Enabling telcos to boost connectivity with small cell sites
Heeding the government’s call to help improve the Philippine’s physical Information and Communications Technology (ICT) infrastructure, Aboitiz InfraCapital ventured into the small cells sites business in addition to its common tower project in 2020.
A small cell network is a series of small low-powered, short-ranged antennas that provide coverage and capacity, meant to work in conjunction with macro cell towers. Small cells are expected to play a key role in the deployment of 5G, which requires antenna density to deliver larger quantities of data at higher speeds.
Telcos and ISPs can co-locate in Aboitiz InfraCapital’s network sites, thereby helping fast-track expansion, increase service reliability, reduce costs, and lessen redundant sites. InfraCap has small cell sites in key urban cities and municipalities such as Lipa-Malvar, Subic, Cebu, Cotabato, and Davao.
This is the first of InfraCap’s digital infrastructure projects meant to help create an enabling environment for the country’s digital transformation.
