USA: Soaring demand for mobile data services is making small cell technologies the go-to solutions for expanding wireless capacity and coverage.
The massive interest is reflected in analyst predictions, most of which forecast the small cell market to more than quadruple by 2016, resulting in multi-billion dollar annual growth. Industry analysts predict that 4G small cell shipments will overtake 3G shipments by the end of the year.
Despite small cell’s bright future, many mobile operators, cable companies, OEMs, venue owners and other companies are still grappling with how to make it happen. Many small cell adopters simply don’t have the wherewithal to support a small cell initiative, from planning and design to deployment, maintenance and optimization. Meanwhile, other companies find that unexpected considerations can stall or even derail their entire project.
