Big ugly cell tower or flag pole? You tell me. As I wrote just a couple days ago
that Alcatel-Lucent, the European communications giant, has created
lightRadio. This 2 ½ inch by 2 ½ inch square is the technology that everyone
said would never come about. The squares are programmable to 2G, 3G and
4G and can be stacked to create as much power as is needed. The effective
range is about 500 meters and they will fit into a lamp post.
Is this new breakthrough going to eliminate all the cell towers. Absolutely not.
Most cell towers are used for longer range cellular service. This technology is
going to be used mostly in rural areas to fix the dead spots, you know, “Can
you hear me now”, spots.
So what is the problem? Sounds all good. Well keep your cell lease handy.
You'll need it for reference when you get that phone call from either
BlackDotWireless or MD7. Both of these firms are in the lease optimization
business. Let me say this in plain English. These two firms are hired by cell
carriers and are paid commissions based on how much they can lower your
cell site lease payment. Yes, renegotiate your cell site lease.
Because these lightRadio cubes are so much cheaper to manufacture, install
and maintain, they will eventually blanket the US for starters. Inevitably, some
of the 250,000 to 300,00 cell sites around the country will experience either
decommissioning or a reduction in rents.
You may want to do a little research, then get back to me. Youtube has some
great videos and Google has a plethora of articles on the subject.
