In places where lots of people come together, such as train stations, city centres and event complexes, extra network capacity is often needed. In order to ensure that everyone can continue to make calls and surf the web at these busy locations, small cells are used. Small cellsare small mobile base stations mounted on lampposts, building facades or bus shelters. They have a range of several hundred metres. This enables an operator to improve the speed and capacity of the mobile network in a very targeted way.
VolkerWessels Telecom rolls out small cells at various locations and plans the infrastructure to ensure optimum coverage.
Measuring is key – whether for optimum planning of small cells or to determine the best location for a POP in a new residential neighbourhood. Here, too, we make use of smart technology at VolkerWessels Telecom and think about the environment at the same time.More about smart engineering
