Lack of sufficient sites hinders macro base stations from providing continuous coverage in outdoor areas. The Outdoor Crowdsourcing Small Cell solution facilitates site acquisition by leveraging lamp posts, bus stop signs, billboards, and phone booths. This solution is particularly applicable to central business districts, old resident buildings, suburbs, and other areas where site acquisition or coverage by macro base stations is difficult. Apart from added deployment flexibility and reduced site rental costs, this solution facilitates coordination between micro and macro networks, thereby improving network performance and enhancing outdoor MBB competitiveness.
