Only thing is that this big bang is not happening quite as fast as the first. The HetNet (heterogeneous network) evolution is driven by the user's demand for increased capacity and coverage, and takes advantage of emerging technologies and network topologies that make better use of the spectrum and deliver a lower cost per bit. So what's taking so long? In short, it's not easy. The HetNet consists of multiple access technologies: the macrocell network, standalone public and carrier integrated Wi-Fi, distributed antenna systems (DAS), and small cells - all layered and interconnected to deliver a better user experience and a more efficient network, albeit a more complex network. The HetNet ecosystem is spawning new opportunities for carriers, contractors, and manufacturers alike. The technology associated with the HetNet is impressive from self-optimized network (SON) management tools, to millimeter wave backhaul and multiband, multicarrier DAS solutions, it's clear that each carrier will adopt a fairly unique strategy, each leveraging the strengths of their existing networks and meeting their business requirements. The good news is that the HetNet presents limitless architectures and is sure to fuel the "bang" for years to come. WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE MORE THAN 6 BILLION CELLULAR DEVICES ON THE PLANET DEMAND MORE BANDWIDTH? Visit www.tessco.com/go/das to learn more.
