As early macro network deployments of 5G start the heavy lifting of serving increasingly common unlimited data packages, the discussion about the optimal approach to meeting capacity and in-building demand comes back into focus. The perennial dilemma emerges: the latest Wi-Fi offering, or a new generation of 5G capable small cells?
It doesn’t have to be this way…
The multitude of deployment models, the multitude of applications for wireless - there’s room in this boat for two. By exploring network deployment scenarios, device capabilities and emerging industry sector markets, the CW Small Cell SIG aims to convince you that the Wi-Fi vs small cell debate should be dead.
