A small cell is a cellular base station that transmits and receives defined RF signals with low power in a compact solution. Ideal for densely populated environments like venues, residential streets, crowded commercial areas, and cities, small cells work seamlessly with macro cells to increase capacity, speeds, and bandwidth smart applications and new technologies like 5G require.

We understand how vital small cells are for increasing cellular coverage and data transfer speeds. At Tessco, we have the solutions and expertise to support, simplify, and streamline small cell deployments and to help you deliver a reliable indoor or outdoor network that provides seamless service for all users.
Small Cells Can Offer
Flexibility in Urban Environments
Harness Shared Spectrum
Increased Speed & Reliability
Deployment Methods Enabled by Small Cells
Leveraging fiber for front haul capacity, mobile network operators (MNO) can centralize multiple baseband units in a single location at a cell site or a centralized location in generally dense environments. Multiple small cells are connected to streetlights or utility poles via fiber to the central location.
Network functions are virtualized in the cloud, NFV. Thus, centralized baseband units can use commercial off-the-shelf servers to handle routine processing, saving costs on hardware while increasing capacity and simplifying network processing.
Outdoor Macro & Small Cell Network
Small Cell Solutions in the Public Right of Way
Small cell networks are often discretely attached to infrastructure in the public right of way like utility poles or streetlights, creating an ideal solution to meet growing data demands in a more precise and targeted way.
Tessco brings instant access to the most in-depth product offering in the industry as well as engineering expertise to help identify, design, and develop the right solution to fit your specific communication needs.
From the selection of products and development of a bill of materials (BOM) to the guaranteed price and delivery confirmation, we are committed to finding you the right products to ensure the job gets done right and in a timely manner.
