Vendor, operator moves signal change for small cells in 2015

For the past three years, FierceWireless contributor Joe Madden has been saying that 2015 will be "the year" when you will see small cells ramp up. Indeed, several things are happening to support that theory. After years of tests, Cisco finally flipped the switch on a product that can be plugged into a huge installed base of enterprise Wi-Fi routers. Verizon Wireless is devoting a significant chunk of its capex budget to "densification," including small cells. Vodafone and EE are intent on pushing the Cisco/Spidercloud solution for enterprise customers in the UK.
