As almost all companies these days must fully support mobile employees who are still expected to fulfill job responsibilities as well as time-sensitive tasks no matter where they are located in the country, wireless connectivity is essential in keeping these individuals connected and engaged. In fact, these days many mobile communications customers are demanding 4G access, forcing Bell Mobility to continuously up the ante on its performance. This has been made possible by the company’s recently revamped cell site.
By leveraging HUBER+SUHNER’s new generation MASTERLINE remote radio head interconnect solutions which are extreme hybrid products that the company’s refers to as “tailored for mobile operators who do not have [their] own tower infrastructure but rent the majority of their tower cell sites…The hybrid solution minimizes the annually recurring rental fee at the one-time cost of a more expensive and complex cable infrastructure,” Bell Mobility was able to seamlessly integrate remote radio head technology directly into its wireless network infrastructure to support much higher data rates while dramatically cutting costs.
According to a recent case study, “Bell Mobility recognized that RRH technology, which uses fiber optic and power links between the base transceiver station and the mast mounted radios / antennas, would provide a cost-effective, low loss, high speed connection and allow for longer distances between the base station and antenna sites. Importantly, RRH technology allows each transceiver station to handle more antennas which leads to wider and more consistent coverage. “
While traditionally network operators select a well known equipment OEM to assist them with installing their cell site, Bell Mobility stands apart from the pack as it completes its own installation programs. The company has even devised a way to increase visibility into each cell site which makes it easier to pinpoint a problem, helping to lower overall costs.
Additionally, scalability is increased which allows new performance enhancements to be implemented within the new installation. This solution even minimizes the annually recurring rental fee at the one-time cost of a more expensive and complex cable infrastructure.
However, all of this would be impossible without the help from HUBER+SUHNER. With its proven technology making it a world class supplier, the wireless connectivity provider offers a wide portfolio of remote radio installation solutions including a multi riser cable with a distribution box, a multi riser cable compact divider, and re-use corrugated copper cables.
