Enterprise small cell architecture webinar


Published on

Amit Jain, VP Product Management at Spidercloud, explains the various small cell alternatives for enterprise small cells suitable for SOHO, SME and larger businesses. He argues that as the number of enterprise femtocells/small cells increase, more local control is required. Various solutions from individual small cells (femtocells) through to large scale DAS (Distributed Antenna Systems) all have a place to play.

  6. 6. Enterprise Small Cell Market Enterprise customers constitute 15% of subscribers, 30% of revenues Small cells expected to be 18% of RAN cap-ex by 2016, 50% for enterprise (Goldman Sachs, September, 2012)© 2012 SpiderCloud Wireless, Inc.

  8. 8. Seven Considerations for Designing an Enterprise RAN with Small Cells 1. Seamless mobility 2. Consistently high throughput 3. Enterprise-centered management 4. Self-organizing and rapidly deployable 5. Efficient use of backhaul 6. Local switching of voice and data traffic 7. Scalable – from small business to campuses 8© 2012 SpiderCloud Wireless, Inc.
  9. 9. Two Architectural Approaches 1. Using Core Network Based Controller: three variants 1. Enterprise femtocells with hard handover 2. Enterprise femtocells with soft handover 3. Pico cells with soft handover 2. Using a Local controller in the Enterprise 9© 2012 SpiderCloud Wireless, Inc.
  10. 10. Enterprise Femtocell with Hard Handover Viable for few small cells in an enterprise if end user is willing to tolerate call drops and does not need consistent throughput. Locally switched voice/data calls drop if user moves from one enterprise femtocell to another. 10© 2012 SpiderCloud Wireless, Inc.
  11. 11. Enterprise Femtocells with Soft Handover Support soft handover to offer seamless mobility and consistent throughput but requires more processing power per small cell and more backhaul bandwidth. Local switched voice/data calls drop during handover. Scalability unknown because this architecture has not been deployed. 11© 2012 SpiderCloud Wireless, Inc.
  12. 12. Pico cells with RNC in the Core Enterprise pico cells use soft handover to offer seamless mobility and interference coordination. However, this architecture does not scale because it places very stringent requirements on backhaul and does not allow SON. Local switching is not possible because the RNC is in the core. 12© 2012 SpiderCloud Wireless, Inc.
  13. 13. Small Cells with Local Controller in Enterprise Offers seamless mobility and interference management using soft handover, optimizes backhaul utilization, enables local switching of voice and data, and provides enterprise- centered management. Self-organizing features make it possible to offer service in very large enterprises in weeks, not months. 13© 2012 SpiderCloud Wireless, Inc.
