Small Cell Forum

Small Cell Forum News Round-Up November 2015

Small Cells Americas in Dallas kicked off a busy month for the small cells industry, with a series of announcements that illustrate an industry poised for scale in residential, enterprise and urban deployments. Small Cell Forum also published its latest report, Crossing the Chasm, which reflected the same trend, for small cells to be deployed in increasingly large numbers.

Later in the month, two US operators – Cox Communications and T-Mobile USA – announced plans to expand small cell networks for important business models; while in Los Angeles, the city is deploying a new kind of 'smart lamp post' integrating an Ericsson small cell with a smart lighting unit from Philips. TMO’s roll-out of free residential small cells, is a win for Alcatel-Lucent, which also started shipment of its Multimode 3G/4G/VoLTE cells, co-developed with Qualcomm.

Of course, the biggest news in the wireless industry this month has been the extensive alliance between Ericsson and Cisco. The implications for the small cell sector remain to be seen, but both companies are active in the space, and between them will be able to offer a broad portfolio of approaches.
