    1. Industry coalesces around long-term small cell vision ahead of 5G

      Industry coalesces around long-term small cell vision ahead of 5G

      Network densification is seen as an imperative to support the vision of 5G. This requires many things: more fiber, more cell sites–at both the macro level and major increases in the number of small cell locations–broad support for all types of spectrum, interoperability and collaboration among industry stakeholders. To help drive these needs, Small Cell Forum has developed a vision for the evolution of networks in cooperation with 3GPP, GSMA, NGMN, ETSI, CTIA, ONAP, X-RAN, CBRS, TIA and MEF.

      Analyst Angle: Learning to share

      The benefits of coordinated shared spectrum Mobile network operators (MNOs) continually strive to quench their customers’ seemingly inexhaustible thirst for data, and their response to this relentless growth in mobile data traffic is to improve network capacity and performance. This can be done in any or all of three ways. Network performance can be increased by improving spectral efficiency using the latest access protocols with advanced modulation and coding schemes.

      Verizon pushes FCC for “one-touch” siting reform

      Verizon pushes FCC for “one-touch” siting reform 19 SEP 2017 Tweet Verizon renewed its call for the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to adopt a “one-touch” approach meant to streamline new infrastructure deployments. According to the operator, a “one-touch make-ready” strategy would provide faster access to utility poles and increase installation efficiency for new small cells and fiber by allowing a single contractor to do all the work.

      Federated Wireless intros CBRS spectrum controller, raises $42M

      Federated Wireless, one of the Spectrum Access System administrators for the 3.5 GHz ecosystem, says it is bringing spectrum sharing closer to reality with the commercial availability of its cloud-based spectrum controller to enable spectrum sharing.

      Federated also closed on a new investment funding round of $42 million, with backers including Charter Communications, American Tower, ARRIS and Singapore’s investment fund GIC.

    6. ExteNet Systems planning indoor and outdoor CBRS testing

      ExteNet Systems planning indoor and outdoor CBRS testing

      Based on a recent filing with the U.S. Federal Communications Systems, neutral host provider ExteNet Systems is looking to incorporate CBRS technology into its distributed network approach. Integration of spectrum support for the 3.5 GHz Citizens Broadband Radio Service is, as currently envisioned, based on a three-tiered priority approach, which could potentially allow new entrants to leverage the advantageous spectrum for a range of private network implementations while simultaneously providing new avenues of service delivery for established service providers.

      ExteNet has asked the FCC for special temporary authority for the “ongoing integration testing of CBRS base station and ...

    7. Analyst Angle: Longer licenses for 3.5 GHz spectrum will be good for 5G

      Analyst Angle: Longer licenses for 3.5 GHz spectrum will be good for 5G

      In recent weeks CTIA and T-Mobile US have both asked the Federal Communications Commission to change the way the agency plans to allocate the Citizens Broadband Radio Spectrum. If adopted, the proposed changes will help U.S. mobile network operators deploy spectrum in the 3.5 GHz band for 5G services.

    8. Less 5G talk, more 5G action on display at MWC Shanghai

      What a difference a year makes. At this time last year at Mobile World Congress (MWC) Shanghai, we first introduced our 5G NR sub-6 GHz prototype system and trial platform, and the standardization of 5G NR – the global 5G standard – had begun with the 3GPP Release 14 NR Study Item. Since then, we have made significant progress toward making 5G NR a reality and accelerated the 3GPP schedule.
