Mobility Lab Webinar #3: Inter-Operator Mobility with CBRS

CableLabs

CBRS networks will use low power small cells which inherently provides short distance coverage and thus target deployment in high traffic areas. Operators will likely have to rely on macro-cell network coverage to compensate for mobile service outside CBRS network coverage.

Mobility Lab Webinar #3 Recap: Inter-Operator Mobility with CBRS

Mobility Lab Webinar Recap: Over-the-Top (OTT) Aggregation

CableLabs

Wireless operators have always been driven to meet increasing user demand by achieving higher data rates and improving quality of service. To fulfill these needs, wireless operators have used various types of carrier aggregation, including several commonly used industry-standard solutions: Traditional multi-carrier aggregation. OTT aggregation solutions leverage existing cellular and Wi-Fi infrastructures without requiring any significant changes on the network and end-user devices.

The Impact of 5G on Enterprise Network Monitoring

Mobility Lab Webinar #2: Over-The-Top (OTT) Aggregation

CableLabs

Achieving higher data rates and increasing quality of service (QoS) have always been driving forces for wireless operators to meet increasing user demand for higher throughputs. Along with these benefits come certain tradeoffs in terms of capital investments, complexities, the need to own spectrum and the need to own certain network components. OTT aggregation solutions can be implemented irrespective of what cellular network assets the MSOs own.
