A study has been launched into potentially using overhead wires to mount small cells and wireless antennas on.
The feasibility study will focus on the location of the antennas and also how the equipment will be mounted on the railway equipment.
The impact on design will also be considered by the study, as well as installation and maintenance of both the overhead wire equipment and also the wireless antennas.
The study will also give the main requirements for a safe location, design, installation and maintenance of any equipment mounted to the overhead wire equipment.
Mott MacDonald was commissioned by the Department for Transport to explore the
feasibility of utilising OLE structures to mount small cells and wireless antennas.
The full details of the feasibility study can be found by clicking here.
