Enterprise Small Cell Forecast 2014-2022 - Small Cells and Shared Spectrum: Powerful Weapons Against the MNO Model
In this 24 page report, RAN Research, the Wireless forecasting arm of Rethink Technology Research, is predicting that the rise of shared spectrum and protocols like LAA and MulteFire, will lead to a whole raft of new threats to existing cellular operators.
