Excellent signal essential for demonstrations

Location inside shopping mall may have poor signal

Shopping centre owner seeks to charge for rights to cover

Coverage may be worse at rear of store

Need high data performance for demonstrations

Existing IP connection for point of sale terminals

Picocells can provide coverage

Makes use of exiting IP connection

No involvement from shopping mall owners

Output power can give coverage in mall

Capacity can be reserved for data channels

4 time slots for EDGE can give 164k throughput

give coverage in mall – Capacity can be reserved for data channels – 4 time slots

Underground car parks

GSM signal does not penetrate underground

Coverage may be required for safety or network quality concerns

Low GSM traffic area

Access for donor antenna may be limited

Difficulty in routing thick coax cables for passive system

Difficulty in routing thick coax cables for passive system – Requires very cost effective solution –

Requires very cost effective solution

Picocells only require Ethernet cabling

No need for dedicated equipment room

Service for VIPs

Providing VIP coverage can be difficult

Large properties

Low density of buildings

Do not want masts in their area

Require good coverage

Personal and staff use

Will not tolerate blocking

Need dedicated capacity

nanoBTS is a good solution

Reuse existing backhaul

Small and discrete

Using nanoBTS for temporary coverage

One-off events that demand extra capacity are expensive

Traditional approach: CoW (cellular on wheels)

Each deployment may cost many tens of thousands of dollars

Picocells

Highly targeted capacity & coverage

Small & easy to deploy

Can be used far from mains power (PoE)

Example

Picocells in trees for music festivals

Picocells were used in the press office

at the 2009 Monaco Grand Prix

Integrating with an existing DAS

Major Hospital in Florida

Newly Constructed Hospital

This hospital made a decision to ensure that patients and visitors to the hospital have coverage in all areas of the hospital to include patient rooms

Neutral hosted system

The hospital owns the DAS

All carriers were allowed to connect

Most opted for repeaters

OMC-R

The OMCR manages the whole network from one interface.

Server

connects to all BSCs in the network

Supports Active / Standby configuration

Clients

connect to the server in order to work with the management information

The client has three main functional areas:

Fault Management

Configuration Management

Performance Management

Interfaces

The BSC exposes a CORBA based management interface to the OMC-R server

Management traffic is communicated over an IP network connection to the OMC-R server

SNMP interface for the umbrella Fault Management System.

PM counters fully exportable to third party operator systems.

Fault Management

Alarm management

Captures alarms from BTS and BSC

Can be integrated with existing alarm system

Configurable alerts and alarm grouping

Summary

ip,access are the worlds leading small cell provider

The ip.access solutions brings a low cost alternative to DAS/Micro BTS

installations.

All our products use IP for backhaul which brings huge OPEX and CAPEX

savings.

In-building coverage issues can be delivered in days rather than weeks/months for a fraction of the cost.
