re: SpiderCloud: Cisco 'Naïve' on Small Cells Yeah, the existing players are going to be the biggest block to new players. We've already seen operators pick their macro providers for initial small cell deployments.

re: SpiderCloud: Cisco 'Naïve' on Small Cells Hrmm, I can't really tell if Ronny's comment is intended as a challenge, or simply a reflection on Cisco's hubris in believing that a strong EPC (Starent) and a somewhat strong SON portfolio (Intucell) can transform a middling femto (Ubiquisys) into an enterprise small cell contender. Either way, Cisco's bigger problems in this space seem to be coming from the dominant RAN players; they would likely allow SpiderCloud to succeed far before ceding any turf to Cisco.

re: SpiderCloud: Cisco 'Naïve' on Small Cells Enterprise small cells are somewhat different from residential small cells, especially in the 3G field. I think the comment was reasonable in the context that hand in to the small cell from the macro is a non-trivial exercise, but pretty much a must for enterprise settings.

re: SpiderCloud: Cisco 'Naïve' on Small Cells Cisco is going to wash away this itsy bitsy before they realize what hit them.

re: SpiderCloud: Cisco 'Naïve' on Small Cells "Cisco is a relatively new player in the small cell market..." umm, really? I was under the impression that Cisco has the largest small cell deployment in the world - the ATT Microcell? Perhaps they have learned just a bit from that?

re: SpiderCloud: Cisco 'Naïve' on Small Cells Qualcomm and Alcatel-Lucent in ‘small cell’ mobile tie-up

Qualcomm is to acquire a stake in Alcatel-Lucent as part of a far-reaching partnership agreement to develop the next generation of smaller mobile cell transmitters capable of coping with the rapid increase in mobile data.
The deal between the US chipmaker and the struggling French telecoms equipment group will be worth more than €100m in total research and development expenditure, according to a person familiar with the

re: SpiderCloud: Cisco 'Naïve' on Small Cells Is is possible that a large company with deep pockets such as Cisco just has more resources to throw at solving the challenges inherent in doing this, versus a much smaller company with fewer resources.

re: SpiderCloud: Cisco 'Naïve' on Small Cells First wave of AT&T small cells in Q3-Q4 2013 can be single mode. Ma Bell wants the next generation after to be multi-mode though. They also want say they want multi-vendor deployments.

They also want the moon on a stick ;-)

re: SpiderCloud: Cisco 'Naïve' on Small Cells I thought he said "eventually" though? It makes sense to make the LTE small cells multimode out the gate. WiFi is a cheap addition and 3G technology is mature.

Update to my comment: Donovan said in 2014 all small cells would have Wi-Fi: http://www.fiercebroadbandwire...

re: SpiderCloud: Cisco 'Naïve' on Small Cells Anyone who wants to sell an LTE small cell access point to AT&T will end up producing a multi-mode product; keep in mind that AT&T's John Donovan has publicly stated all their small cell access point deployments will include Wi-Fi.
