Enterprise Small Cells

  1. 1. Enterprise  Small  Cells   David  Chambers   ThinkSmallCell   Title     Cambridge  Wireless   Small  Cell  SIG   London,  21  Jan  2014   ©  2014  ThinkSmallCell  Ltd.  
  2. 2. About  ThinkSmallCell   •  Founded  Sept  2007  as   ThinkFemtocell   •  Independent  news,   analysis,  insight  into   Small  Cells   •  Based  on  a  belief  that   small  cell  architecture   is  the  only  credible   soluMon  for  high  data   traffic   •  David  Chambers,   B.Sc.  (Hons),  MIET,   C.Eng,  Dip.  M.,   MCIM,  Chartered   Marketer   •  Career  includes   –  –  –  –  –  ©  2014  ThinkSmallCell  Ltd.   Telecom  soSware  engineer   Telecom  product  manager   Standards  (ETSI,  3GPP)   Chartered  Engineer   Chartered  Marketer   2  
  3. 3. Agenda   •  •  •  •  •  •  •  Scope  of  Enterprise  Small  Cells   Building  Size  vs  SoluMon  Fit   Radio  Technology   MulM-­‐Operator   Deployment  Cycle   Enterprise  Small  Cell  vendor  categories   More  informaMon   ©  2014  ThinkSmallCell  Ltd.

  5. 5. Differing  Scope  of  Small  Cell  Terms   Residen,al   Enterprise   All  non-­‐residenMal  buildings  including   Offices,  Hospitality,  Retail,  Campus     Mostly  for  voice  coverage,  not  data  capacity     Mostly  focused  on  3G   Urban   Rural   Outdoor  public  areas  with  some  in-­‐building   penetraMon     Mostly  for  data  capacity     Some  3G,  more  interest  for  4G   ©  2014  ThinkSmallCell  Ltd.   5  
  6. 6. Size  and  shape  of  UK  businesses   Number  of  companies   Total  employees   UK  VAT/PAYE  registered   businesses  at  start  2012   41%  of  total  employment   51%  of  total  turnover   6,000   250+  employees   9.7M   30,000   50-­‐249  employees   2.9M   178,000   4.6M   10-­‐49  employees   <9  employees   ©  2014  ThinkSmallCell  Ltd.   3.4M   7.7M   6

Different  sizes  require  soluMons   Distributed  Antenna  System   250+  employees   250+  employees   250+  employees   Group  of  small  cells  with  local   concentrator/gateway   50-­‐249  employees   50-­‐249  employees   MulMple  16  User  small  cells   10-­‐49  employees   <9  employees   ©  2014  ThinkSmallCell  Ltd.   16  User  Standalone  Small  cell   8  User  Standalone  Femtocell   7  
  8. 8. Typical  Enterprise  Small  Cells   •  Similar  to  residenMal  femtocells,  except   –  Higher  RF  power,  providing  wider  area  coverage   –  Higher  traffic  capacity,  typically  16  user   –  Powered  via  Ethernet  (PoE)   –  Wall  mounted,  usually  neutral  and  unobtrusive   ©  2014  ThinkSmallCell  Ltd.   8  
  9. 9. Cisco’s  Snap-­‐On  Upgrade   Cisco’s  USC  5310  “snap-­‐on”  for  Aeronet  3600  series     •  Upgrades  exisMng  Wi-­‐Fi  access  point  to  3G   –  Full  3G  small  cell,  8  user,  21  Mbps   –  Single  Ethernet  cable  powers  enMre  unit   –  Minimal  impact,  straighlorward  upgrade   –  Typically  only  needed  for  a  few  Wi-­‐Fi  hotspots   ©  2014  ThinkSmallCell  Ltd.

  12. 12. 3G  vs  LTE  vs  MulMmode   •  Today,  mostly  about  3G  for  voice   –  Matches  exisMng  smartphone  capabiliMes   –  4G  voice  (VoLTE)  not  yet  mainstream   –  RF  isolaMon  in-­‐building  reduces  concerns  about   interference  with  macrocells   •  4G/LTE  products  commercially  available   –  Widely  deployed  in  South  Korea   •  MulM-­‐mode  3G/LTE  product  by  2H  2014   –  Needs  next  generaMon  of  silicon  chipsets   –  Ideally  fits  within  Power  over  Ethernet  limits   ©  2014  ThinkSmallCell  Ltd.  
  13. 13. MulM-­‐Operator   •  Useful  for  BYOD,  COPE;  Important  for  venues   •  Different  ways  to  achieve  this   –  MulMple  Small  Cells,  one  per  network  operator   –  MulM-­‐band  MulM-­‐Operator  Small  Cells  (e.g.  MOCN)   –  NaMonal  Roaming   –  3rd  party  wholesale  using  own  spectrum  (e.g.  BT)   •  3G  vs  4G   •  Issues  with  some  older  3G  smartphones,  but   workarounds  exist   BYOD  =  Bring  Your  Own  Device   COPE  =  Corporate  Owned/Personally  Enabled   MOCN  =  Mul?ple  Operator  Core  Network   ©  2014  ThinkSmallCell  Ltd.
