The second half of 2013 will see a bigger boom in small cells for both Verizon and AT&T.
The small cells will be deployed to LTE networks in a total of 497 markets, according to AGL.
AGL states, “More than 200 LTE small cells will be deployed in the next six months to enhance localized capacity and coverage in business districts and shopping malls, wherever there is concentrated traffic. Because they are only the size of a mini refrigerator, small cells can be deployed on lampposts, utility poles and building walls.”
AT&T’s small cells will be focused more on the outdoors where DAS is not the most cost-effective solution.
STEALTH provides concealments for both small cell sites and DAS sites. A boom in small cell sites could mean a boom in small cell concealments.
