With proliferation of micro and picocell base station installations, wireless millimeter wave radios are being used to solve backhaul connectivity challenges. As carriers continue to roll out LTE networks to meet the overwhelming demand...
Mobile device manufacturers are churning out products that can squeeze more and more bits per hertz from the spectrum, and consumers are buying them by the millions, often resulting in overloaded networks and sluggish or interrupted service.
The explosion in wireless data services has been well documented in the last year. Several operators have been lambasted publicly because popular smartphones and data-intensive applications are exposing capacity bottlenecks in large metropolitan markets.
ABI Research and Dell'Oro both recently released reports predicting that the femtocell market will pass 1 million shipments in 2010, and both houses say the market will exceed 60 million deployments by 2014. —So what's triggered the turn around?
Today, picocells have come a long, long way. They’re deployed by mobile operators all over the world as a fast, cost-effective solution to a wide range of coverage and capacity problems.
