LONDON -- NEC Corporation (NEC; TSE: 6701) today launched a pioneering “New Last Mile” one-stop-shop solution to help network operators deploy the next layer of LTE capacity and coverage in a rapid, economical and integrated way and keep pace with skyrocketing mobile broadband demand. It’s designed to simplify the end-to-end process of delivering the LTE brand promise in complex 3D urban landscapes, VIP customer sites outside the current macro footprint and rural areas in line with their spectrum licensing obligations.

By working with NEC on discrete turnkey projects – or on a full managed service basis – operators can reduce the costs of dealing directly with multiple contractors and benefit from access to NEC’s integrated approach which minimises site visits and helps to meet aggressive deployment schedules. This new business model leverages NEC’s leadership in open, multivendor HetNet technology and the most comprehensive small cell and backhaul portfolio in the market.

NEC provides a portfolio of highly specialist consultancy and project management services, including RAN hotspot identification using social networking analytics, advice on efficient RAN sharing schema between multiple operators and non-line-of-sight backhaul network design in complex urban terrains. NEC’s experts recommend, deploy and optimise the most appropriate microwave, millimeter wave or optical small cell and backhaul solution for each new site. Where dug fiber is not an option for cost, time or accessibility reasons, a wide range of point-to-point, point-to-multipoint, non-line-of-sight and near-line-of-sight backhaul wireless solutions are available to suit even the most challenging urban landscapes.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
