We would like to invite you to an exclusive webinar entitled 'Carrier Wi-Fi Meets Small Cells', presented by Maravedis-Rethink and featuring our guest speaker, Mr Tao Sun, Program Manager for Network Technology at China Mobile, the world's largest mobile operator, which has an ambitious program for TD-LTE, small cell and Wi-Fi deployment.
Tao Sun has worked in the small cell area for four years and drafted the enterprise femtocell specification for China Mobile, as well as co-leading the small cell project in the NGMN. He is heavily involved with the carrier's Nanocell project, which is focused on integrating small cells with Carrier Wi-Fi.
China Mobile already deployed about 4 million WLAN APs in the network, aiming at 6 million Aps in future. It also plans to deploy 200,000 LTE base station in 2013. Nanocell will play important roles in China Mobile network as a cost-effective broadband solution.
The webinar will offer a unique opportunity to gain details and insights into this important project, which will break new ground in LTE deployments, integrated small cells and Carrier Wi-Fi. Other topics will include small cell standards, the use of unpaired spectrum, and the future evolution of the HetNet.
