INTRODUCTION To understand the future of the 5G network is, to some extent, to understand the future of small cells. Future mobile networks will need to meet an increasing and diverse number of use cases, from narrowband low-power IoT to Virtual Reality apps and automated cars, to very high throughput mobile broadband services. To do that they will need to deploy technology that is capable of meeting very low end-to-end latencies, the highest throughputs, be ultra-reliable, provide ubiquitous coverage, meet low power and narrow band connectivity, and also be flexible in spectrum utilisation. All this must be capable of being dynamically controlled and flexible in its usage of resources. These trends will impact directly upon small cells because it is small cells, deployed within a 4G-4.5G-5G Het Net, that will increasingly become the enablers of many of these network capabilities. This eBook outlines how small cells will incorporate these new technologies and standards, and will adapt to and be deployed within new network architectures. But not only that, it describes how small cells will evolve from their current role as an important tactical tool to forming the strategic heart of the 5G network.
