Increasing capacity at street level

Cellnex Hosted Location enables Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) to enhance outdoor capacity and roll out 5G connectivity in built-up areas by placing Small Cells on street furniture – on CCTV columns, lamp posts, advertising hoardings, kiosks and more. This swift and simple alternative to building new towers or rooftop sites, delivers the coverage and capacity exactly where it is needed – at street level and with line of sight to mobile devices.

Built on our rights to use street assets for communications equipment, this managed deployment service eliminates the complexities of dealing with multiple parties, permitting, and traffic management. Which means your deployment can be operational in a matter of weeks – compared to the many months or years it typically takes to deploy a macro site.

As a neutral host, we provide access on equitable terms, in the most cost effective way. And, with a single point of contact in place, all operational sites are fully supported by our service desk.

The result is the smooth, efficient provision of the network you need, where you need it.
