Small Cells deliver cost-effective capacity and coverage, indoors and outdoors
As data traffic rises and the risk of congestion grows, supplementing macro networks with small cells is an effective way to provide capacity for indoors and outdoors, as well as for enterprises.

Yet it can be challenging to deal with the higher control traffic, interference between the macro and small cell networks and backhaul bottlenecks that HetNets will bring.
HetNets are also far more complex than traditional macro networks, so automating many of the conventional manual control and network optimization processes will be essential.
Nokia’s comprehensive range of products and services can help you to meet these challenges and make the most of the opportunities of small cells.
