Improving 4G coverage and capacity indoors and at hotspots with LTE femtocells


3GPP placed another stepping-stone on the path to the all-IP network when it standardized the Evolved Packet System (EPS) with Rel-8. The advanced Evolved next generation Packet Core (EPC) provides the architectural underpinning. And the Long-Term Evolution (LTE) radio access network delivers powerful broadband performance, makes the most of radio resources, and cuts latency and per-bit costs. 3GPP formulated LTE to make mobile communication a more satisfying experience for users, driving demand for streaming, gaming, social networking, and other multimedia services. The LTE femtocell is a key ingredient.

Also called the Home Evolved Node B (HeNB), this low power, high-performance access device operates in licensed spectrum, providing low-cost coverage and capacity for small areas over public Internet backhaul. Usually deployed in homes and businesses, it can also cover hotspots indoors and out. FOR FURTHER INSIGHTS CONTINUE READING THIS WHITEPAPER FROM NSN.
