Small cells may not be as tall as cell towers or even the tallest structure on a city block, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t vulnerable to lightning striks.
Overvoltage surges and transients can bring down sophisticated small cell nodes. Wireless carriers and infrastructure providers need to understand how to protect sensitive 5G mmWave radios and antennae from these threats.
Raycap | STEALTH has released a whitepaper explaining the critical role of surge protection and power distribution in protecting 5G mmWave small cell networks.
The publication explains exactly how power distribution devices combined with surge protective devices (SPDs) keep small cells operational by protecting against real-world disturbances such as lightning.
