  • 4G LTE

    LTE is revolutionizing the mobile experience. Mobile users can now enjoy ultrafast speeds on the move, letting them download, stream, upload photos and play games anywhere, any time. LTE also gives mobile operators a world of new possibilities, with new ultrafast speeds offering them a direct route to new revenues and subscribers – but deploying LTE now is crucial. Read More

  • Backhaul

    Backhaul is a vital element in delivering the increased capacity and coverage offered by small cell technologies. The connection between small cell nodes and the operator’s core network supports the effectiveness of the small cells and ensures a great customer experience. Read More

  • Regulatory & Planning

    To deploy small cell technologies successfully means working with local administrators and municipalities to tick all the necessary compliance boxes. Building permissions, traditional and non-traditional sites, spectrum licensing, health and safety regulations, licenses and fee requirements must all be factored in to deployment planning. Get regulatory and planning issues right at the start and avoid bigger problems further down the line. Read More

  • Outdoor Metro Cells

    Outdoor metro cells in urban environments add network capacity to improve the customer experience – faster email delivery, better video streaming, and great internet surfing.  When used in rural locations, they help to boost mobile network coverage removing rural ‘notspots’ where  macro cells are cost-prohibitive and traditional mobile masts and towers damage the landscape.   Read More

  • Indoor Metro Cells

    Buildings of made of steel, glass and concrete typically have high levels of attenuation, preventing macrocells reaching deep inside. Indoor metro cells bring the power of the network inside. They  utilize existing broadband connectivity for backhaul to the core network and they can integrate with local Wi-Fi. Read More

  • Enterprise Cells

    Enterprise small cells bring enhanced mobile coverage and dedicated network capacity to offices, factories, shops and hotels. They are small, unobtrusive, low-power devices that operators can use to bring the network to in-building locations. Supporting up to 32 simultaneous calls, enterprise cells deliver seamless coverage to buildings where the mobile signal is poor. Read More

  • Macrocells

    Macrocells are the mainstay of the mobile network, delivering wide area coverage to the largest number of users. However they can present cost and site selection challenges to operators. Radio interference and topography can impact the coverage and capacity macrocells can deliver, risking leaving some users with little or no service within a cell. Read More

  • Home Cells

    Home Cells bring 5-bar mobile network coverage into the home. Easy to install, they are self-configuring and utilize domestic broadband connections. Residential Home Cells, also called femtocells, are capable of supporting up to 8  users at a time within a range of around 10 meters.  Home cells are a great way of enabling operators to extend service coverage to indoor locations.
