Verizon To Roll Out Ericsson’s Dot Cell

Comments Off on Verizon To Roll Out Ericsson’s Dot Cell 50

Ericsson has scored the first U.S. deployment of its Radio Dot small cell, with Verizon opting to roll it out at its regional headquarters in Detroit, Michigan.

Verizon will use the Dot to improve indoor LTE coverage and support its voice over LTE (VoLTE) service, Advanced Calling, which will enable staff to place HD voice and video calls.

“Our work with Ericsson and this deployment of the Radio Dot System in one of Verizon’s key office locations is another example of how we are leveraging the best technology to densify our 4G LTE network and deliver seamless customer experiences, indoor and out,” said Adam Koeppe, vice president of network planning at Verizon, in a statement on Friday.

Ericsson’s disk-shaped device resembles a smoke alarm and incorporates a new antenna design, called a ‘dot’ antenna, hence the name. The cells are connected and powered by Cat 6A LAN cables, which run to an indoor radio unit, which in turn connects to the nearest macro base station. Original post at Total Telecom
