“Small cell antennas are a key element of our expansion strategy. The new antennas enable us to provide targeted coverage of squares and streets. This will enable us to create more capacity in the inner cities and thus further optimise our network,” says Walter Goldenits, Head of Technology at Telekom Deutschland. “One great additional benefit of the antennas from our Swiss partner is the flexible handling: we can switch over to 5G in just a few simple steps.”
“It was a challenge to develop small cell antennas that support both 4G and 5G technology, and with a small footprint that enables them to be integrated properly into the cityscape,” says Claudia Bartholdi, Product Manager at HUBER+SUHNER.“The SENCITY Urban antennas boast optimised performance and enable flexible installation, which enables the network within urban areas to be switched over to 5G with ease.”
The small cell antennas from HUBER+SUHNER can be installed on public telephone boxes, bus stops, walls or lighting installations. Different types of antennas and housings are available to meet specific needs. These include omnidirectional antennas for market places and directional antennas for narrow streets.
Small cells are required to provide future 4G and 5G coverage in urban areas. In combination with traditional mast locations, small cells provide the network coverage and capacity needed to support an ever-increasing number of wireless devices. SENCITY Urban antennas are very compact and can be easily installed in existing infrastructures. This saves space and enables high-performance future networks.
