5G Small Cells
5G technology addresses many challenges in terms of data speed, reliability and latency specifications. To provide higher bandwidth and extend coverage to more users, 5G technology uses small cell concept.
Small cells in 5G technology
Small cells are low power, short range wireless transmission systems (base stations) used to cover a small geographical area or indoor / outdoor applications. They are uniquely capable of handling high data rates for mobile broadband and consumers. They can also support high densities of low-speed and low-power devices for IoT applications. This feature makes them perfect for the 5G rollout that promises ultra-high speeds, a million devices per square mile and latencies in the millisecond range.
Furthermore, advanced technologies like massive MIMO and beamforming are used in 5G technology to increase data rate and spectrum efficiency.
