mmWave fixed wireless access network costs and where it makes sense to build - November 2018

5G Fixed Wireless access services targeted at residences and small businesses are nearly upon us; the first of the new 5G mmWave services are promised by the end of 2018. But engineering these systems is a complicated affair with many limitations and restrictions: weather considerations; line of sight connectivity; CPE installation; and many others. These limitations impact the cost to deploy mmWave and areas in which deployment is actually feasible.

This webinar explores:

  • How a mmWave FWA solution is architected and deployed
  • The elements that contribute to the cost of mmWave fixed wireless solutions
  • The economics of mmWave FWA compared to other broadband solutions
  • Where mmWave solutions can economically be deployed
  • The realistic addressable market for mmWave FWA

The New In-building Wireless Business Models - October 2018

In the old days (5 years ago!), the in-building business model was simple - the mobile operators saw the need to build a system in a building, got an agreement with the building owner, put up the capital and built a system, usually DAS. This worked especially well in large stadiums, conference centers, etc. where large numbers of mobile subscribers congregated and hence needed service. In a stadium that was branded by a major mobile operator, it was seen as imperative to actually have service!

This all changed a few years ago when the mobile operators stopped putting large amounts of capital into in-building wireless systems. Today, new business models have emerged that marry a building owner with neutral host networks to which the mobile operators can connect. In essence, the building of IBW has been outsourced to the third parties. This webinar examines this trend and:

  • The profile of the ideal commercial building for a successful IBW deployment
  • The role of the third party in building IBW solutions
  • Successful business models for IBW deployments
  • The outlook for the commercial building market for IBW

When - and how - can we make money from 5G? - September 2018

5G networks are coming - quickly. The first few networks - in a few markets - will be deployed toward the end of 2018 in the U.S. And other markets are moving forward, notably in Asia Pacific and parts of Europe. But many questions are still being asked about the potential revenues from the various 5G services and if, in fact, mobile operators can really make money from 5G.

This webinar examines:

  • The cost of building out 5G across the world
  • The potential revenues from 5G in the various regions
  • If, and when, the MNOs can recover their 5G investment
  • The drivers of economic success for 5G - what has to happen for 5G to be truly successful?

Small Cell Update, Drivers and Trends: 5G Densification - October 2017

5G networks need more cells. ’Densification' is the latest wireless infrastructure buzz word the operators like to throw around at investor meetings. This essentially means 'more cells and antennas on poles and roofs' and smaller cells. But deploying small cells is not easy, and significant challenges exist both inside buildings and outdoors. This webinar will review iGR’s latest small cell research and answers:

  • What are the major drivers for deploying small cells indoor and outdoor?
  • What are the major inhibitors to small cell deployment?
  • What role do small cells play in 5G network deployments?
  • And how will the market develop in the next few years?

Addressing Small Cell Issues: Size and RF Performance - June 2017

In order to deploy 5G, the next generation of mobile network architectures that promises increasing speeds and lower latency, the network must be densified. Densification implies more cell sites in more locations, getting the signal closer to the users. This means more small cells; there is simply no choice other than to put more radios into the network. The problems with deploying small cells are well known in the wireless industry: Location, Backhaul, Power, and Spectrum.

RF performance is also critical; the small cell is part of a larger network and must perform on an equal footing. Good RF performance, low PIM and good isolation must be maintained in the small cell architecture; the demands of 5G and the ability to meet the industry goals for 5G depend on it.

This webinar, with guest speakers from Microlab, discusses the challenges of obtaining good RF performance AND small size in small cell installations. The webinar addresses:

  • Physical challenges of designing small cells
  • Multi-band multi-operator small cell installations
  • Small cell RF combining solutions
  • Balancing small component size and RF performance
  • How Microlab developed components that offer small physical size and excellent RF performance.

Improving In-building Mobile Coverage with Signal Boosters: Integrating with the Het-Net - July 2016

The Het-Net (heterogeneous network) is now a standard part of the mobile operators' arsenal of weapons to deploy against ever-growing demand for mobile bandwidth. The extreme competition in the industry means that operators cannot afford to have dead spots in their networks, even in 'mobile unfriendly' environments. This includes the need to expand coverage to in-building environments with cost-effective solutions.

Signal boosters have a specific role to play in providing coverage in buildings where a DAS or small cell is not possible or economic.

In this webinar, iGR and SureCall discuss the opportunity for signal boosters and how they are used as part of a complete Het-Net solution. As many mobile operators and enterprises have found, signal boosters provide a valuable addition to the tool kit.
