outdoor small cells

It may be early days for outdoor small cell development, but the demand has been there for quite some time. And, in the future, the demand will only continue to grow as beefier public and business devices become accustomed to the additional support that they bring. We can expect small cells to become a  more ubiquitous part of the device ecosystem.

Color my cynical, but each year has been "this is the year for the small cell" [insert femtocell or picocell] for at least the last five years. Looking forward to seeing what happens...

I have similar feeling Jennifer...hardware cost is low but is installation cost low as well?

The original femtocell value proposition - the mobile subscriber pays to buy and install the femtocell at her home and also provides the backhaul using her ISP, to get better cell coverage that she's already paying for, is a bit flawed and it's not surprising that femtocells haven't taken the world by storm.

That said, smaller cells, and lots of them, will be needed to provide quality of service in densely populated environments. But carriers will probably have make the initial investment to pay for them.

Carriers will likely start in building such as offices in cities. Over time, we may see small cells in homes. I actually have one from AT&T but never used it.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
