The brand new Small Cell World Summit (used to be the Femtocell World Summit) will be in a few week's time in London - I will be there and look forward to seeing you there if you plan to attend (you can get a 10% discount with the SCWSSENZ code).  The program is impressive and it is a nice chance to catch up with many small-cell aficionados.

Increase in capacity - and especially capacity density, i.e., capacity per sqmile - is the main driver to LTE rollouts. But to fully benefit from LTE performance (and ability to use a frequency reuse of 1), operators need to carefully manage interference to minimize its impact.

Could mobile operators planning to move to fiber backhaul meet their backhaul requirements in the short term and save money, by deploying wireless backhaul first and move to fiber later? Our model shows that over 10 years, operators can save up to 27% when deploying wireless first, and building a fiber network later.

What do mobile operators think about VoLTE? Operators like MetroPCS and Verizon have announced aggressive VoLTE plans, with MetroPCS planning to launch two to three VoLTE handsets before the end of 2012, and Verizon expecting to launch VoLTE by early 2013. But what are the views of the people that shape the strategy at mobile operators on VoLTE? We conducted a survey of mobile operators and this is what we found out.
