Small Cell Deployment Costs

Mobile operators are evolving their networks to small cells and het-nets. Long accustomed to capital-intensive macrocell networks, the key question everyone is asking is: How much will it cost to roll out small cells? The first in a new series of FREE webinars will overview iGR’s small cell deployment cost model, which is based on small cell locations, including new poles, existing poles, building walls and building roofs; small cell type; backhaul type (fiber or microwave); backhaul speed; labor and installation; and power and ancillary costs for other equipment.

The Impact of Virtualization on Wireless Infrastructure

With Mobile Network Virtualization, the network functions and processes are created using off-the-shelf hardware and then deployed in a data center, on the tower or in another suitable location. The architecture – and associated costs of building and running networks – changes significantly. This webinar will discuss the benefits of EPC, RAN and data center virtualization, including increased core capacity and more flexible cRAN, as well as the ability to differentiate services for specific types of customers.
