Next-generation of mobile technologies is expected to largely augment the system's peak data rates and cut down on the round-trip delays. The main idea of using ultra-density or DAS (Distributed Antenna Systems) based on their properties, is that they are able to increase efficiency and expand network capacity without the need for more spectrum resources by redistributing the existing ones, depict them as the key solutions for the future mobile networks. Small cells and DAS were launched mainly for addressing the issue of limited connectivity indoors.
