Alcatel-Lucent, G-Mobile to deploy small cell base stations in Mongolia

Alcatel-Lucent and G-Mobile will deploy small cell base stations to improve 3G mobile broadband coverage in densely populated areas such as shopping malls and stadiums in the capital city of Ulaanbaatar. G-Mobile’s initial small cell deployment will provide better coverage and boost capacity for its wireless 3G network in densely populated locations such as malls and stadiums where quality coverage is often limited. Alcatel-Lucent will provide its light Radio small cells portfolio including the 9362 Enterprise Small Cells and 9764 Metro Cells Outdoor solutions, together with integration and technical support for high quality and rapid deployment.

Small cells improve the quality of mobile coverage–both for voice and high speed data access–by making more effective use of available wireless spectrum. Small cells are a key element in The Shift Plan, Alcatel-Lucent’s industrial strategy to re-position the ccompany as a specialist vendor of IP Networking and Ultra-Broadband Access,”

-Company statement.

The city, which is home to approximately 45% of the country’s population, will be the location of an initial deployment to be followed by an expansion in 2014 covering the greater Ulaanbaatar area and other major Mongolian cities in 2014. Small and compact, Alcatel-Lucent’s small cells can be placed inconspicuously in internal and external environments, offering a lower cost-per-bit solution for adding 3G mobile broadband coverage and capacity compared to traditional macro cells, repeaters, or distributed antenna systems (DAS).

“Small cells will enable us to sell many more smart devices and increase our market share among both households and enterprises,”BasBish.D, CEO of G-Mobile.

This small cell solution is the very first of its kind in the Mongolian telecom sector. By adding capacity and coverage exactly where it is needed Alcatel-Lucent’s lightRadio small cell technology has opened up the possibilities for expanding our business relationship with G-Mobile.
