Heterogeneous Networks (HetNet)

Deliver a high quality mobile broadband service using a hybrid network with unified control and optimization.

To enable the highest quality experience for demanding smartphone users, your network must have a low number of devices per cell. Users also have to be as close to the base station as possible. All this requires small cells. However, large cells are the most cost-effective way to serve fast-moving users and rural homes.

The best way to meet these differing requirements is with our Heterogeneous Network (HetNet) solution which deploys a mix of technologies, frequencies, cell sizes and network architectures to optimally respond to rapid changes in customer demand.

We can help you manage this hybrid network as a unified whole so that customers can be steered to the best cell for their speed, application and device. Our Heterogeneous Network saves power by switching off layers at times of low traffic, reduces cost by organizing itself without intervention and maximizes efficiency by managing interference and power levels automatically.
