Mike Flanagan, chief technology officer for network software firm Arieso, said the networks were coming under pressure from a small group of users who consume a huge amount of data, often for video or gaming.
He said one percent of all subscribers consumed more than half of all the data being transmitted in the network.
"So when you employ these small cells, don't think of a uniform ubiquitous small-cell coverage across a certain area, like Soho in London," he said. "Instead look at it as a surgical placement of small cells precisely where they are required to satisfy the demand of those extreme one percent of users."
He said the technology was now able to detect where that demand was located down to the individual building. "If the network operator can just satisfy the demands of one percent they've doubled the effective capacity of their whole network."
