Small Cell/oDAS

Small Cells are the most recent evolution of wireless radio technology. Small cells are low-powered radio access nodes that have a range of 10 meters to 1 or 2 kilometers. They are “small” compared to a mobile macrocell, which may have a range of 1-30 km. Whereas legacy macro cellular networks may cover a broader coverage area in a radius of several miles, Small Cells can better serve high traffic areas and ensure true mobile broadband capacity to address the needs of today’s data-intensive users. Small cells allow the mobile network to improve in both coverage and capacity, which is instrumental in meeting the anticipated exponential data usage growth. Due to the required density and critical placement of small cells, small form-factor, low power usage, alleviated aesthetic concerns and carrier-class performance are just some of the key attributes that make small cells an optimal solution to address network densification needs. Small cells have lower output power and radiation centers that are closer to the ground, meaning that they are less prone to interference. They also utilize smaller form-factor equipment which blend in better with the surroundings and can be discreetly placed on utility/telephone poles, street lamps or traffic signal poles.
