SoftBank Japan - rapid small cell deployment in the urban jungle
Urban small cells deployed at street level are the next logical step to meet growing data traffic demand in city centres. Practical solutions need to be quick and easy to install, adapt seamlessly with tactical evolution and be resilient during outages. SoftBank installed CCS Metnet self-organising microwave backhaul in the challenging metropolis of Tokyo, delivering valuable insight into the behaviour of 5G microwave.
Making the urban small cell happen
The long-awaited rollout of urban small cells is finally starting to happen. But the deployment challenges mean that a flexible approach to backhaul is essential. We share some of our experiences with Metnet – a self-organising, multipoint-to-multipoint microwave solution – and the need to work around an environment and sites that are often not ideal.
Enhancing small cell performance with synchronised backhaul
Timing synchronisation is fundamental to wireless network performance. Every individual radio transmitter throughout the network, effectively every cell, needs to be tightly aligned with its neighbours.
