The Rise of Small Cells Poles

Given the growth and demands on cellular networks and population density, there has never been more demand on connectivity. With these demands this increased the need for wireless densification. This is being addressed with small cell.

Connected by fiber cables and attached to a pole – existing infrastructure, utility poles or streetlights – small cell poles are small low-powered antennas that built in a network combine to provide coverage to surrounding areas.

So Why Now?

“The use of cellular data demands it” is not the only answer.

Small cell poles can be way more discreet, while still being closer to smartphones and other devices by attaching to streetlamps, etc. Similar to towers, small cells communicate wirelessly over radio waves to send signals to the internet or phones.

One added benefit of small cell poles are because they’re connected with fiber, they are able to handle massive amounts of data at fast speeds. With the race to 5G having begun, small cell poles align parallel with progression and coverage requirements 5G needs.

Since small cell poles can be installed just about anywhere, in many ways they can be more affordable than constructing more conventional towers. Saving money has always been a great reason.
