French spectrum agency announces small cell trials

Thursday 19 January 2017 | 13:13 CET | News
French spectrum agency ANFR announced the launch of a small cell trial in the city of Annecy, which will run for a month on the Orange network from 11 January. Similar trials will be carried out during the first half of the year over the networks of Bouygues Telecom and SFR in other French cities. The agency aims to test how small cells can improve LTE coverage and data rates to cope with the increase in mobile broadband traffic. The trials will also provide an insight on how future networks could be built in smart cities and the impact on radio wave exposure.
