Umts reselection performance in small cell systems
A beacon cell adapted for use in a small cell ran includes dual identities—a beacon identity and a regular or “live” identity—in which the identities are individually configured to address differing performance requirements in the small cell ran. The beacon identity in the cell is specially configured to meet the performance requirements for mobile user equipment (ue) to be able to quickly and easily move from a macrocell base station in a mobile operator's network to the small cell ran using a process called “reselection.” the live identity is configured to meet all requirements for service to be provided to the ue within the small cell ran.
