RAN Research Note: Stadium trials are proving grounds for new architectures
Until recently, large stadiums and venues either didn‟t support decent mobile services, or were the preserve of DAS. Now, they have become every vendor‟s favorite showcase for their most cutting edge solutions, a challenging yet fully controlled environment in which to hint to the world (and customers) what they might have up their sleeve for the next wave of wireless networks.
The RAN service covers issues affecting the radio access network - trends including macro cells, small cells, Cloud-RAN and carrier WiFi. The service provides in-depth RAN vendor profiles & SWOT Analysis as well as carrier expectations & trends. The service led by Caroline Gabriel, includes two comprehensive reports per year and research notes on important industry developments as well as analyst support.
