Understanding the Science Behind Small Cell Deployment

by: Sarat Puthenpura,

The continued surge in mobile data demand, paired with the finite nature of spectrum resources, and the desire to provide customers with the highest quality service has landed network operators in an interesting position over the last few years. In response to these needs, several carriers have turned to small cell technology as one solution to address these challenges. Small cells are low-power radio access nodes that provide a resourceful network solution for coverage, capacity, and quality.
