How Small Cells Are A Big Deal

Congratulations to Verizon Wireless for the headway they’re making in creating more and better service in neighborhoods across the country.

As our client’s cellular networks are experiencing ever-increasing data usage by their customers, the traditional macro-cell network is reaching its capacity. In an effort to offload that strain and improve system capacity and performance, our clients are deploying small cells. We are proud to have played a part in creating three new small cell towers in Hoffman Estates with Verizon Wireless!

Small Cells are a network of low-powered nodes which are much smaller, and much easier to deploy than the traditional cell site. Small cell networks were first deployed in dense urban areas, but have now expanded to smaller cities and rural areas in an effort to bring the network closer to the customer. Small Cells are installed 15’ to 30’ above ground level. All three small cells deployed in Hoffman Estates are located in neighborhood subdivisions.
