Why Small Cell?
Corning SpiderCloud provides scalable and seamless cellular coverage and capacity for in-building networks and venues, all over your existing LAN. Combined with Corning® Optical Network Evolution (ONE™) Solutions, you now have access to a full-solution portfolio including fiber and power, software defined LAN (SD LAN), small cell, and cellular DAS.
Driving fiber-deep architectures within the enterprise, our complete and comprehensive solution promotes and advocates for optical convergence.
- Enterprise or smaller venue with in-building coverage challenges
- Building requiring coverage ranges in size from 50,000 – 1 million sq. ft, either single-structure, distributed facilities, or campus environments
- Has available capacity of 50-100 Mbps on existing internet connection
What Is the Value of Combining SpiderCloud Small Cells and the ONE Infrastructure?
High SIM density: Determined by connected devices per square foot, SIM density ranges from low (residential) to ultra high (stadium/convention center). The ONE system provides a robust infrastructure and virtually unlimited bandwidth for the SpiderCloud E-RAN and other network services that support an entire range of densities.
Multicarrier needs: Whether the targeted facility needs only two or all four of the major U.S. carriers, Corning cellular solutions can support any scenario.
Building size: Building size is no longer a factor in determining a cellular solution, and has been replaced in importance by network applications and carriers that support critical connectivity today.
