"Small cells have made significant advances, but indoor coverage still poses problems in terms of scalability, macrocell feature parity, and ease of deployment and operation."

Indoor small cells have come a long way since the early femtocell ‘all-in-one’ designs. Initial large-scale deployments had interference and manageability problems, and overall offered poor service quality for users. New solutions deliver increased intelligence to automatically manage small-cell and macrocell interference, monitor service levels and provide centralised management options that can support up to 100 000 users.

This report:

- discusses the key features of small-cell solutions for large indoor venues and sites
- assesses the challenges that these installations face
- considers how the components of large-scale indoor small-cell solutions are connected together into a system and how they are managed
- outlines the features and services that indoor small-cell solutions can support

This report analyses small-cell solutions for large-scale indoor venues. These solutions address coverage and capacity requirements, and support local services and monetisation opportunities.

The report also provides recommendations for small-cell network equipment vendors. It is based on several sources:

- This internal research including our small-cell forecasts and our analysis of consumer smartphone usage
- Interviews with stakeholders in the small-cell market including representatives from Ericsson, Huawei, Nokia and SpiderCloud.
