This presentation will review mounting options for 5G antennas, which includes options for both Macro sites as well as Small Cell Sites. For Macro sites, we will review the available options to reinforce existing mounts and to add new mounts that can handle the increased loading from 5G antennas. For Small Cell sites, will explore the primary factors driving the design of these pole attachments, including wind, weight, thermal and radio frequency considerations. By implementing universal options, we can help insure our industry can keep up with the expected demand and help carry our nation into the 5G revolution.
