The role of antenna quality in small cell and 5G deployments

August 8, 2018

While the importance of fiber, spectrum availability and ease of siting are often discussed in network equipment deployments, one overlooked factor is the impact that antenna quality has on the efficiency, effectiveness and total cost of ownership of such deployments.

Here are three ways that antenna quality impacts small cell deployment:

-Quality antennas have fewer impairments and failures, reducing TCO. The worst-case scenario for antennas is complete failure, which means they must be replaced.
