As more and more devices are connected both indoors and outdoors, operators are changing the way they think about (and use) small cell technology. Increased small cell deployments will create an evolution for operators working in densely populated areas.

Small cell solutions for better indoor coverage

Many businesses are adopting a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) office policy, where everyone wants excellent indoor connectivity, no matter the platform or operator.

However, research shows people are increasingly displeased with the quality of their coverage indoors.1 Small cells have the power to drastically improve customer satisfaction while delivering cost-effective multi-operator solutions.

Getting ready for IoT and 5G

As both industrial and consumer IoT grows, devices and machinery need constant, high speed connectivity, both indoors and outside. Small cells provide a cost-effective solution to deliver the connectivity needed for IoT applications. 

Operators must also prepare to deliver 5G. Small cells will allow existing networks to be densified quickly and easily, while delivering both licensed and unlicensed frequency bands.
