    1. Planning tools to take away one pain point of enterprise small cell rollouts

      Planning tools to take away one pain point of enterprise small cell rollouts

      One interesting comment from this interview with NSN's VP Portfolio Management was that the design and planning tools that operators use can actually hinder the deployment of new technology that could actually provide a benefit to those network planners. The reason is that their planning software wasn't modelled to include the latest or newest technology (in Robrecht's example it was active antennas). Therefore it's tempting for them to stick with what they know.

    2. Understanding NSN's performance quality strategy

      Understanding NSN's performance quality strategy

      It is Tuesday afternoon at Mobile World Congress. Your writer is wondering aloud exactly how many announcements NSN has made before and during the event. It seems the company has been releasing press statements for three weeks. NSN's VP Portfolio Management, Thorsten Robrecht, chuckles and says the vendor has had 50 - he spells it out - "Five-Zero" product launches around MWC. Well, we've got just shy of half an hour for this briefing, so there's no point trying to list them.

    3. What has Qualcomm done for the network lately?

      What has Qualcomm done for the network lately?

      Qualcomm, as you will no doubt know, has had the device chipset market tied down about as much as is possible in a global market. Yet the vendor is also working hard to turn its top end device know-how into design wins in small cell technology - notching up a number of scores with small cell vendors such as ip.access, Alcatel-Lucent and Cisco.

    4. Orange Technical Director pushes small cells back to 2016, welcomes virtualisation progress

      Orange Technical Director pushes small cells back to 2016, welcomes virtualisation progress

      Keith Dyer spoke to Yves Bellego, Director of Technical Strategy, Orange Group. Bellego is certainly interested in topics as small cells, NFV and LTE-A feature sets - but his emphasis was on ensuring any new technology introduction is truly tested for reliability and scalability. A key phrase he repeated through the interview was "step by step". His network vision was also one of building a network from large to small, from outside to inside.

    5. Mobile World Congress 2014 - Small Cell Report

      Mobile World Congress 2014 - Small Cell Report

      MWC comprises a huge exhibition, tons of meetings and a co-located conference. Here we review it from a Small Cell perspective. In my view the conference itself was pretty dull (fireworks party without matches). The keynote themes were broadly to expand and grow user base, exploit the SIM card to authenticate for access control in many other ways, and evolve data capacity.

    6. Small Cell Forum to launch Urban Release at Mobile World Congress

      Small Cell Forum to launch Urban Release at Mobile World Congress

      The Small Cells Forum will launch the third part of its release programme during Mobile World Congress. The Forum has split its planned third release - addressing outdoor small cell deployments - into two parts. The first part - Release Three: Urban Foundations - will outline business cases, deployment strategies and bring together the work of the Forum for outdoor deployments of small cells in metro areas.

      A week in the net: SON, fronthaul, backhaul, small cells, and a manifesto for change

      1. Ericsson: lots and lots Last week it was NSN's turn, this week Ericsson decided to pull the pin out of the grenade and launch a bunch of releases at the market. There's not much more I can do that point you to these releases on Ericsson's own site, save to note a couple of things. 1. Small cells is really rising up Ericsson's public agenda although there's not much detail on its Small Cells as a Service release. 2.

      5G and the battle of the bands

      By Gerry Foster, SON Engineering Director, and Steve Bowker, CTO, AIRCOM International , a TEOCO company The global emergence of LTE has seen new levels of innovation being introduced in terms of mobile network architecture. The ability to add new software layers to existing infrastructure provides a cost effective way of delivering a better quality experience to users while reusing all existing network assets, wherever possible.

      Todd Mersch, Radisys, reports a mix of bleeding edge and practical Small Cell engineering

      Todd Mersch, General Manager of Software and Solutions at Radisys, is well placed to provide a high level view of the state of Small Cell product development. He travels the globe talking with many different designers and operators about all types of Small Cell products. We caught up with him recently and asked him whether he sees most activity in 3G or LTE, how significant TD-LTE will become and what part the larger RAN vendors are playing in the Small Cell market today.

    10. Enacting Disruption: Cloud Radio Access Networks

      Enacting Disruption: Cloud Radio Access Networks

      By Frank Rayal, Xona Partners and Joe Madden, Mobile Experts

      The evolution of base station architecture to a split design comprising baseband processing and remote radio head (RRH) connected by a fiber optical cable heralds the advent of Cloud RAN. As an architecture, Cloud RAN is much more than centralizing baseband processing in one location and using the fiber optical cables to connect to remote radio heads located at the cell sites.
