Future-Proofing Your Remote Radio Head Networks

For mobile operators to remain competitive they must find ways to quickly deploy remote radio head networks to meet their service offering expansion targets before their competitors do.

To make ready for the explosion of mobile traffic, mobile operators are making infrastructure changes to support an ever-increasing consumer appetite for media rich services. They are building new or retrofitting existing wireless networks that will accommodate expanded capacity to support future growth and enable the deployment of next generation networks.

While operators are working to make these improvements, they must also manage capital expenditures and balance rising operational costs to ensure their competitiveness in a fast-changing, high-stakes industry.

One of the most important trends being driven by the need for additional network capacity is the deployment of remote radio head (RRH) architectures. The RRH concept fundamentally changes the way that cell sites are built by deploying remote radio heads closer to the antennas located on cell towers or roof tops. The RRHs are connected via fibre optic and DC power cables to a base band unit (BBU) and a power supply unit (PSU), typically located inside a shelter or cabinet.
