Routine deployment of small cells is dependent on overcoming the permitting hurdles. Efforts to streamline the permitting process have met with mixed results. One proven way to minimize the permitting hurdle is to place the small cells on aerial strand rather than poles. However, true routine deployment requires a solution to the powering challenge. This webinar discusses how utilizing the strand for locating, powering and in some cases backhaul can speed the process in small cell deployment.
Key topics in this webinar include:
- An overview of the strand and aerial cabling – how much, where it’s located, regulatory rules
- A description of small cell powering requirements – voltage, power, backup
- An explanation of strand-mounted powering solutions for copper and coax cables
