CrowdCell is developing LTE relay architectures to extend indoor coverage with reduced CAPEX and OPEX investment.

Group Structure

Chair: Aitor Garcia (Vodafone)


The CrowdCell Project Group is a 4G Relay concept, whereby an intermediate “Crowd” enabled device relays traffic between a customer UE and the macro network. Its main benefit is to be a rapid and low cost small cell solution thanks to its Plug-and-Play (P&P) concept by means of using the available 4G coverage.

The CrowdCell Project Group focuses on creating a CrowdCell by leveraging General Purpose Processing (GPP) platforms, Software-Defined Radios (SDR) and reference designs for hardware and Open Source software to minimize costs with a “one design” flexible reference platform.
