DAS and Small Cell Convergence
David ChambersFounder & Senior Analyst ThinkSmallCell

Several new products have launched which combine DAS, support multiple operators, multiple technologies and multiple bands with their own built-in small cells. In the light of imminent new technologies and spectrum bands, will these prove to be the nirvana for in-building cellular or just address particular market niches? This presentation will address:

  • Traditional tradeoffs between DAS and Small Cells
  • Implications of VoLTE, CBRS and LAA
  • Powering DAS from Small Cells
  • Cabling: coax, fibre or CAT5/6
  • Choosing between overlay vs integrated solutions
  • The role(s) of tomorrow’s neutral hosts
  • Mapping markets to solutions

Finding the Middle Ground on IBW Spectrum
Ben PatulloChief Technology Officer,Sunwave Solutions

The radio planning for traditional DAS was typically a slight variation from the operators’ macro-cellular radio plan, with every available portion of spectrum deployed with a minimum number of sectors. With the arrival of Small Cells, this dramatically changed to become a limited bandwidth approach with saturated sectorisation. This presentation will explain that the smart approach to deploying In-Building Wireless is somewhere in the middle.

14:10

Venue


The 5-star NH Collection Amsterdam Barbizon Palace hotel is a unique piece of history, expertly converted from several 17th century town houses and a 15th century chapel. Its rooms and lobbies evoke the romance of the past, with wooden beams and pointed ceilings. In the very heart of Amsterdam’s old quarter, the city’s key attractions, and the Central Station, are just steps away.


The 274 bright, contemporary rooms are spread across six floors, many commanding a view over the city. In some Premium rooms and suites you will find traces of the hotel’s historical architecture, including exposed beams and arched ceilings.
