Power is the forgotten issue with respect to small cell siting. While the prominent obstacles – spectrum, backhaul, and site location – are being addressed, power looms as a potential roadblock to routine deployment. Why? Because a usable source of electricity does not always coincide with the optimal location for the small cell.

Connecting to the power grid is the default solution, but utility costs and logistics can jeopardize business cases and timelines. Fortunately, alternative power solutions such as HFC power over CATV lines and Remote Line Power over telco OSP cables address both the cost and timing issues. Adding these remote power solutions to the planner’s toolbox can help simplify the process and ensure deadlines are met.

This webinar is essential for anyone planning or implementing an outdoor small cell network. It outlines issues with powering small cells, and discusses the alternative remote techniques being used by network providers today.
