Small cells are small individual antennas that are strategically placed to enhance cell signals from macro towers. They are usually owned and operated by a single operator and operate on a single frequency band. However, there are now multi-band/multi-technology small cells available in the market.
Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS), on the other hand, are small antennas that provide shared-infrastructure or a neutral host model for expanding wireless network coverage and capacity in hard-to-reach areas. DAS allows wireless carriers to extend their network footprint without additional infrastructure investment by leveraging a single system that addresses the wireless needs of multiple carriers.
