The DQWeek (Mumbai) - - REGIONAL NEWS - DQW NEWS BUREAU Mum­bai

Sec­ond edi­tion of ‘ HetNet & Small Cells Congress’, an in­ter­na­tional Con­fer­ence cum ex­hi­bi­tion con­cludes on a suc­cess­ful note. The congress was or­ga­nized by Nex­gen Con­fer­ences, one of In­dia’s lead­ing con­fer­ences & B2B event or­ga­niz­ers. The day-long congress was held at ITC Maratha in Mum­bai.

The congress and ex­hi­bi­tion brought to­gether key in­dus­try play­ers, stake­hold­ers, thought lead­ers, an­a­lysts, and pro­fes­sion­als from well-known or­ga­ni­za­tions across the ICT in­dus­try. The congress also pro­vided an op­por­tu­nity for del­e­gates to dis­cuss, and ex­plore cut­ting edge tech­nol­ogy so­lu­tions to de­ploy het­ero­ge­neous net­works and small cells in the coun­try to en­sure seam­less and se­cure endto-end net­work con­nec­tiv­ity for cus­tomers.

Speak­ing on the oc­ca­sion, Rad­hey Shyam Sarda, Se­nior So­lu­tion Di­rec­tor, Huawei In­dia said, “Small Cell is a key to thriv­ing in­door dig­i­tal econ­omy. For op­er­a­tors, next decade of rev­enue growth will come from Mo­bile data and dig­i­tal ser­vices”.

The Congress laid more em­pha­sis on the im­por­tance of con­flu­ence of small cells and het­ero­ge­neous net­works in driv­ing the Net­work evo­lu­tion to­wards HetNet.

Ad­dress­ing the gath­er­ing, Marko Babovic, Head of Prod­uct Line In­doors, Eric­s­son Net­works In­fra­struc­ture Di­vi­sion, Eric­s­son said, “To meet the high re­quire­ments of net­work sub­scribers and to tackle the chal­lenges of ur­ban­iz­ing en­vi­ron­ments, we need to take a new ap­proach to net­work per­for­mance. Small Cells alone im­prove the net­work per­for­mance in cer­tain ar­eas, but in­te­grated Small Cells (macro and small cells com­bined) de­liver high per-user ca­pac­ity and rate cov­er­age every- where, with the po­ten­tial to im­prove per­for­mance in the macro net­work by of­fload­ing traf­fic gen­er­ated in hotspots.”

Rad­hey from Huawei fur­ther added, “More Than 80% of data traf­fic is con­sumed from in­door lo­ca­tions. In­door small cell can ab­sorb this traf­fic with much bet­ter user ex­pe­ri­ence and also en­able a num­ber of dig­i­tal ser­vices cre­at­ing new rev­enue stream and stick­i­ness.”

As per a Tele­com Reg­u­la­tory Au­thor­ity of In­dia re­port of May 2017, there are 1,180.82 mil­lion wire­less sub­scribers. Ac­cord­ing to TRAI data, the to­tal num­ber of broad­band sub­scribers in the coun­try at the end of May 2017 was 291.61 mil­lion. Of this, ac­cess through mo­bile de­vices ac­counted for nearly 273.38 mil­lion. With the grow­ing num­ber of smart­phone users, the de­mand for high-speed in­ter­net con­nec­tiv­ity and seam­less net­work is go­ing to in­crease ex­po­nen­tially over the next few years.
