People want to be able to use their smartphones, laptops, tablets and other devices everywhere, and so they need access to 3G, 4G and Wi-Fi. Now that mobile broadband and mobile multimedia services are so popular, subscribers are beginning to expect broadband access to be available wherever they go – not just at home or in the office. People want to be able to connect from their cars, on the train, in aircraft, from remote locations, in the urban jungle and even from areas where it is difficult to provide access, such as in mines, tough terrain or subway tunnels.
LTE is rapidly emerging as the world’s most dominant 4G technology, taking mobile broadband to unprecedented performance levels. To meet expectations and predictions for even higher data rates and traffic capacity – beyond what is available in current LTE networks – a densified infrastructure is needed. There are two different approaches to heterogeneous deploy¬ment – resource partitioning and soft-cell schemes – both of which provide support for excessive range expansion.
