Small Cell Forum December 2013 - Release Program Infographic

  1. 1. RELEASE PROGRAMME THE CHALLENGE More than 98% of operators think small cells are essential to their future. BUT Existing deployments have centred on almost 50 pioneering and mostly very large operators in developed markets. How do we help the next 150, more conservative operators of all sizes, roll out their own networks in 2013? THE SMALL CELL FORUM’S RELEASE PROGRAMME ADDRESSES THIS CHALLENGE. WHAT IS A RELEASE? 1 2 A “how to” guide to accelerate the commercial deployment of small cells – encompassing residential, enterprise, metro and rural use cases. 3 A distillation of consensus building, standards development and deployment experience by members and industry partners. An output that encompasses industry best practice and use case analysis plus a Roadmap reflecting market direction. FOR OPERATORS | A comprehensive guide to small cell deployment FOR VENDORS | Develop products based on carrier requirements and successful rollouts ANSWERS THE QUESTION Am I ready to launch small cells?
