‘HetNet & Small Cells Congress 2017’ set to put spotlight on Network Evolution


‘HetNet & Small Cells Congress 2017’, an international Conference cum exhibition is set to put spotlight on the evolution of networks. This conference is going to be held on Thursday, August 24, 2017 at ITC Maratha in Mumbai.

The Congress will bring the Information and Communication Technology industry at a common platform, to discuss, analyze, and showcase the prowess and future of HetNet & Small Cells deployment in ICT industry. The comprehensive platform will witness the participation of key telecom industry stakeholders, thought leaders, analysts, and professionals representing well-known organizations from across the industry.

It will facilitate the exchange of ideas and insights, and enhance awareness regarding future challenges and possible solutions of deploying heterogeneous networks and small cells in the country on a large scale.

It is projected that there will be 25-50 billion connected devices globally by 2020, if provided the affordable access and seamless connectivity for voice and data. At present, India has more than 1 billion active mobile connections, and millions of Indians have started getting online in a very short span of time.

The congress will shed light on the role of small cells and heterogeneous networks to ensure seamless customer experience, as well as a scalable and flexible high-speed data connectivity solution especially in crowded and remote areas.

In order to support the digitally-driven initiatives of government including Digital India and Smart Cities Mission among others, it is important for the ICT market landscape to understand the need of network planning while generating a heterogeneous network. It will put major emphasis on addressing solutions and challenges to drive Network evolution towards HetNet in order to enhance coverage and capacity, improve QoE, and explore new revenue opportunities.

HetNet infrastructure is expected to carry more than 70% of all mobile network data traffic by 2020, which will account for $380 Billion in mobile data service revenue. Telecom operators thus need to deploy heterogeneous networks as it enables integrated Wi-Fi, high-performance backhaul, and advanced traffic management while increasing the area served by small cells, with the help of Cell Range Extension (CRE). It will help them to meet major challenges including limited spectrum resources, complex network environments, and high network costs.

“We are all set to host India’s first-ever HetNet & Small Cells Congress 2017, which will provide a great opportunity for everyone to gain deep insights on growth opportunities and challenges ahead for the entire ICT industry landscape to effectively deploy HetNet & Small Cells. As small cells, carrier WiFi, DAS and C-RAN infrastructure investments are expected to account for $20 Billion by 2020, this highly interactive platform will enable all the participants to build the next-generation HetNet infrastructure roadmap for India,” says Anjani Kumar Singh, CEO, Nexgen Conferences.

As on date, this summit is sponsored by well-known organizations such as Huawei, Ericsson, Rosenberger, Aricent, Delta and supported by COAI, Broadband India Forum, ITU – APT Foundation of India and TAIPA and more to join.
