Small cells are low-powered radio access nodes used in densely populated urban areas to increase range and capacity for the next evolution of cellular standards. The indoor advantages of a small cell node networks include improved coverage, very small footprint, lower cost and higher flexibility than picocells or distributed antenna systems.
Corning Everon® solutions include the world’s first scalable indoor small cell system, Spidercloud. One system, comprised of one services node, can manage up to 125 dual-carrier LTE radio nodes, providing reliable coverage and capacity for sites up to one million square feet. Our indoor small cell network architecture enables mobile operators to deliver reliable mobile services to enterprises and venues. Corning’s 5G small cell nodes offer a smooth path to adding 5G to the thousands of LTE Enterprise Radio Access Network (E-RAN) systems available today.
