All of the products are optimized in performance, physical footprint and cost for a variety of small cell use cases, from capacity driven dense urban deployments to coverage motivated rural implementations. NEC also offers local services to assist with planning, deployment and operations, and in cases where customers choose to use NEC's small cell products, NEC can offer an increased level of physical and service management integration of small cell and backhaul equipment.

Dejan Bojic, NEC's Director of Product Strategy for Mobile Backhaul, says: "Small cells in the context of heterogeneous Radio Access Network (RAN) are essential to fulfill the promise of 4G user experience, and the backhaul of small cells is currently perceived as the major obstacle by network operators. We have listened carefully to what our customers want in terms of performance and cost, and we believe we have developed the most advanced and the most comprehensive solution package available in the market."

Mr. Bojic continues: "Being effectively a one-stop shop for all of our customers' backhaul needs gives us the capability to uniquely enhance network performance and drive down the cost of ownership. And as with any other solution provided by NEC, we provide the industry-best quality and operational excellence on which our customers can rely, a key advantage when adopting new technologies and new network architectures."

NEC is showcasing its solution portfolio for small cell backhaul at Mobile World Congress 2013 in Barcelona, Spain from February 25 - 28 at the Fira Gran Via, Hall 3, Stand 3B4.
