Mobile World Congress: Small Cell demand is set to skyrocket – “UMTS-LTE Dual Mode is the key to growth”

The Mobile World Congress in Barcelona clearly shows that the market for Small Cells will be gathering significant momentum over the years to come. In fact, Simon Saunders, chairman of the Small Cell Forum, estimates that the numbers of Femto Cells deployed worldwide will be increasing from 3.2 million installed units in 2012 to over 60 million in 2016.

http://www.totaltele.com/view.aspx?ID=471674 “Driven by the Smartphone boom, Small Cells are the cornerstone for the next phase of digitalization for all economic sectors – gearing up to the next upswing in the App economy”, confirms Bernd Stahl from the telecommunications provider Nash Technologies on site at the exhibition in Barcelona.

The small radio cells are clearly way ahead of the conventional bulky masts. “They are considerably more cost-effective, their approval processes are less complicated and they can be deployed specifically where there is a high need for bandwidth and where many users communicate at the same time – for instance in football stadiums, inner-city areas or shopping centers”, says Stahl. The Nash Technologies network supplier develops software for companies that produce radio cells – and is most definitely experiencing high-level interest at the Mobile World Congress: “We are having many discussions about these developments, also due to the fact that the Smartphone wave is leading to a heightened need for broadband Internet, which raises the issue of supply”, adds Stahl. And this is just the beginning: “In the future, when the Internet in the key areas of logistics, traffic, health, energy, etc. leads to wide-reaching process digitalization, demand will become even greater.”

Stahl also adds that the introduction of new technologies inevitably implies a transition phase which is not to be underestimated. Whereas most currently developed Small Cells are equipped with LTE, there are hardly any LTE Smartphones. “For the most part, Internet-compatible mobile phones still run with UMTS. And, from a global perspective, this will continue to be the case for quite some time, especially in population-rich, newly industrialized countries and for most users in developed countries. Consequently, the radio cells, and especially Small Cells, need to be equipped with UMTS as well as LTE to enable the transition phase”, says Stahl. And this is exactly why Nash Technologies is present at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. As a telecommunications provider with decades of relevant experience, the software specialists from Nuremberg know their way around LTE, just as well as the considerably more complex world of UMTS. “It’s going to be all about having the different technologies working hand in hand, providing Smartphone users with a seamless transition between both technologies, without their user experience being disrupted”, says Stahl.

Stahl, the ICT expert, is also convinced that, through the development of Small Cells, the App economy will be experiencing its next upswing. Small Cells may only have small geographical coverage. But this makes for a huge benefit: network operators will be aware of exactly where a Smartphone is located, and specifically at locations where it hadn’t been possible previously, because GPS reception wasn’t available in buildings. “When potentially every small business in a downtown area has its own Small Cell, then there’s simply no limit to what can be done. A new type of location-based Apps will be possible, because a business model will be available to support them. Through new Apps, there will be more web traffic and therefore more growth.” To make sure that this growth is also possible during the transition phase from UMTS to LTE, the UMTS-LTE Dual Mode will be key.

Mobile World Congress: How Femtocells can Move Digitalization Forward

Press Release

Barcelona, 22/02/2012 – With every new Smartphone and every new tablet, potential problems escalate for network providers. They need to keep their mobile communication networks in top shape, otherwise customers could very well drown in data bottlenecks – as they themselves could in prohibitive power costs. “Digitalization of all economic sectors greatly depends on the industry’s willingness to invest”, states IT expert Bernd Stahl from network specialist Nash Technologies. The digitalization of all private and business processes is a megatrend that opens up huge opportunities for innovation and growth.

Hardly a day goes by without a device manufacturer announcing a new product to be launched at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, where the entire mobile communications sector is coming together to further drive the mobile Internet vision while setting new impetus for growth. In Germany alone, over 20 million people already have a Smartphone – and the trend is rising.

“The industry is currently facing three major challenges. On the one hand, network providers have to reduce their energy costs. Also, coverage has to be extended to address more rural areas. And finally, frequency ranges also have to be increased, if market needs are to be covered”, says Stahl. Energy costs arise for the most part through the base stations, which currently remain greatly responsible for supply. “The stations, which are often installed in high buildings or on their own masts, cover wide areas. For them to function sufficiently on the edges of these areas,  performance at their center automatically needs to be excessively high. This draws the balance downwards”, adds Stahl. Moreover, high costs arise through locations that are either rented or purchased.

A considerably more high-performance and cost-efficient solution is available through Femtocells: “The radio cells can be used where there is a high concentration of people – at hot spots in urban centers for instance. They can deliver in a highly targeted way rather than by providing widespread coverage.” For example, football stadiums or shopping centers can be equipped with their own radio cells. As well, they enable more cost-efficient coverage in rural areas.

The reliability factor is also extremely important in the mobile Internet. No one can afford to have their networks malfunction or break down due to overloading or unexpected events. This is even more important in view of the fast-rising numbers of mobile users and their increased need for bandwidth due to innovative Internet services. Femtocells are no exception, they carry their own set of challenges. This is why the specialists from Nuremberg are also showing their “Nash Protocol Tester” in Barcelona, with which Femtocell performance and efficacy can be tested. http://www.nashtech.com/home/products/nptr/

“Femtocells and Small Cells create the technological infrastructure for the ongoing development of entire economic sectors”, says Stahl. The degree of digitalization in certain industries can be as low as 30 to 45 percent. With digitalization, we are referring to communication, closeness to suppliers, process chains and delivery to end-customers – and not only straightforward LTE access. “The trend is crystal clear: what can be digitalized will be digitalized”, says Stahl.
