Small Cell base stations are critical supplementary pieces for mobile networks. They are always considered and deployed to eliminate network blind spots. While high-power large-capacity macro cell base stations provide major network coverage over open areas and long ranges, small cell base stations can be flexibly deployed to strengthen mobile signal quality in either dense population hot-spots such as shopping malls, cinemas, theatres and so on, or cover difficult terrains and rural areas where the population is not much worthy building macro cell stations.
Small cell base station installation can also help to improve the user experience of mobile subscribers. In hot-spot areas, the deployment of small cells can effectively balance wireless channels bandwidth, so that data transfer speeds can be efficiently improved. Small cells can also help to to extend handset battery life by reducing transmission power draw, so they won’t always work in high power mode to connect macro stations.
