The Role of Street Furniture in Expanding Mobile Broadband


Demand for mobile broadband is driving the need for small-cell architecture to supplement the macrocellular layer of commercial cellular coverage in today’s 4G networks and for eventual 5G deployments. Street furniture – utility poles, bus-stop enclosures or any other street-level infrastructure that can house wireless equipment – offers highly effective tools in the mobile carriers’ toolboxes to bring their networks closer to their customers, if deployments can be done in an efficient manner. Street furniture can be used to expand the network using small cells, Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS), backhaul and other means to transmit and increase RF coverage to augment macrocellular tower deployments. These infrastructure solutions facilitate network densification under the macrocellular layer in areas where additional capacity is required.
