MOSA Webinar recording: Carrier Wi-Fi Meets Small Cells with China Mobile- October 29, 2013
This exclusive webinar entitled 'Carrier Wi-Fi Meets Small Cells', was presented by Maravedis-Rethink and Mr Tao Sun, Program Manager for Network Technology at China Mobile, the world's largest mobile operator, which has an ambitious program for TD-LTE, small cell and Wi-Fi deployment.
China Mobile already deployed about 4 million WLAN APs in the network, aiming at 6 million Aps in future. It also plans to deploy 200,000 LTE base station in 2013. Nanocell will play important roles in China Mobile network as a cost-effective broadband solution.
The webinar offered a unique opportunity to gain details and insights into this important project, which will break new ground in LTE deployments, integrated small cells and Carrier Wi-Fi. Other topics discussed during the webinar include small cell standards, the use of unpaired spectrum, and the future evolution of the HetNet.
These insights were complemented by key findings from Maravedis-Rethink's MOSA (Mobile Operator Strategy Analysis) and RAN Service analysts. MOSA tracks the top 100 4G operators and their business strategies, and has a per-carrier analysis of small cell and Carrier Wi-Fi deployment plans, among other topics. Maravedis-Rethink RAN Service tracks worldwide roll-outs of all types of carrier infrastructure, with granular five-year forecasts in areas including metrocells, Wi-Fi and the macro layer.
In the webinar, Maravedis-Rethink Research Director Caroline Gabriel shared selected highlights from the latest MOSA and RAN forecasts, including exclusive data in areas such as Carrier Wi-Fi intentions, the emergence of multimode small cells, and LTE-Advanced implementation.
