Brazilian providers of mobile telephony services have signed agreements with the management of the Itaquerao stadium in Sao Paulo and the Arena da Baixada in Curitiba for the deployment of indoor mobile coverage for spectators of men’s football World Cup matches. However, delays in releasing the stadia for the commencement of works will make it difficult to install the internal mobile telephony infrastructure. The indoor coverage will provide voice and data services using 2G, 3G and 4G technologies. To install the coverage, Claro, Oi, Nextel, Tim and Vivo partnered to for a single project, with shared infrastructure and investments. The total investment planned for the twelve stadia is BRL 200 million for the placement of indoor coverage.

Telenor has deployed Huawei LampSite indoor small cell solution to enhance in-building mobile network coverage in the company’s corporate headquarters in Oslo.

This will be an important milestone for significantly accelerating large-scale LTE development in Norway.

Earlier, the U.K. headquarters of Huawei also implemented the Huawei LampSite indoor small cell solution.

Huawei’s LampSite solution provides targeted indoor coverage performance enhancements to provide a better mobile broadband experience, increase business productivity for enterprises, and cultivate development of new data services and new subscribers.

The solution is designed to be more scalable, flexible, as well as easier to deploy and manage compared to traditional distributed antenna system (DAS) solutions.

The LampSite system provides comprehensive in-building mobile network coverage with an array of small ceiling-mounted radio access units (pico Remote Radio Units or “pRRU”) installed on every floor of an office building.

The solution supports multiple modes and bands, multiple-input multiple output (MIMO) transmissions, and provides higher spectrum efficiency to realize a seamless service experience indoors and outdoors. The result for operators is long-term gains with a one-time site deployment and investment.

Small cells boost ultra-broadband coverage in both indoor and outdoor locations to deliver high quality service to subscribers

Alcatel-Lucent today announced the deployment of its small cell solutions in the Verizon Wireless network. The Alcatel-Lucent small cells are being deployed in indoor and outdoor locations to help ensure subscribers have the LTE coverage and capacity they demand at popular outdoor venues and in dense metropolitan areas.

Small cells are a critical component of LTE ultra-broadband deployments as they enable operators to boost coverage and capacity in busy areas such as shopping malls, sports stadiums and high-traffic areas. By bringing the connection closer to the end user, small cells assure an exceptional mobile ultra-broadband experience including enriched multimedia services wherever consumers are located.

Verizon Wireless’ deployment of Alcatel-Lucent’s small cells solution is a primary example of an industry transformation in network architecture that will include large scale integration of small cells as part of a heterogeneous network (Hetnet).
