Carrier Wi-Fi Meets Small Cells with China Mobile 

We would like to invite you to an exclusive webinar entitled ‘Carrier Wi-Fi Meets Small Cells’, presented by Maravedis-Rethink and featuring our guest speaker, Mr Tao Sun, Program Manager for Network Technology at China Mobile, the world’s largest mobile operator, which has an ambitious program for TD-LTE, small cell and Wi-Fi deployment.

Tao Sun has worked in the small cell area for four years and drafted the enterprise femtocell specification for China Mobile, as well as co-leading the small cell project in the NGMN. He is heavily involved with the carrier’s Nanocell project, which is focused on integrating small cells with Carrier Wi-Fi. 

China Mobile already deployed about 4 million WLAN APs in the network, aiming at 6 million Aps in future. It also plans to deploy 200,000 LTE base station in 2013. Nanocell will play important roles in China Mobile network as a cost-effective broadband solution.

The webinar will offer a unique opportunity to gain details and insights into this important project, which will break new ground in LTE deployments, integrated small cells and Carrier Wi-Fi. Other topics will include small cell standards, the use of unpaired spectrum, and the future evolution of the HetNet.

These insights will be complemented by key findings from Maravedis-Rethink's MOSA (Mobile Operator Strategy Analysis) and RAN Service analysts. MOSA tracks the top 100 4G operators and their business strategies, and has a per-carrier analysis of small cell and Carrier Wi-Fi deployment plans, among other topics. Meanwhile, the RAN Service tracks worldwide roll-outs of all types of carrier infrastructure, with granular five-year forecasts in areas including metrocells, Wi-Fi and the macro layer. 

In the webinar, Research Director Caroline Gabriel will share selected highlights from the latest MOSA and RAN forecasts, including exclusive data in areas such as Carrier Wi-Fi intentions, the emergence of multimode small cells, and LTE-Advanced implementation.

Why does Maravedis-Rethink charge for its webinars?
Although our webinars are free to subscribers of one of our annual services, we charge a small fee to non-customers so that we can produce top quality events with leading operators in a vendor-neutral setting. Uniquely in this field, our webinars are not sponsored by vendors. We are the ONLY analyst firm that secures speakers from top operators to share their experiences and expectations while avoiding the common sales pitch provided by vendors which normally sponsor these on-line events. In order to continue to provide the industry with great events featuring top operators, we must charge a modest fee to non-subscribers.To learn more about becoming a subscriber to our services, please contact Adlane Fellah at
