- Reduce capital expenditures by maximizing frequency reuse opportunities without costly spectrum and cell site splits
- Reduce backhaul and operation costs by leveraging the IP infrastructure capabilities
- Improve customer satisfaction with ubiquitous and consistent coverage
The recent increase in data usage has over-extended the coverage and capacity of the macro network and led to blind spots and coverage gaps, particularly in areas located furthest from the macro cell towers and areas where people congregate. If not resolved, the lack of seamless connectivity in these areas will become a source of customer dissatisfaction and could lead to churn.
Local small cells can solve coverage gaps and blind spots by providing service in specific locations that are unreachable by the existing macro infrastructure. This affordable and easy to deploy IP-based solution is ideal for complementing the macro network.
