Ubiquitous, high speed mobile broadband is proven to have a significant impact on a country’s economic competitiveness and social prosperity. For instance, a 10% expansion in mobile penetration increases productivity by 4.2 percentage points, according to one report.
As traffic levels rise, and as more industries and cities become always-connected, the mobile networks will have to be designed in a new way. Notably, they will involve very large numbers of small cell base stations, which can deliver massive broadband capacity in urban areas and reach every corner of the country too.
This white paper, co-produced by 5G Americas and Small Cell Forum, outlines the ways in which these stakeholders can cooperate to fulfil the maximum potential of small cells. It also aims to raise awareness among the stakeholders, ranging from equipment producers, operators, integrators, policy makers, and local administrations, that are involved in the approval, acceptance and roll out of the small cells layers of the mobile networks.
