OH-DAS?

STEALTH recently completed DAS concealments for Ohio State University just in time for football season.

For the DAS concealment project, STEALTH provided (12) side-mounted boxes for the Horseshoe Stadium in Columbus, OH.

Of the (12) boxes, STEALTH provided two side mounted boxes located under the scoreboard that are painted black; two radius side mounted located above the “Ball On” sign and the “Down” sign also painted black; four single tunnel boxes that are painted a single tan color; and four split tunnel boxes that are mounted beside an existing time clock and contain a decal with the section number.

Take a look at these awesome DAS concealments!

LTE Boom!

LTE deployment boomed in the second quarter. T-Mobile, AT&T, and Sprint all reported massive second quarter deployments.

According to an article on AGL’s website, T-Mobile upped their LTE deployment from seven major metropolitan markets in March to 116 major metropolitan markets by the end of July. They exceeded their mid-year goal of covering 100 million people. As of the end of July, T-Mobile covered a whooping 156 million people!

AT&T also expanded their LTE deployment. AT&T currently reaches over 225 million people and is on schedule to serve over 270 million people by year’s end! They will also expand their LTE coverage to over 300 markets.

Sprint’s LTE footprint is also growing. Sprint announced they deployed LTE to an additional 6,500 sites in the second quarter for a total of 20,000 sites in a 151 cities! They are hoping to reach their goal of 200 million people covered by the end of 2013.

What does all this mean for antenna concealment? It means now more than ever, antenna concealment is needed! As new sites are built, and old sites are upgraded for new LTE equipment, STEALTH will be there to provide our customers with the latest and greatest antenna concealment.

Flashback Friday: Remember this Rooftop Concealment?

With over 20 years in the antenna concealment business, STEALTH has seen antenna concealment evolve.

One of the biggest changes in antenna concealments revolves around rooftop concealment. Rooftop concealments are no longer composed of wooden boxes, but today are composed of RF friendly material that can be painted virtually any color and textured to match any surface.

Take a look at this rooftop concealment located in San Diego, CA that STEALTH manufactured back in 2000.rooftop concealment

DAS…Not Just for Football

With football season right around the corner, many stadiums are rushing to upgrade their distributed antenna systems.

Did you know that American Football stadiums aren’t the only stadiums installing DAS? Many futbol, or as we American’s call it, soccer, stadium’s are also starting to install distributed antenna systems.

In the past, many MLS soccer teams have had a hard time retaining their own stadium, but Kansas City Sporting is starting a new trend in MLS stadiums. The Sporting is drawing fans in and retaining them on their own merit.

Kansas City Sporting Park was built in 2010 and 2011 and costed an estimated $200 million.

Part of the construction included installing DAS. According to the Kansas City Business Journal, “The stadium is outfitted with Wi-Fi, a ‘distributed antenna system’ and other in-stadium technology to improve the fans’ ability to communicate with the team and share in the game-day experience.It’s a reversal from the team dictating the fan’s experience, Knight said, to the fans dictating the team’s experience.”

So now you can Tweet that “Goooooooooooal” even faster than before!

 

 

Redding’s Newest Residence

Redding, CT’s newest resident is a 180 foot monopole concealment.

The monopole concealment is installed, but not yet operational. The monopole currently houses AT&T antennas.

In an article in the Redding Post, “First Selectman Natalie Ketcham said on Monday that David Vivian of New Cingular Wireless emailed that the tower is stacked and all of AT&T’s installation is complete. However, Mr. Vivian said the utility company has not yet completed its installation, ‘so the tower is not yet operational. We expect it may be another month or so, although this is something beyond our control.'”

The monopole was originally designed to be a flagpole, but due to noise concerns surrounding the lanyards hitting the pole the town decided to against it.

STEALTH designed and fabricated the top section of the monopole including: a steel support pipe, concealment cylinders, and mounting hardware.
