Vodafone UK tests Ericsson Radio Dot system for indoor cover

Tuesday 14 July 2015 | 09:54 CET | News
Vodafone has started testing in the UK Ericsson's Radio Dot system for improved in-building coverage. The technology uses CAT 5 Ethernet to connect small antennae throughout the premises with a central radio access network. The system is being tested initially at Vodafone's offices in Waterloo, London, The Register reported. The trials use Vodafone's 800MHz spectrum, which travels further and penetrates better through walls than other 4G signals. Vodafone will test different office deployments and scenarios with the view of trialling the Ericsson 4G Radio Dot system with corporate customers
