Small cell siting: regulatory and deployment considerations
The regulatory implications of hyperdense deployment are a critical issue for our industry. The successful delivery of dense HetNets depends on the collaboration of a large number of stakeholders – regulators, administrations, municipal authorities, site owners, operators and vendors. This document aims to outline the ways in which these stakeholders can cooperate to fulfil the maximum potential of small cells. It also aims to raise awareness among the stakeholders, ranging from equipment producers, operators, integrators, policy makers, and local administrations, that are involved in the approval, acceptance and roll out of the small cells layers of the mobile networks.
