Scenario Management

Flexible Routing

Scenario Management

Public venues, exhibitions and other high traffic areas are subject to very dynamic capacity demand scenarios. With conventional solutions, the complete capacity for a whole venue is normally scaled for a higher traffic requirement than actually needed. This is because conventional systems are neither dynamic nor flexible with respect to smart traffic management. One of the advantages of K-BOW is the ability to manage different scenarios and thereby route the capacity to where it is needed. For instance, crowded locations with high traffic requirements can be served with all available carriers, technologies and frequency bands subject to deployment of a predefined scenario.

Optimised Cell Structure

Another advantage of K-BOW is the possibility to adapt the number of cells depending on indoor traffic requirements.This special architecture feature eliminates potential border interferences, thereby making it possible to achieve up to 10 times higher data throughput at the cell edge. This optimise cell structure reduces the indoor handovers to a minimum, hence increases network quality and performance and customer experience. This is especially the case for VoLTE, where low latency is needed and where every handover is detrimental to system performance.

Small Cells Versus Micro C-RAN System

Stand-alone small cells are mainly deployed in residential facilities and small businesses. Having small cells in a building is a very fast way to roll out capacity for a single operator. Each small cell has its own dedicated capacity, handover and coverage area.

Small cells are characterised by limited user capacity. Due to price competition, the chipsets of these small cells have limitations in features (LTE-A features).

Small Cells Versus Micro C-RAN System

The biggest limitation in an LTE coverage area is at the cell edge, as typically the data speed performance of broadband services decreases dramatically due to interference and other reasons.

Power Saving

Green DAS Solution

Energy saving in in-building DAS systems is becoming more and more important. Depending on traffic requirements, K-BOW can turn certain bands into sleep mode, while ensuring that a minimum required coverage level is maintained. For instance, during certain times of the day a venue may require full capacity with all available carriers. During off-peak times, a scenario with a single carrier is sufficient to ensure service. This power-saving mechanism allows the operator to maintain full

customer satisfaction at a maximum service level with a minimum energy consumption. This can be implemented by deploying a pre-planned and pre-configured scenario which can be activated remotely as needed. Compared to a legacy DAS system, K-BOW can save up to 39% of energy on demand. Conventional DAS systems also need to respect total power considerations and undergo lengthy recalibration when adapting to such changes.
