Transparent glass 4G/5G antenna for enhanced network densification

3 major challenges when deploying mobile networks in dense urban areas

Data bandwidth

Not only is the volume of mobile data traffic continuously rising, but it is set to skyrocket over the next 3-5 years with the advent of 5G, putting mobile network operators under CAPEX pressure.

Urban coverage

Higher frequency bands for 5G mean more challenges for ensuring coverage, especially in dense urban areas where capacity will be needed but where stringent EMF limits apply.

Deployment limitations

While small cells are a good solution for improving capacity, they have many drawbacks:

  • Finding locations for new antennas is difficult
  • Deploying fibre and electricity outdoors is costly
  • Urban planning regulations may limit options for using small cells

We are removing barriers to 4G/5G network densification by installing our WAVEATTOCH transparent glass antenna indoors (against the glazing)


  • Supports increased traffic while reducing CAPEX pressure

  • Complies with EMF limits

  • Glass antenna installed indoors

What is it?

WAVEATTOCH is a transparent glass 4G/5G antenna designed to improve outdoor network densification and installed indoors (against the glazing)
WAVEATTOCH is a stealth transparent antenna that can be invisibly installed indoors in line with urban aesthetics and EMF limits

WAVEATTOCH key benefits

Highly compatible with urban environments

Integrates seamlessly into the surrounding environment. Can be fitted to any window or wall.

Optimized radio performance

Antennas at lower heights enable better network densification in dense urban areas.

Lower EMFs

Low power usage means lower EMF levels.

Case study

DOCOMO

NTT docomo, Japan’s leading mobile operator, launched a service area expansion for 4G LTE mobile phones using glass antennas.

How it works?

WAVEATTOCH is installed indoors behind any window, eliminating the need for scaffolding or work in the street
Electric cable Optical fiber cable RRU Coax cable
Easy access to fibre and power

Fibre and power come from inside the building. No need to bring fibre and power outdoors.

Easy
rollout

Indoor installation means no scaffolding or permits needed.

Indoor
electronics

Simpler electronics and smaller, lighter enclosures (IP44).
