5G in the Access Network

POWERING AND PROTECTING
5G CELL SITES

Delivering the ultra-low latency and high bandwidth at frequencies most compatible with 5G requires dense networks with far more cell sites than existing 3G and 4G architectures. These sites require powerful computing resources that potentially could double energy consumption at each tower and fundamentally change the demands placed on the power and cooling infrastructure.

Reliable, efficient DC power systems are critical to 5G network expansion and the reduction of OpEx across those 5G sites. In addition, those power-hungry 5G radios present practical challenges. Without the necessary power boost, the power drop from the base of the tower to the radio often forces a battery draw that could leave the site unprepared for an unexpected outage. We have solutions for all these needs, as well as the cabinets and enclosures to protect 5G equipment from the elements, vandalism and theft.

Case Study

Vertiv is enabling a major wireless service provider’s 5G rollout by replacing concrete shelters at the base of existing cell towers with smaller, lightweight steel enclosures that ensure vital electronic equipment is protected from vandalism and environmental damage. The Vertiv™ XTE 802 Series walk-in cabinet (WIC)* is being installed with the proper power system and space for two IT racks, essentially reducing the equipment footprint at the base of the tower while still leaving room to grow.

TECHNOLOGY SOLUTIONS FOR YOUR 5G ACCESS NETWORK CHALLENGES

Need reliable, efficient DC power at existing cell sites

 

Key Considerations
  • Sizing the DC power system to meet current and future requirements
  • Meeting the need for rapid deployment
  • Ensuring no downtime when expanding power and load distribution
  • Improving energy efficiency with upgrade or retrofit

 

 

Additional sites to support 5G are dramatically increasing power consumption

 

Key Considerations
  • Monitoring site usage and power consumption
  • Ensuring DC power systems offer efficient operation without compromising reliability
  • Evaluating viability of alternative energy sources
  • Scaling for future growth

 

 

Power drop from base to remote radio head is forcing unwanted battery draws

 

 

Physical security of equipment against elements, theft and vandalism

 

Key Considerations
  • Understanding climate and thermal management requirements
  • Evaluating nature of human threats and potential costs compared to enhanced security
