Small cells are an easier solution to implement in cities and neighborhood struggling with their wireless connectivity. Austin, Texas is trying to improve their network without distracting from Austin’s legendary weirdness. Small Cell Networks and DAS are easier to implement, and the best part is that they’re almost totally camouflaged when concealed.
One strategy is adding small cell streetscape poles that expand coverage and increase network capacity in densely populated areas where towers are not feasible or able to accommodate heavy-user traffic. These small cells are often inconspicuously installed on existing right-of-way street signs, telephone poles, or streetlights. They can also increase voice and data capacity for high-traffic venues like stadiums, convention centers, universities, hotels, and resorts. Better still, multiple small cells can provide greater capacity to a geographic site than a traditional tower while blending in aesthetically.
