PeakNet works with carriers, jurisdictions, homeowner associations and community development districts to find the best solutions to meet wireless network needs. Collocation on existing utility infrastructure helps reduce the proliferation of towers, can be less intrusive in a neighborhood, and help preserve community character – all while offering the seamless wireless service that we have all come to rely on.
Uninterrupted coverage used to be a matter of convenience, but today connectivity is crucial to the way we live, work, and access public safety systems. Collocations on existing infrastructure can offer access to challenging siting areas where few other options exist. This can add capacity and coverage – even in times of high demand and natural disasters.
Prepping for 5G networks and the Internet of Things
The newest generation of wireless technology, 5G, holds the promise of transforming the way we live and work—with smart cities, autonomous vehicles, and immersive educational systems, not to mention dramatically quicker downloads and greater access to information. To build the dense networks needed for 5G networks, small cells on utility poles and in the public right-of-way will be a crucial component.
Public safety and E911
From the accuracy of pinpointing your location when making a 911 call, to nodes within street lamps alerting police to car accidents, to first responders sending videos and photos to emergency rooms prior to arrival, mobile devices can be a lifeline in emergencies. Fast, flexible systems and powerful carrier signals are essential in keeping the public safe through connected services.
