RF Hotspots

Leading experts expect mobile data demand to grow faster over the next five years, in both percentage and absolute terms, than it has over the past few years, even with the blistering smartphone adoption rate. To meet this tremendous growth, the mobile network will need to ‘densify’ and scale accordingly.  The physical tools that RF engineers and wireless carriers have at their disposal – whether it’s more macro towers, small cells, DAS solutions or Wi-Fi deployments, to name a few – will need to be deployed intelligently throughout the metro landscape.

Given this demand, Zayo has identified hundreds of potential RF hotspots (stadiums, convention centers, high-rise hotels, etc.) that are near Zayo’s network. Click on the below metros to see RF hotspot locations where Zayo can provide effective backhaul and turn-key small cell solutions.

RF Solutions

The physical tools that RF engineers and wireless carriers have at their disposal – including additional macro towers, plus small cells, DAS solutions, Wi-Fi deployments, to name a few – will need to be deployed intelligently throughout the metro landscape. Both indoor and outdoor, from stadiums to malls, Zayo can enable a more efficient and effective densification of the mobile network.

RF Hotspot Deployment Process

Zayo proposes a high-level, 3-step process to deploy dramatically more mobile access points:

  1. Identify the RF Hotspot – the radio frequency challenge location
  2. Locate a provider that can do all of the following:
    • Has proximate and available fiber
    • Secure underlying rights
    • Install radio equipment and antennae
    • Manage the site(s) to ensure uptime
  3. Evaluate available deployment options – from a new macro tower to small cells and options in between. This includes assessing cost and performance, and taking into consideration RF performance and interference, radio equipment, real estate, fiber and maintenance.
