Vertix Consulting, veteran providers of pragmatic and actionable insights on the most critical issues faced by telecom and other evolving industries, announces today the release of its new white paper entitled, “Small Cells: Is There a Business Model That Works for Vendors and Carriers?” The paper discusses the small cell investment landscape as it relates to growing data demands.
Currently, small cell investment is focused on improving overall coverage, increasing capacity and driving efficient spectrum use. But, as price wars are heating up, and ARPU is declining, MNO’s must adopt an aggressive cost structure in order to successfully deploy the tens and thousands of small cells required to significantly enhance performance.
“Small cell adoption is on the rise; however, there is not one particular driver to solely account for the increase,” states Greg Weiner, Partner, Vertix Consulting. “Carriers are seeing a number of dynamics influencing the marketplace, including the evolution of the vendor-carrier relationship and menu-driven pricing. These influencers, as well as others, will force carriers to focus on keeping deployment and operating costs down by moving away from the traditional macro mentality and adopting a disciplined approach.”
