When to deploy metro cells?

Small Cells World Summit 2012

When do operators think they will move to deploy metro cells, and how are they planning their metro cell rollouts?

Keith Dyer hosts a debate with representatives from Everything Everywhere, Telefonica UK, Telecom Italia, Disruptive Analysis and Alcatel-Lucent that asks the question: "When to deploy metro cells?"

In Part Two we hear how the panel thinks WiFi plays in all this (they don't agree) and about the options for backhaul. Finally, each speaker gives their individual answer to the question, "When to deploy metro cells?"


Part One sees the panel define the metro cell terminology, look at where metro cell solutions are needed and define the product requirements. The speakers also get into the nitty gritty of how to deploy metro cells, taking into account site acquisition and commerical considerations, as well as logistical hurdles.
