07/12/16 ‘Small Cells enable new commercial business models’ - Small Cell SIG Event – London
Several solutions are being promoted whereby LTE augments cellular service and extends or competes with traditional cellular network operators. These could radically disrupt the traditional cellular infrastructure industry by transferring investment and delegating some operational control to third parties. While some of the cellular industry focusses on technical advances of 5G, this expanded application of LTE is likely to impact more quickly and universally. With multiple technical options, it’s helpful to understand the trade-offs and timescales between them. Join us for this popular SIG Event curated by the Small Cell SIG Group and kindly hosted by EIP. Confirmed to speak are a speaker from EIP, Nick Johnson, CTO at ipAccess, Stephan Litjens, chairman of the Multefire Alliance and Federico Boccardi, principal, spectrum technology at Ofcom.
