Position Paper – The Critical Role of Surge Protection and Power Distribution in Protecting 5G mmWave Small Cell Networks

Overvoltage surges and transients can bring down sophisticated small cell nodes. Wireless carriers and infrastructure providers need to understand how to protect sensitive 5G mmWave radios and antennae from these threats. Read how in this paper, from a company with decades of experience. The CTIA expects more than 700,000 new small cells to be rolled out by 2026 in the US. With so many new sites to deploy and run, carriers need very high reliability and low operating costs. Understand exactly how AC power distribution devices combined with surge protective devices (SPDs) keep small cells operational by protecting against real-world disturbances such as lightning.
