Small Cell, Building Crowdsourcing Ecosystem

Mobile data traffic is experiencing an exponential growth, driven by data capable devices and high bandwidth applications (APPs). 80% of data traffic is generated from hotspots and indoor locations. 

Small Cell is an important element that forms coordinated HetNet in indoor and outdoor hotspots and coverage holes to seamlessly increase network capacity. It opens up new business models like crowdsourcing, significantly improves network quality and user experience, and sustains continuous profitability for both operators and enterprises.
