Ericsson has rolled out a cellular radio that the company describes as small enough to fit a person's hand, but offers enough indoor network coverage for a crowd. The disc-shaped Ericsson Radio Dot System claims to target a range of applications for providing high-quality access to mobile broadband and voice services indoors, the company stated.

An in-building environment presents a special set of challenges for mobile operators, concerning complexity, scalability and service continuity. Current indoor solutions are built mainly for voice coverage and do not meet the growing capacity demands of apps. Covering major parts of buildings has been challenging, for reasons such as high costs and limited scalability.

Ericsson Radio Dot System is compact and offers flexible mounting. The device weighs 300g, is the result of two years of research and development, and incorporates 14 patents, boasted the firm. It introduces a revolutionary antenna element, or "dot," which delivers mobile broadband access to users, continued the company. Because of its convenient size, scalability and compelling evolution path, this product caters to different kinds of users in medium to large indoor locations, and aims to address operators' needs of offering a complete indoor solution.

Dots are connected and powered via standard internet LAN cables (Category 5/6/7) to indoor radio units that link to a base station. Radio Dot System leverages the same industry-leading features found in Ericsson's macro base station. Deployments and upgrades are simple, addressing growing capacity and coverage requirements. Thus the users' experience is consistent wherever they go and the indoor network evolves in lockstep with the outdoor network. Ericsson Radio Dot System supports integration with Ericsson's carrier WiFi portfolio enabling features such as real-time traffic steering to ensure the best user experience across both WiFi and 3GPP networks.
