Smartphones need more coverage and better capacity Smaller cells step in to fill the gaps indoors and in hot zones. But how can operators get better capacity and coverage from existing macro sites, when users are unevenly spread out within the area? Signals spread over the cell sector The signal transmitted from an antenna spreads over a cell, and very…
