WIRELESS TELECOMMUNICATIONS BUREAU

AND THE FCC'S TECHNICAL ADVISORY COMMITTEE SMALL CELL

AND SPECTRUM TASK FORCE ANNOUNCE

FORUM ON INDOOR DEPLOYMENTS OF SMALL CELL SITES

WT Docket No. 11-161

The FCC Wireless Telecommunications Bureau, in conjunction with the FCC's Technical
Advisory Committee Small Cell working group and Spectrum Task Force, is organizing a forum focusing
on indoor deployments of small cell sites on Friday, October 28, 2011, at the Commission's Headquarters
in Washington, DC. The event will begin at 10:45AM and end at 3:00PM.
Recent developments in technology offer an increasingly wide array of products to provide
wireless coverage and capacity in limited or confined areas. Together, they offer potentially useful
solutions to addressing the exploding demand for spectrum that is being driven by the exponential growth
in wireless data services.
The forum will provide an overview of small cell technologies currently available or soon to
come on line, including software defined radios and enhanced Wi-Fi in both licensed and unlicensed
spectrum. In addition, panelists will explore the business opportunities and challenges involved in
expanding wireless data coverage. Finally, the forum will assess the potential economic impact of small
cell deployments, particularly with respect to job creation, and explore possible policy approaches.
