Single Channel Architecture 1 Single Channel Architecture • The single channel architecture removes the co-channel interference problem inherent in microcell architectures. • Only one channel for coverage, microcell needs more. • Use more channels for scalability of user devices and bandwidth (channel layering)

Virtualised doesn’t •Cost savings for coverage •Virtualised supports 40Mhz in 2.4Ghz therefore devices can run faster where compatible with 40Mhz 1.5 x 802.11n Channels 3 x 802.11n 20Mhz Channels

Virtual Cell • When new device arrives • The system creates a virtual access point for the device – with its own BSSID • And assigns it to the radio with the strongest signal • When the device moves so that the signal is better from another radio • The virtual access point is moved • The system chooses the best AP Optimum performance is maintained • In a virtualised network …. Think of the APs as radios

Thank You Power and space challenges are still the same • Don’t expect more than 3 data streams soon (-) • Higher rates available at ranges closer to the AP (-) • Higher throughput efficiency mean less time (power) spent for transmit (+) • Users will still observe greater net throughput (+) Rate & Range
