Join the Dots: Vodafone pops cork on Ericsson’s indoor Radio bottleneck solution

11 Dec 2014

UK-backed cellco Vodafone NL has become the first operator to commercially deploy Swedish vendor Ericsson’s Radio Dot System, inaugurating its services at Radboud University in the Netherlands. According to the vendor, the Radio Dot System ‘will remove indoor bottlenecks by providing coverage to different kinds of users in medium to large indoor locations,’ using a ‘radio dot’ antenna to increase mobile broadband performance. This is the first live enterprise deployment of Ericsson’s Radio Dot System, with the company saying it supports quick set-up and efficient integration into macro-networks. Chief technology officer at Vodafone Netherlands, Mallik Rao, commented: ‘Enterprise customers are an important part of our business and addressing their need for fast and reliable indoor mobile connectivity is high on our agenda. The Ericsson Radio Dot System is an efficient way of enhancing our indoor coverage and capacity.’
