At least good news for telecom engineers and the industry which has strong down turn these days.

The idea that a lot of small cells could be used instead of a macrocell is interesting to me. Obviously this would create huge network management challenges. But it could really change the scale of investment required to expand coverage.

You are correct. Overcoming dropped calls in most congested areas could be solved by this approach

Small Cells is a great concept, and is being employed in different way till today with Passive approach. This passive approach loads the base station and creates possibilities of networking jamming mainly working as a repeater. Active small cells will really add to the reach of the base stations in terms of cost and space savings.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
