Alcatel-Lucent and G-Mobile launch new era of mobile communications in Mongolia with deployment of lightRadio small cells – Oct 28, 2013– Paris, France (Techreleased) – Alcatel-Lucent and  G-Mobile, one of Mongolia’s leading service providers, are to deploy small cell base stations to improve 3G mobile broadband coverage in densely populated areas such as shopping malls and stadiums in the capital city of Ulaanbaatar.


The city, which is home to approximately 45% of the country’s population, will be the location of an initial deployment to be followed by an expansion in 2014 covering the greater Ulaanbaatar area and other major Mongolian cities in 2014.

Small and compact, Alcatel-Lucent’s small cells can be placed inconspicuously in internal and external environments, offering a lower cost-per-bit solution for adding 3G mobile broadband coverage and capacity compared to traditional macro cells, repeaters, or distributed antenna systems (DAS).

Key facts:

  • G-Mobile’s initial small cell deployment will provide better coverage and boost capacity for its wireless 3G network in densely populated locations such as malls and stadiums where quality coverage is often limited.
  • Alcatel-Lucent will provide its lightRadio™ small cells portfolio including the 9362 Enterprise Small Cells and 9764 Metro Cells Outdoor solutions, together with integration and technical support for high quality and rapid deployment.
  • Small cells improve the quality of mobile coverage – both for voice and high speed data access – by making more effective use of available wireless spectrum.
  • Small cells are a key element in The Shift Plan, Alcatel-Lucent’s industrial strategy to reposition the company as a specialist vendor of IP Networking and Ultra-Broadband Access.
