The HetNet landscape is poised for strong momentum in 2017. The trend to densification, together with virtualization and the vision of 5G slowly taking shape on the horizon, means operators face a profound evolution of their networks not limited to the interaction of “low-power node” technologies but going beyond current concepts of network density. Though they probably grabbed most of the headlines over the last few years, small cells are only one solution for creating denser network coverage and raising capacity. Small cells are part of a mosaic of wireless technologies, and the range of low power nodes is widely varied in form factor: think small cells including microcells, picocells, metrocells, micro and pico remote radio heads (RRHs), enterprise small cells, and residential femtocells, as well as distributed antenna systems (DAS) and carrier WiFi.
