Mobile broadband usage is increasing at a phenomenal rate. Mobile data traffic will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 53 percent from 2015 to 2020, reaching 30.6 exabytes per month by 2020 (Source - Cisco VNI report-2016).
However, current radio network topologies are unable to cope with such exponential traffic demands. The next performance enhancements will require an evolved network topology, as radio networks may soon reach the designed limits with 3G and LTE. Macro cells are able to address high capacity constraints but macro cells alone cannot meet the growing traffic demands. To address these growing traffic requirements, networks need to advance and use several layers consisting of macro and small cells across 2G / 3G / LTE / Wi-Fi.
TCTS' expertise in multi-vendor and multi-technology helps telcos understand and predict their network growth requirement, allowing to focus on new business trends.
Using a combination of macro, pico, femto and relay base stations across different technologies, heterogeneous networks enable flexible and low-cost deployments providing a seamless experience to users anywhere in the network. With heterogeneous networkson multiple radio access technologies and multiple layers present a significant and complex challengeto telcos for network deployment as compared to existing networks and hence will require innovative deployment strategies and partners.
With a strong expertise and exhaustive experience spanning across the complete lifecycle of network plan, build and operation phase and across multiple existing (2G / 3G / LTE / Wi-Fi) and next gen technologies (NFV / SDN / MVNO), TCTS provides a comprehensive solution targeting not only customers that are looking to accelerate their network deployment, but also those who want to reduce deployment complexity and risk when introducing next generation technology into their network.
TCTS with its global experience and footprint, shall prove to be a reliable consultancy and managed service partner for an end to end design, deploy, integrate (i.e. with existing network and infrastructure) and operate model, thus allowing the network owner to focus on potential areas of generating new revenue streams.
