Small Cells and Carrier Wi-Fi

A newer version of this research is available.

Please refer to Outdoor Small Cell Forecast to ensure you are viewing the latest forecasts.

This database forecasts the outdoor small cell market. Outdoor small cells are categorized into less than 1 W, 1 W to 5 W, and 5 W to 10 W and into picocell, femtocell, and microcell. These solutions are typically deployed outdoors on lamp posts, telephone booths, or even rooftops. Outdoor solutions are mostly needed to provide mobile broadband capacity that complements a macrocell. Outdoor small cells are also used as the primary coverage and capacity solution in rural areas that are hard to reach with macrocells. Outdoor small cells typically have weatherproof hardened enclosures and additional bit security and backhaul options not found on indoor femtocells or picocells. There are a variety of backhaul options being considered for outdoor small cells including fiber, copper, NLOS sub 6 GHz, LOS 6-38 GHz, E-band, WiMAX, Wi-Fi, and in-band LTE. Carrier-integrated Wi-Fi has been included in this forecast database as an alternative and complementary small cell class. Mobile operators are looking at alternative options to relieve congestion in their mobile networks and industry bodies like the Wi-Fi Alliance and the Wireless Broadband Alliance are standardizing Hotspot 2.0 and NGH which are specifically tailored for carrier-integrated Wi-Fi, allowing carriers to treat Wi-Fi as a part of their current network footprint. The database forecasts outdoor small cells by region, technology, output power, and by location (urban, suburban, and rural).
