Objective The objective of this lecture is to provide an overview over the challenges of providing coverage and capacity when conventional macro-cells are unavailable or not feasible. The lecture will explain
  • What small cells are and what concepts exists
  • What we mean with NetNets
  • The supporting network architecture for the different small cell concepts

Understand the Mobile Broadband technologies

Learning outcomes Having joined this lecture, you will
  • understand the challenges of indoor coverage and capacity
  • understand the principle of Femto Cells
  • be able to explain the effect of increased network capacity when the macro network is supported by indoor base stations.

Understand following mobile technologies

  • HSPA/HSPA Evolution
  • LTE and LTE Advanced
  • Voice over LTE
  • Self Organizing Network
