MOSA Webinar: Small Cell Networks: Lessons Learned with AT&T (Slide Deck)
Exclusive webinar entitled 'Small Cell Networks: Lessons Learned', presented by Maravedis-Rethink and featuring our guest speaker Jim Parker, Senior Manager of the Antenna Solutions Group at AT&T, one of the world's most advanced deployers of small cells. Mr Parker's team is responsible for in-building solutions including small cells, DAS and others, and is a vital element of AT&T's ambitious plan to roll out 40,000 small cells over two years. The first phase of that roll-out is currently taking place, and the webinar will feature some of the earliest insights into the progress of the program, and the lessons learned so far. With operators round the world formulating their strategies for small cell deployments over the coming years, AT&T's experiences will be eagerly watched. The webinar will offer a unique opportunity to hear about the achievements and challenges so far, and to gain insights into AT&T's future plans in this important area of 3G and 4G roll-out. Topics include technology platforms for small cells; neutral hosting; the challenges of the indoor environment; and interworking with other technologies such as Wi-Fi, with an eye to the future HetNet. These insights are 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 deployment plans, among other topics. Meanwhile, the RAN Service tracks worldwide roll-outs of all types of carrier infrastructure, with granular five-year forecasts in areas including metrocells and DAS. In the webinar, Research Director Caroline Gabriel share selected highlights from the latest MOSA Quarterly Report and RAN forecasts, including exclusive data in areas such as enterprise wireless and LTE-Advanced.
