CommScope devices light poles for metro cell

CommScope-targets-light-poles-for-metro-cellCommScope has devised a new concealment solution that will make deployment of metro cells on street poles much easier.

The new CommScope Metro Cell Concealment Solution features a two-piece design for mounting all the necessary equipment for metro cell operation, making for a total solution. Two aesthetically pleasing enclosures can mount and hide radios, antennas, backhaul termination (wireline or wireless), back-up batteries and other equipment on street poles in units that are more structurally balanced and easier to permit.

“The key to successful metro cell deployments is making the equipment as inconspicuous as possible and installing it at just the right location in dense urban areas,” said Stan Catey, senior vice president and general manager, Cable Products, CommScope.

“Our concealment solution targets some of the most commonly available street furniture available for metro cell deployment—street lighting poles,” added Catey.

The Metro Cell Concealment Solution makes installation easier and more reliable because it can be: Installed without ground-based cabinets and rights of way—the two enclosures occupy much less space than what is allowed in most local requirements; rapidly assembled using a unique mounting system—much of the intricate assembly involving power, filtering and cabling can be performed offsite; and installed in a single work shift, minimizing on-street disruption and the opportunity for error.
