In this paper, we present a new network deployment model termed “Neighborhood Small Cells” (NSC) consisting of very dense deployment of small cells providing both indoor and outdoor coverage to meet future data demand in a cost-effective manner. This unplanned or semi-planned (in RF sense) deployment model has significant advantages over traditional operator planned deployments. NSC model enhances user experience and offers both 3G and 4G network operators a viable solution to address the ever increasing data demand. In this paper we focus on 4G LTE NSC networks.
