Implementing Integrated Multi-Technology Networks
9/3/2014 5:56:18 PM
Heterogeneous Networks comprising base stations of varying form factors in a layered architecture are imperative to optimize coverage and capacity. Capacity and coverage can be further augmented by providing the consumers with an alternate channel for data by leveraging ubiquitous WiFi.
Small cells are a critical component of these heterogeneous networks that provide multiple benefits including coverage and capacity optimization, enhancement of user experience and data offloading for reducing the load on core networks. Multi-mode small cells provide the further benefit of supporting LTE, 3G and Wi-Fi using just once device.
This whitepaper provides insights into the benefits of HetNets and the various implications involved in deploying small cells. It discusses the various aspects to be considered while deploying small cell such as powers supply, backhaul, timing, antenna etc. It also discusses the benefits of WiFi offloading and ways to implement automatic network selection and automatic authentication.
Aricent played a key role in developing the first 3G small cell. We provide a comprehensive suite of standards compliant small cell software enablers to help Communication Equipment Providers (CEPs) rapidly develop small cell access points and gateways. These frameworks have been optimized on leading hardware platforms to help reduce complexity and risk. We also provide multi-mode small cell software that can support LTE, 3G and WiFi simultaneously or in any combination thereof.
