Ericsson Radio Dot System
Ericsson Radio Dot System is re-defining the small-cell market with
scalable functionality, simple installation, and integration with
The new Radio Dot System is designed to extend that mobile broadband
capacity, both 3G and LTE, into enterprise buildings and public venues.
The visible element of the Ericsson Radio Dot System, known as the Dot,
is sleek and compact, to blend in with any indoor environment.
it's more than an antenna but less than a femtocell as it relies
on an in-building base station to process the signalling, but takes care
of the radio stack itself. With weighing only
300g the Dot is styled to disappear into the office décor. Using Ethernet Cat 5, 6, or 7 for the last few metres should make
installation easier, however it is recommended to use dedicated cables rather than sharing the office infrastructure.
Indoor environments pose special challenges for service providers.
Current indoor solutions present complexity, scalability and service
continuity limitations that can restrict the user experience.
Distributed Antenna System (DAS) are built mainly for voice coverage in
very large buildings and venues and are expensive to upgrade to meet the
growing capacity demands of mobile data.
Quick Facts & Features
- Ultra-small but can scale to
almost unlimited capacity
- Future proof and 100 percent integrated
with existing mobile networks
- Designed for minimal visual impact,
it is no more noticeable than a smoke detector
- One cell can be used to cover each
floor, or multiple cells can improve capacity
- Possibility to re-use existing LAN
- It adapts capacity to serve the
needs of users anywhere in the building
- The system can be used in most
buildings, including arenas, shopping malls and campuses
- The most cost-effective, no-compromise
solution to indoor coverage challenges
- It can be deployed 70 percent
faster than current solutions
- Reduces cabling costs by 60
- At 300g the antenna weighs
about the same as a can of soda and can fit in a person’s hand
- Incorporating 14 patents, Ericsson
Radio Dot System redefines indoor small cells
The Ericsson Radio Dot System delivers seamless app coverage to the
operator’s consumer and business customers in the broadest range of
in-building deployment scenarios, including the under served, high
growth, medium-to-large building and venue category.
At the other end of the
spectrum, most residential and small business or venue requirements are
addressed by the outside-in effect of the outdoor macro or micro. As
building size increases along with the numbers of highly mobile users, a
new solution needs to provide coverage scalability, interference and
The Ericsson Radio Dot System leverages the same industry-leading
features found in Ericsson's macro base station, including Carrier
Aggregation and Combined Cell for WCDMA and LTE. Deployments and
upgrades are simple, addressing growing capacity and coverage
The user experience is consistent wherever they go and the
indoor network evolves in lockstep with the outdoor network. Ericsson
Radio Dot System also supports integration with Ericsson's carrier Wi-Fi
portfolio enabling features such as real-time traffic steering to
ensure the best user experience across both Wi-Fi and 3GPP networks.

Ericsson Radio Dot System is compact and offers flexible mounting. It
introduces a revolutionary antenna element, or 'Dot', which delivers
mobile broadband access to users. Dots are connected and powered via
standard internet LAN cables (Category 5/6/7) to indoor radio units that
link to a base station.
