The integration of license-exempt capability into conventional licensed cellular networks is being seen as an essential ingredient of mobile network evolution. In particular, compared to the possibly fragmented allocation of licensed spectrum, 5 GHz license-exempt solutions offer operators the opportunity to leverage over 450 MHz of spectrum.
The Small Cell Forum invites you to finish your week in London at Smalls Cells World Summit with this public half-day workshop where we will review the license-exempt options currently being considered and hear from industry analysts who have already completed work in this area. This is an interactive workshop with open discussion about the pros and cons of the various options. Small Cell Forum representatives, including Mark Grayson of Cisco, will talk about some of the work we have undertaken in this area, and share our vision of where we see license-exempt fitting into the HetNet of the future.
