Arieso’s technology analyzes mobile connection events to spot exactly where the heaviest users are, so operators can deploy small cells in those locations. For JDSU, this makes for a more comprehensive network testing portfolio.
Half of the base stations now deployed by telco operators are small cells, which means telcos have to deal with the problems of scale out systems. Here’s what they can learn from IT guys who deal with the same issue in their data centers.
Arieso is working with a major U.S. carrier to plan for the advent of small cells. The company won’t name the operator, saying only it was a Tier I player, but that carrier is using its tools to help build the heterogenous networks of the future.
Intucell is working with an unnamed North American operator to build a new kind of self-aware cellular network. Its self-optimizing network technology will transform today’s static cellular grid into a network of constantly expanding and shrinking cells that follow customers through the network.
