The transition from passive DAS to active DAS
In this paper, we compare two solutions available to mobile operators – passive DAS and active DAS – and discuss how they relate to traffic and capacity requirements, venue topologies, and manageability.
C-RAN survey: tell us what you think
In preparation for the C-RAN Working Group that I will be leading as part of RAN World conference in Cologne from September 29-30, I would like to ask you to fill in this survey.
LTE unlicensed: coexist or perish
LTE unlicensed is clearly a hot topic these days – and one that often draws a strong emotional response. It was one of the key themes in London at the Small Cell World Summit in early June and at the Carrier Wi-Fi World Summit. The consultation from the FCC also attracted a wide set of contrib...
New report LTE unlicensed and Wi-Fi: moving beyond coexistence

Download the report 

Our latest report explores the opportunities that LTE unlicensed offers to mobile operators and how the technology can moving into the 5 GHz band where Wi-Fi dominates and has been an astounding success. Is the performance – and business case – of LTE unlicensed sufficiently better that mobile operators will be willing to roll out LTE unlicensed even though it will require new mobile devices? And what will the 5 GHz ecosystem, dominated by Wi-Fi users, enterprise, and service providers, will accept as fair coexistence from the LTE unlicensed proponents?

The report includes in-depth interviews with Alcatel-Lucent, InterDigital, Ooredoo, Qualcomm Technologies, Ruckus Wireless, Tele2, Wi-Fi Alliance, XCellAir.
