Small cell for smaller sites delivers biggest performance boost
Smaller buildings and venues have the same mobile broadband coverage and capacity requirements as their larger counterparts. But, in these smaller locations, this must be achieved at lower cost. With hundreds of thousands of small cells and carrier Wi-Fi access points already shipped to leading operators around the world, Ericsson is now launching the RBS 6402, the first indoor picocell to deliver 300 Mbps LTE speeds.
As the first picocell to support LTE speeds of up to 300 Mbps with carrier aggregation, the RBS 6402 delivers twice the capacity and speed. It integrates LTE and 3G radio access with Wi-Fi using Ericsson’s industry-first Real-Time Traffic Steering to dynamically and seamlessly shift the mobile device connection between networks, delivering the best user experience and optimizing network resources. Plug-and-play installation using existing ethernet for power and connectivity and fast remote commissioning means the cells fully install and are network-live within 10 minutes.
