  • Small cells will also be used for traffic offloading since the carrying capacity of lower frequencies, used by macro radio sites, are limited.
  • Use of already available street furniture like poles etc. for mounting 5G Small Cells can obviate the need for erecting thousands of new towers resulting in economical and fast deployment of small cells.
  • The Small cells will require backhaul connectivity which again can be provided very fast through aerial fibre deployment using street furniture.
