CommScope’s ONECELL® illustrates how small cells are evolving to help operators better support wireless users indoors. Using a unique C-RAN architecture, ONECELL® connects multiple distributed radio points via standard Ethernet cabling to a centralized baseband controller.
LTE scheduling takes place in the baseband controller, creating a single physical cell ID across all radio points. This eliminates border interference and the need for handovers within the coverage area.
ONECELL® also employs sophisticated coordination across radio points, enabling simultaneous re-use of physical resource blocks (PRB) in different parts of the building. This increases spectral efficiency and system capacity.
