
  • Supports 3G (UMTS) or 4G (LTE) technology and WIFI
  • Available in licensed operator cellular bands like 2100/1700MHz 
  • Can operate in unlicensed WIFI spectrum to provide capacity boost as a downlink offload 
  • Well-suited for enterprise applications where single operator deployments are the norm and where combined LAN plus cellular communications on the same cable infrastructure is highly valued 
  • Power for each small cell is typically delivered over the LAN cable through a POE+ driver 
  • Simple is virtually eliminated. No RF cabling, limited frequency combinations (single operator) and the very low transmit power levels (<250 mW) present at each small cell radio
  • Passive intermodulation is virtually eliminated. No RF cabling, limited frequency combinations (single operator) and the very low transmit power levels (<250 mW) present at each small cell radio
  • Connects directly to the operator’s core network or through a security gateway or to a hosted private network core using a luh and S1/X2 interfaces
  • Can be offered as a private network with enterprise self-management

 

Typical Small Cell Deployment Scenario

Small Cell Deployment

 

Small Cell Applications

 

  • Capacity enhancement technology that also provides coverage
  • Leverages existing local broadband access for backhaul
  • Well suited for small office/home office situations, in branch offices or in large enterprise buildings.
  • Primarily used indoors, can also be used to serve a corporate campus.
  • Premises-based deployment; government buildings, hotels, retail and hospitals as well as SMEs or corporate campuses
  • Deployment is coverage driven but small enterprise-specific services and analytics are offered. These are larger units physically, with higher RF power, longer range and higher traffic capacity.
  • 32 to 64 concurrent users per small cell
  • Larger capacity being achieved across a campus or large building by deploying multiple units.
  • Appropriate deployment guidelines allow enterprise IT personnel to successfully plan and deploy these devices, although operator/System Integrator personnel may be involved in the larger deployments.
  • Backhaul may be shared with existing enterprise internet connectivity or use a dedicated connection.
  • Comes in outdoor form factor for cost efficient rural and small community coverage applications
