re: Cisco to buy small-cell pioneer for $300 million

Let's not forget that Cisco bought and later sold Linksys. The real deal here is the integration of business and absorption of the profit made on Small Cell side of equipment. I do not think this is a big move, just a natural absorption of a provider into an integrated Cisco solution that provides to enterprises the WLAN and now LTE. The small cell market for equipment/solution providers is so fragmented that the gross margin will soon be reduced to modest values.

Funny how these recent topics intersect. IMO, small cells are the future of cellular communications, because I don't see anything but expansion in portable wireless. And small cells can scale up wireless access, to meet the demand, a lot more credibly than adding a few MHz of channel space to large cells. From Motorola to Cisco. Very interesting. Given how so much Internet access has been migrating from wired to wireless, and given how Cisco has shown interest in more than just providing the "big iron" for core and enterprise networks, this move makes a lot of sense. All the best!

It makes sense for this little would-be disrupter of the Ericssons, Huaweis, Nokia Siemens Networks and AlcaLus would get snapped up by a Cisco that has a big service provider business but nothing much in base stations, let alone small cells.
