Telstra small cell deployment
Written by: Philip Mason | Published:

Ericsson has announced its deployment of indoor and outdoor small cells across Australian telecoms company Telstra's 4G LTE network. Products in the roll-out include the company’s radio dot system, as well as its pico cell RBS 6402.

Discussing the partnership, Telstra’s group managing director of networks Mike Wright said: "With this new agreement, Telstra can increase the small cell rollout across Australia. In urban areas we are looking forward to delivering better indoor coverage not only for individual customers in office buildings, but also to our enterprise customers in shopping centers and large indoor venues."

Ericsson’s Thomas Norén said: "Coordinated, embedded small cells improve performance through frequency reuse, increasing both network data capacity and throughput, without the need to split the available spectrum.

“Small cells also provide full-service transparency in the network, ensuring that voice-over LTE, voice-over WiFi and video calls work seamlessly in the network for a consistent user experience."

By leveraging Ericsson's macro and small cell solutions, Telstra hope to achieve a coordinated, elastic radio access network architecture, providing additional carrier aggregation and coordinated multi-point gains.
