Self-Perform Deployment Advances Networks and the Smart City

Despite a growing cache of innovative smart city applications, smart is not a sure thing. The uptick of mobile data services, escalating subscriptions, and Internet of Things (IoT) connections sends data traffic soaring, which reduces network capacity. To satisfy subscriber demand and support the smart city evolution, many carriers are deploying small cells to expand their wireless networks and fill gaps in capacity and coverage. Towards streamlined small cell connection, carriers are scrutinizing deployment approaches and trading the multi-vendor process for a self-perform approach.
