  28. 28. What are Small Cells? Small cells are low-power wireless access points that provide improved cellular coverage and capacity for homes, enterprises, and metropolitan and rural public spaces. They range from femtocells (the smallest) to microcells (the largest).

  29. 29. When are Small Cells Practical? Provide coverage to whitespace buildings or floors (smaller footprint, tight CapEx) Address UMTS (future LTE/Wi-Fi) coverage issues reflected in CIQ data or enterprise customer complaints Small Cells Relieve capacity demand in-building in spectrum constrained markets Provide easily deployable temporary capacity or coverage for specific events 30 © 2013 AT&T Intellectual Property.

  30. 30. Comparing In-Building Solution options Repeaters* Repeaters (also called BDA or bi-directional amplifier) are used in small (<100K sq. ft) venues to expand coverage. A repeater uses a rooftop antenna draw capacity from a nearby macro cell site as the RF source and rebroadcasts the signal throughout the facility. Donor cell site capacity is shared with external traffic and is not dedicated to the venue. DAS antennas and splitters provide coverage to various locations inside the building from the input of the BDA. Base Transceiver Station (BTS) The Macro BTS is the RF source primarily used in the macro network. For in-building applications, BTS are expensive and require dedicated backhaul, but offer a coverage & capacity solution that can support a large number of users over a wide area. Distributed Antenna System (DAS) The DAS distributes the RF signal across antennas that are installed throughout the facility. A Small Cell, BDA or BTS can be used as the RF source for the DAS. Primarily used to modify, improve or extend coverage of a site. Primarily used in large buildings, stadiums, public spaces, airports, enterprise & outdoor environments with strict zoning, etc. Small Cells Low-powered radio access points (less than 1 Watt) that improve indoor and outdoor coverage to increase capacity and offload traffic. Deployments have been underway since the beginning of this year. Femtocells Femtocells are small personal BTS providing service over a limited area (5K sq. ft) to a limited number of users (4~20). Primarily used in small office / home office or residential areas. 31 © 2012 AT&T Intellectual Property. All rights reserved.

  40. 40. Small Cells – First Customer Deployments (Indoor 3G) for your office Multiple Enterprise Customers, New York City, NY: Indoor Coverage & Capacity Solution: Ex. 20 Small Cells: 4 per floor x 5 floors “The Metrocell is working very well, we’ve seen significant improvements with data connection and speed which was our biggest issue before installation. Voice also seems to be working well.” “The individuals within the office have seen a stronger signal and are able to make and receive calls in areas that they couldn’t before.” “The new system seems to be working – my primary benchmark is whether or not I experience dropped calls …. I am not. In the past I received a voice mail notice but the phone never rang to give me an opportunity to answer it. Now all calls are coming through.” 41 © 2013 AT&T Intellectual Property.
