The SC-MM08 Line of Cabinets Make it Easy to Comply

One of the main issues confronting a small cell deployment is getting permits for the build and having them approved once the build is completed. Once a site has been identified, the permitting process begins. One of the main hurdles for approval of a permit is approval of the BOM that will be used at a small cell site. Electrical safety is a major concern of municipalities. Having a cabinet that is UL 67 Listed will address these safety concerns. This will facilitate in the approval of site permits as well as having them signed off during final site inspection.

However, how effective are they really?... Read more
Push to Talk (MCPTT) Services for First Responders
As the professional Mobile Communications world grapples with determining the direction for land mobile networks, a small but growing number of mission critical network managers are looking to Mission Critical Push-to-Talk (MCPTT) services for LTE offering Push-to-Talk Over- Cellular (PoC) as an enticing offering for non-public safety needs.  Aging analog LMR (Land Mobile Radio) infrastructure needing replacement or significant upgrades, coupled with limited financial resources make PTT services attractive. MCPTT will likely gain more traction as services meeting 3GPP standard are rolled out beginning in 2017. ... Read more
