Mobile cell sites

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Mobile cell sites are infrastructures transportable on trucks, allowing fast and easy installation in restricted spaces. Their use is strategic for the rapid expansion of cellular networks putting into service point-to-point radio connections, as well as supporting sudden increases of mobile traffic in case of extraordinary events (trade fairs, sports events and concerts, emergencies, catastrophic events, etc.). Mobile cell sites require neither civil works nor foundations. The mobile units have been designed to be a temporary solution, but if requested, they can be transformed easily into a permanent station.

Different kinds of mobile cell sites[edit]

There are several different kinds of mobile cell sites, every one of which has different usage characteristics. Following, there are some examples.

Rapid-deployment units (RDU)[edit]

RDUs are mobile radio base stations transportable on trucks. Their use is strategic for the rapid expansion of cellular networks.

A rapid deployment flanged pole is a mobile radio base station infrastructure transportable on truck, allowing fast and easy installation in restricted spaces. The antenna supporting pole, with climbing ladder up to the summit, is fixed to the main base frame and is composed of cylindrical flanged sections integrated by two or three sets of guys with a standard height of up to 30 meters. The flanged pole mobile station, installable in eight hours, does not require civil works or foundations, and is complete, including lateral ballast concrete weights and a working platform in checkered plate.

A radio station kit is an integrated radio base station RDU in which the equipment housing is a special 20” container equipped to contain, during transportation, all the station infrastructures, assembly accessories, radiant systems, storage batteries, electrical and radio equipment. It is a structure which can be quickly and easily transported and assembled on site, without the need of civil works or foundations and suitable for any environment.

KIST: an integrated radio base station (RDU) which can be quickly and easily transported and assembled on site

A rapid deployment compact kitstat is a flanged pole RDU which allows easy and fast erection in narrow sites, without any need of foundation or civil works. The antenna supporting structure supplied complete with climbing ladder and anchored to the steelwork base frame, is a flanged pole composed by tubular flanged sections with a height up to 30 m and two or three steel guys series.

A quickrawland with polygonal pole is an RDU which allows an easy and fast erection in narrow sites, without any need of foundation or civil works. It is provided with a polygonal pole with a height up to 30 m; it has a climbing ladder with rigid anchor line (EN353-1) and vertical fixing system for feeders and service cables.

Cell on wheels[edit]

Cells on wheels (COW) are telecom infrastructures, placed on trailer approved for road use, towed by heavy goods vehicles for loads of up to 3500 kg. These mobile radio base stations guarantee full operation in just one day and in restricted spaces.

Mobile radio base stations with flanged pole are mobile support structures composed of a special trailer with retracting stabilizers approved for road use. The antenna supporting pole, with climbing ladder up to the summit, is fixed to the main base frame and it is composed of cylindrical flanged sections integrated by two or three sets of guys with a standard height of up to 20 meters. The flanged pole mobile station, installable in eight hours, does not require civil works or foundations, and is complete of lateral ballast concrete weights and a working platform in checkered plate.

A rapid deployment self-mounting pole is a mobile supporting structure corresponds to a special two-axle trailer with telescopic stabilizers approved for road traffic. The antenna supporting pole, with standard height of up to 20 m, is made of aluminium and consists of three telescopic tubular elements. Installation is easy and fast, and is carried out with manual winches.

MTUC: Compact self-mounting pole

Another RDU is a mobile cell site with self-mounting pole; that can be towed by heavy goods vehicles for loads of up to 7500 kg. The antenna supporting pole, with a standard height of up to 20 m, is made of aluminium and consists of three telescopic tubular elements. Installation is easy, fast and is carried out by means of manual winches.

MTCO: mobile cell site with self-mounting pole

Mobile station on trailer is a mobile stations with telescopic mast are portable structures, towed by heavy goods vehicles for loads of up to 12000 kg. The antenna supporting pole, with a standard height of up to 30 m, is made of steel and consists of three telescopic tubular elements. Installation is easy, fast and is carried out with manual or electric winches.

SRTA: mobile cell site with telescopic mast up to 30 m

Cell on truck[edit]

A cell on truck is a particular kind of mobile cell site that is composed of mobile trucks with container and with self-mounting telescopic mast. They are portable structures that guarantee full operation in three hours and in restricted spaces. The steel interface frame is made of galvanized steel beams and is provided with four retracting stabilizers that can be retracted under the container for transport. The equipment and power container, which has a reinforced special 20' box container with two access doors, divided by an intermediate partition to create two separate rooms (E and A). Room A is used for housing the electrical and radio equipment. Room E is used as a power room for housing the generating set; and also, during transport, to contain the radiant systems and accessory components. The antenna supporting pole, with standard height of up to 20 m, is made of aluminium and consists of three telescopic tubular elements. Installation is easy, fast and is carried out with manual winches.
