Telecoms.com: Lay your bets – Prediction #3
Bengt Nordstrom, founder of industry consultancy NorthStream, shares his predictions for the mobile industry in 2013.
#3 – The ‘small cell debate’ is ended by LTE roll-out (with some support from WiFi)
Global LTE rollouts have sparked discussion about the rapid take up of small cells to extend high speed data coverage to public venues, enterprises and homes. However, Northstream believes that LTE roll-out will actually result in operators requiring less small cells than before.
