  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

  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

  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.
