The role for small cells and towercos in future networks
Bharti Infratel, edotco and Aird Towers share their perspectives
India’s Bharti Infratel, Australia’s Aird Towers and pan-Asian player edotco joined discussions with the Small Cell Forum at The Future Network’s Asian Meetup to examine the role that towercos will play in the rollout and management of small cell networks and share their views on what barriers still need to be overcome.
Asia Pacific is leading the way when it comes to small cell deployment globally, with the Small Cell Forum’s Sue Monahan observing that half of the worlds deployed small cells are located in the region. The progress made by leading APAC countries is a shining example of the urgency around hyperdensification with many markets on track to be hyperdense by 2021.
