Ixia Webinar: Essential Steps to Successful HetNet Deployments

March 11, 2014 by Ixia Blog Team

Mobile traffic continues to grow exponentially as smartphone usage and video-based applications are on the rise. With subscribers demanding better, faster, more media-rich services, mobile operators must find cost-effective new ways to increase coverage and capacity in high-growth areas. HetNets use “small cells” and carrier Wi-Fi to supplement high-cost base stations and achieve a powerful mix of practical and economic advantages.

With HetNets, thousands of intelligent devices may be deployed on lampposts, at public venues, in buildings, and other new locations. Small Cells, Big Challenge gives operators a unique resource for understanding and conquering HetNet deployment issues—scalability, interference, mobility, security—to deliver a high-quality customer experience.

HetNets represent a major paradigm shift in mobile network designs, and set the stage to add network capacity and enhance performance. But HetNet technology is far from proven, and is filled with challenges. With significant revenue and brand reputations at stake, operators need to get it right the first time.

  • The market dynamics driving the need for HetNets
