The company behind SK Telecom's LTE small cell rollout

Small Cells World Summit 2012

"In Korea the LTE market is crazy..."

Contela is supporting SK Telecom's LTE rollout with public access small cells, having already deployed more than 10,000 public access data femtocells, making it one of the most advanced rollouts globally. The company has designed software that allows its products to be co-ordinated with Samsung's macro layer equipment and to co-ordinate resource management within the small cell layer.

"Now we're just doing this with Samsung only, but the plan is to expand to other vendors (NSN and Ericsson)," CMO Jang Ahn Kwon tells us. For more on how the industry can meet interference and co-ordination issues in the small cell layer, see our interview with ip.access' Nick Johnson.
