As mobile data traffic continues to grow and outpace mobile network capacity, densification of the mobile network is one solution available to network operators to increase capacity. Small cells, or small wireless facilities, are another tool in the mobile operator tool kit to address the data demand as mobile traffic rapidly shifts to HD video content.

The traditional macro site distributed radio access network (D-RAN) architecture for mobile networks is evolving towards a hybrid combination of fiber-based fronthaul centralized radio access network (C-RAN) architecture using low power small radios coupled with D-RAN macro sites, and stand alone small cells.

These small cells are typically installed on authority or wireless utility poles and aerial cable strands.

The availability of Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) spectrum within the United States, coupled with Licensed Assisted Access (LAA) usage within the WiFi 5GHz spectrum will drive the development of small and micro wireless facilities within the United States.

The evolution to 5G technology will also increase mobile network densification and accelerate the deployment of small cells in the United States.

The outdoor small cell series of research reports focuses on the following topics:

  • United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Rulemaking
  • United States Federal/State Level Legislation and Rulemaking
  • United States Metro Market Legislation/Deployments
  • Small Cell Antennas
  • Small Wireless Facilities
  • Micro Wireless Facilities
