In today’s environment, small cells (including femtocells and microcells) are essential for applications in need of increased bandwidth as well as the growing number of connected devices. In order for the technology industry to keep up with demand for mobile broadband, there is a need to increase the efficiency of existing assets; employ more resources in the form of small cells and spectrum; and adopt radically different ways of acquiring, deploying, operating, and managing these resources.
