System and Method to Enhancing Small Cell Capability to Contain Data Flow in a Venue to Enhance Fan/End User Experience

Wireless and phone services struggle to deliver basic service levels in public places

where density of users and radio signal interference is high. Telecommunication companies have the primary relationships with clients; however, the companies experience a conflict of interest with competing carriers, which can result in a bad

consumer experience. Small cell networking infrastructure is expensive, and rapid innovation at this early stage of the market reduces the time to recover capital investment.

Figure 1: A typical heterogeneous cellular network

In wireless communication networks of the prior art, telecommunications companies add a small cell to a macro network, the heterogeneity comprising the combination of a small cell with a macro cell. Integrating small cells into a macro cellular network has multiple challenges. Backhauling the traffic to the cell site can be expensive and inefficient. In addition, while the capacity in many venues is addresses by Direct Access Storage (DAS), these systems do not add any intelligence to the network, but simply act as repeaters. This further adds to the backhaul data problem due to exponential growth in data driven by mobile applications.

A system or method is needed to provide a seamless user experience by enabling

venue-specific value-added telecommunication services.

The novel contribution is an inte...
