‘Inside-out’ is one way towards a converged world based on millions of small cells – fixed and cable operators have a real current cost advantage over mobile operators working ‘outside-in’.
The 'inside-out' approach to wireless network provision describes a strategy fixed and cable operators are adopting to develop low-cost, high-capacity vast national public heterogeneous networks (HetNets) and services on the back of their existing fixed broadband access infrastructure. All cells and access points operate in open-access mode, and additional capacity for areas with no coverage is provided on a wholesale basis by a mobile network operator. The approach could be successful, profitable, and
disruptive to legacy mobile operators.
