Introduction to Small Cells

As small cells continue to be deployed in order to augment the service provider’s RAN coverage, this course covers the main considerations associated with small cell solutions. This includes the benefits of small cell deployment, as well as the supporting architecture required. The course also discusses the remote management of small cells and also the requirements for the backhaul network, including focus on SON.
