Residents, employees and visitors to the City of London will be able to use a new world-class wireless network this year as proposals to expand free Wi-Fi and improve mobile coverage across the Square Mile have been given the green light.

A new network will replace the current free Wi-Fi service provided by the Cloud. State of the art equipment will provide gigabit speeds and see users able to enjoy high bandwidth services like video on demand over free City Wi-Fi for the first time. The service will surpass that found in the world’s other major international financial centre – New York.

New case study: Rapid small cell deployment in the urban jungle

Tokyo Softbank - Topology aerial photo

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.

Does backhaul hold the key to customer experience?

Managing customer experience is a complex task, with an ever-increasing number of variables to consider. But perhaps the most frustrating things for users these days is when you can’t do the very things that mobile operators are selling the latest and greatest handsets for – access the internet, download files and make video calls – when you’re on the move in busy urban areas that in theory at least, should offer the best mobile coverage and fastest speeds.
