Femtocells - Natural solution for offload

Femto Forum

Mobile data is increasing at a compound annual rate of 108% as a result of an increasing level of penetration of data-intensive devices (smart phones, broadbandenabled laptops, and other devices) and an increasing level of usage per device.

Interestingly, a large portion of all macro-cellular traffic originates in one of two largely controllable environments: the home and the office.

While operators have historically been innovative and successful in expanding network capacity, the current rate of growth in demand is unprecedented.

This white paper details how femtocells significantly increase mobile network capacity and efficiency while also lowering operators’ costs and providing an improved user experience for both indoor and outdoor users.

The paper also reveals that one indoor mobile user uses the same capacity as ten outdoor users therefore making offload critical to resolving the capacity challenge.
