ip.access Addresses Indoor Coverage Challenges at Small Cells Americas
London, UK – 27th October 2016 – As in-building coverage continues to be a major headache for the mobile industry, ip.access, a Mavenir company since September 2020, is partnering with Expeto, Pavlov Media and Única to host an interactive workshop at Small Cells Americas, Fairmont Dallas, Texas, next Monday 31st October 2016. The workshop will discuss the true cost and opportunities behind the deployment of neutral host small cells today.
Nick Johnson, CTO, ip.access, commented: “The demand for multi-operator solutions is a disruptive force for the mobile industry, and one that operators are struggling to deal with effectively. ip.access recognisesthat the key to squaring this circle lies in shared infrastructure and spectrum and completely overhauling the deployment model for small cells.
“Customer demand for reliable indoor coverage is only going to increase. With severe business implications at stake, this trend can no longer be ignored. Our workshop will demonstrate just how neutral host small cells can open up a host of new commercial opportunities for operators, easing the pain of deployment and offering a cost-effective way to capitalise on the value of licensed spectrum assets.”
ip.access’ Viper platform is an integrated, multi-operator solution that simplifies small cell deployments to the extent that businesses can deploy their own coverage, addressing a key customer need. At the same time, Viper also significantly reduces the capital and operational expenses for operators by allowing them to share both spectrum and infrastructure without losing control of the capacity or quality they can offer their customers.
There is tremendous value in in shared access spectrum approaches and Viper has been designed with all shared access models in mind, including CBRS. For example, Viper can help operators fill under-used spectrum or enable tower-sharing companies increase their value-add by sharing the base station and the spectrum as well as the tower. Ultimately Viper adds a competitive edge to the benefit of consumers, enterprises and mobile operators everywhere.
The workshop, Cost vs. opportunity: Real world use case for small cell neutral host, will take place on 31st October, the first day of Small Cells Americas. To register for the event, click here.
