 Turkcell is trialling NEC’s indoor small cell solutions for the residential and enterprise markets to help customers overcome the challenges of using their mobiles indoors due to the signal blocking properties of the stone, concrete, steel and tinted glass used to construct many buildings.

In parallel, Turkcell has initiated trials of NEC’s outdoor small cell solutions to help boost network capacity to keep pace with mobile data demand.

NEC’s residential femtocell access points are the size of a modem and self-configure to support up to eight mobile phones simultaneously with a range of 40 meters.

Beside residential femtocells, NEC is also introducing compact enterprise femtocell access points, which can connect 16 mobile phones simultaneously with a range of 100 metres. Complementing this, the innovative Enterprise Radio Access Network (E-RAN) solution from NEC and SpiderCloud is designed to provide multimode 3G and LTE connectivity for many thousands of employees in large enterprises using the existing Ethernet infrastructure. Turkcell is also testing NEC’s gateway which aggregates the indoor small cell networks into a standardized lu interface connected into the mobile core network to streamline deployment and management activities
