Multi-operator small cell can support four carriers

Network infrastructure vendors are all looking for ways to take the cost out of distributed antenna systems to open up the vast–and underserved–market of enterprises that need in-building cellular connectivity. The approaches are essentially a re-architecture of DAS, using a small cell as the signal source for a DAS or providing multi-operator support in small cells.

With a trio of new products, Ericsson seems to be taking the latter approach. Building on its Radio Dot small cell unit, Ericsson this week unveiled it’s Multi-Operator Dot, Multi-Dot Enclosure and Strand-Mount Unit.

The company bills the multi-operator small cells as combining the “benefits of an active DAS solution with the coverage and capacity of the Radio Dot System.” The enclosure serves to minimize the visual impact of a deployment, and the strand-mount is meant for outdoor radio concealment on “existing aerial cables.”
