Technology_DAS & Small Cells

Arrow

Providing additional capacity in hyper dense areas or covering unserved ones, complementing current macro base stations deployments.

Small Cells and Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) are forms of network densification. Instead of providing coverage with high power base stations, Cellnex provides tailored coverage with a system of distributed radios and antennas. This allows outstanding mobile connectivity to spots where large numbers of users are concentrated, such as stadiums, skyscrapers, shopping malls, crowded outdoor areas or airports. These solutions also provide excellent coverage to underground places like tunnels, car parks or railway stations. We have vast experience deploying multi-operator systems that can be used by all the operators and subscribers.

Product detail

Distributed Antenna System (DAS) is a means of propagation of wireless communication, that amplifies and transports any wireless signal; so do so called small cells. A DAS is protocol agnostic; it can transport any wireless signal be it from one of the mobile operators, the signals of public safety networks, private networks, portable radio’s, etc. In this sense, a DAS is a building utility like any other. From the landlord’s perspective it is a generic building facility; from the tenants or users perspective it is a natural service capability of ‘his’ building or venue. With a DAS, a building meets the expectations of a demanding public.
Cellnex plays the role of a real neutral host and manages the complete life cycle of the solution: permits, design, installation, commissioning, operation and maintenance (O&M), and service quality assurance.

Cellnex deploys multi-operator solutions, so that a common telecom infrastructure can be used by different MNOs. Mobile operators are the license holders and therefore own the frequencies. The alignment with them is a specialty that requires a lot of experience and a deep knowledge of radio networks. Our vast experience and our role of coordination reduce the time to market while providing an excellent quality of service. Sharing infrastructure results in an improvement in cost efficiency and minimises the visual impact. The open model allowed by Cellnex is beneficial for all engaged parties and provides universal service to all users, regardless of which MNO are they subscribers.

We want events at the Wanda Metropolitano to guarantee great connectivity. The high quality connection with the Cellnex DAS project has been key to achieving this. We want our fans to enjoy, upload and download reaching speeds that would normally be hard to achieve in a football stadium with 68,000 spectators. We want them to enjoy and share their experiences on their devices anywhere in the world.

The number of train passengers in the Netherlands will increase by at least 30 percent in the next twenty years. That also means that more people in the train will need mobile coverage and internet. With this step, we kill two birds with one stone: we create an important condition for running more trains, and it helps telecom providers and transporters to ensure that all those people in the train will soon have even better mobile coverage.

Saba has made a firm commitment to digitizing its business. We believe it is key to establish relationships and alliances with leading tech providers such as Cellnex. Our challenge was to to adapt to the needs of a car park with various underground levels to cover. The fact we provide coverage and connectivity for our customers in our underground car parks clearly improves and expands the service we provide our customers.

We are pleased to have worked with Cellnex Telecom for this project. This is part of a long-term plan for us to improve connectivity around the Etihad Campus. Cellnex has a track record in the installation, management and maintenance of mobile network communications. This project will allow all those that visit our stadium to benefit from reliable 4G, as well as the prospect of even faster 5G signal when it is available on their devices. We know how important connectivity is to our fans and we are constantly looking for new ways for them to capture and share their experiences at the Etihad Stadium.
