UK-Based Dense Air Extends Oz 5G Reach
Dense Air, the surprise bidder in Australia’s recent 3.6GHz spectrum auction, says it will launch a wholesale service that carriers can use to extend the reach of their own 5G networks.
Dense Air is now hoping to set up operations Down Under that would allow it to run 5G services from multiple operators through the same physical small cell or “femtocell”.
CEO Paul Senior spruiked the company’s credentials, saying: “Our spectrum enables us to offer a completely new type of wholesale service to 5G network operators. Dense Air will complement planned 5G deployments, by allowing much greater densification than can be achieved with macro cells alone. “
