‘Stretching the Limits’ - Small Cell SIG event

The Small Cell paradigm has long shifted from coverage to capacity and offloading. The industry has now started using the term hyper-dense networks to highlight that in specific traffic hotspots, the capacity requirement can be as much as 1,000 times today’s peak throughput. The forward thinkers within today’s Mobile Network Operators need to determine how best to increase the capacity density of their networks, meeting demand for ever more Mbps per square metre per Hz in the most congested areas. Is this best satisfied by extending traditional methods, widespread deployment of small cells, offloading to Wi-Fi or a combination of all three? This Small Cell event examines different approaches and evaluates the limits, constraints and benefits of each. A formidable line-up of industry speakers will explain and evaluate the available options and look at practical issues of deployment. An interactive panel session enables lively participation with the audience. Speakers confirmed include <I><b>Mike Lawton</b></i> of <I><b>Agilent Technologies</b></I>, <I><b>Atul Roy</b></I> of <I><b>EE</b></I>, <I><b>Jouni Korhonen</b></I> of <I><b>Broadcom</b></I>, <I><b>Caroline Gabriel</b></I> of <I><b>Rethink Technology Research</b></I>, <b><I>Justin Paul</I></b> of <b><I>Amdocs</I></b> and <b><I>Neil Coleman</I></b> of <b><I>Amdocs Radio Access Network Division</I></b>. All delegates are invited to stay after the event to attend the drinks reception, which precedes the renowned Founders’ Dinner.

About the event

The forward thinkers within today’s Mobile Network Operators need to determine how best to increase the capacity density of their networks, meeting demand for ever more Mbps per square metre per Hz in the most congested areas of the 800Mhz to 5GHz bands.

Is this best satisfied by extending traditional methods, widespread deployment of small cells, offloading to Wi-Fi or a combination of all three?

This Small Cell SIG event examines the different approaches, and evaluates the limits, constraints and benefits of each.

Speakers include:

  • Caroline Gabriel, Research Director of Rethink Technology Research
  • Mike Lawton, Product Planning Engineer, Mobile Broadband Operation, Agilent Technologies
  • Atul Roy, Network Strategy Manager, EE
  • Jouni Korhonen, Technical Director, Broadcom
  • Justin Paul, Head of OSS Marketing, Amdocs and Neil Coleman, Marketing Manager, Amdocs Radio Access Network Division

The Small Cell SIG is championed by David Chambers of ThinkSmallCell, Zahid Ghadialy of eXplanoTech, Simon Saunders of Real Wireless, Simon Fletcher of NEC Telcom MODUS and Paul Kenworthy of Ranplan. We are also extremely grateful to Microlease / Agilent for sponsoring this event.
