Published on

This is a presentation from Art King at the recent LTW World summit.
Art King is Director SpiderCloud Wireless, BOD Small Cell Forum (SCF) Board of Directors and Vice Chair, SCF Services Working Group

Key findings include:
- Small Cells deliver increased capacity and coverage in urban environments.
- Finding the right venue is critical to maximize the capacity advantages and cost savings for small cells.
- Leveraging and integrating HetNets delivers maximized user experience improvements.

  • The Small Cell Forum unequivocally believes the case for urban small cells to be a strong one.
    But small cells cannot meet growing user demand quickly and efficiently without practical and informed support and guidance.
    That is why our urban releases are so important.
    I believe small cells will have a pivotal role for operators in viable network densification — the development of HetNets that efficiently and cost-effectively combine macro and small cell rollout
  • As part of our Urban Market drivers paper we conducted a global study of carriers looking at drivers and barriers to urban deployment of small cells. These are the results……

    In case anyone asks: [sample size=40, over a third Asian – so not comprehensive, but large enough to be interesting]
  • So this is the story in a global context. But I wanted to dig down a little and see what our survey tells us about European and NA urban deployments of small cells…
  • I’m hear today to announce the launch of Release Four which completes the Small Cell Forum’s urban release.
    And this is my most important takeway – the url of our release site where you can download everything you need to know about deploying small cells in an urban context
  • But for me the big story in this release is the learnings from early deployments from major carriers in NA and Asia
    Diversity of scenarios - cities, airports and amusement parks
    Shows the value & context of the urban small cell solution
    Plenty more on the horizon – we’ll be adding to and updating these narratives in subsequent releases
  • The architecture framework identifies a number of domains, namely the access network domain, the backhaul domain, the ISW-core network domain and the mobile operator core network domain. Within each domain, a number of building blocks (or
    network functions) are identified, including: various types of access points (APs) and their characteristics, WLAN controllers (WLC), small cell gateways (SC-GW), and gateways for WLAN access to operator core networks (Wi-Fi-GW for CN Integration)
