2016 - The year for small cells to finally ramp up
Insights on where and why growth is to be expected this coming year and how some of small cells’ limitations are now being addressed
The maturity of small cells has increased significantly over the past two years, with significant advances and cost savings being made in not only the technology but in installation and network management. 2015 saw the first significant shipments of small cells being made leading observers to believe that 2016 will be the year when small cells finally start to take off. With Europe lagging behind in small cell adoption it positions them well to learn valuable lessons from the US and Asia in the rollout of the technology.
