he advent of the smart phone and more recently the rise of the tablet has transformed the demand side of mobile networks. The end user’s relationship with their mobile operator is driven by the data user experience they experience. This drives a need to fundamentally change the mobile network architecture from a macrocell based system to a small cell architecture. The fundamental challenge of increasing the cell density is where to put the base stations, how to power them and how to backhaul them. Cable Operators have a unique opportunity to leverage the Hybrid Fibre-Coax network and enable the deployment of 100s of thousands of cell sites. This opens up new business models and new capabilities for delivering wireless services for MSOs and Mobile Operators that could transform the mobile world.
