This TR contains scenarios and requirements for the small cell enhancement for E-UTRA and E-UTRAN.
Small cells using low power nodes are considered promising to cope with mobile traffic explosion, especially for
hotspot deployments in indoor and outdoor scenarios. A low-power node generally means a node whose Tx power is
lower than macro node and BS classes, for example Pico and Femto eNB are both applicable. Small cell enhancements
for E-UTRA and E-UTRAN will focus on additional functionalities for enhanced performance in hotspot areas for
indoor and outdoor using low power nodes.
This document captures the scenarios and requirements for small cell enhancements. TR 36.913
used as reference whenever applicable in order to avoid duplication of the requirements.
