Major wireless carriers and infrastructure providers are deploying small cells to meet the demand for faster delivery of more data and video. Most of the time, hundreds to thousands of nodes are deployed at once, in addition to a fiber backhaul network, to achieve desired coverage, capacity, and signal propagation. These programs are complex and can involve hundreds of staff, high-volumes of materials, and many concurrent deployment sites across the country. To scale small cells successfully, wireless carriers and infrastructure providers benefit from a distributed infrastructure deployment model that emphasizes:
- Data-driven tools for efficient evaluation of numerous sites
- Easy data sharing with utilities, municipalities, and permitting agencies
- Flexible deployment teams to handle fluctuations without costly impacts
- Dedicated national resources to ensure effective, expert coordination
