SCF announced the winners of the SCF Industry Awards 2023 at an awards ceremony during Small Cells World Summit in London. The SCF Industry Awards is independent awards event supporting technical innovation in, and the deployment of agile, cost-effective, scalable, cellular infrastructure and solutions by established and emerging service providers.
Towers & Cells
Small Cells World Summit takes place this month with strong focus on generating value and the sustainability of networks. Registrations are open for SCWS 2023, taking place in London on 23 – 24 May
Sateliot has launched the first satellite of a new LEO constellation to enhance 5G IoT coverage by merging satellite and terrestrial connectivity. The company aims for global coverage and massive IoT adoption with its innovative constellation.
Lynk Global has signed its second commercial contract with Telecel Group in Africa to provide 100% coverage for Vodafone Ghana’s 31 million subscribers using Lynk’s innovative “space-based cell towers” technology. The partnership will extend rural coverage, ensure service resiliency, and support IoT devices, among other benefits.
Investors seeking to maximize their profits from the potential of 5G should consider a multi-pronged approach and invest in companies that provide 5G network equipment, tower infrastructure, semiconductors, and hyperscalers as well as 5G mobile network operators. Here are the top companies across the sectors that are leading global public/private network rollouts.
To augment 5G network coverage, the European Commission has commissioned Cellnex to deliver six projects, including four inter-country transport pathways linking Portugal, Spain, and France.
Neutral host operators, Freshwave and Cellnex, are becoming more integral to telco service rollout plans across Europe. In the UK, for instance, Freshwave is rolling out London’s first-ever shared infrastructural 5G small cells. Moreover, multiple 5G deals in Spain and France have been handed to Cellnex along ‘cross-border corridors.’
Indian mobile phone operators are expected to at least double their investments in network security, with the 5G rollout expected to spark a surge in network vulnerabilities, which assume critical importance, especially for enterprises
While India’s telecom department is all set for 5G rollout, the country’s aviation security regulator, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), has raised concerns over the apparent interference of 5G C-Band spectrum with radio altimeters in airplanes.
The Federal Aviation Administration has permitted Verizon and AT&T to turn on their C-band spectrum at additional airports.
5G C-Band rollout halted by DOT to protect potential interference with airplane radio altimeters on request from FAA and U.S. airlines.
