News Innovative Emitel’s solution in Miasteczko Wilanów

Emitel, in agreement with the authorities of the Wilanów District Office has installed two modern mobile communications antenna installations in Miasteczko Wilanów. The solution has been designed with particular attention to aesthetics and harmonious fit in with the existing architectural layout of Wilanów.

The residents of Miasteczko Wilanów could observe the installation of 2 street poles, each 8 meters high. These are modern installations used for mobile communications, which, in addition to their dedicated functionalities, are also a decoration of the place where they stand. They are located at the intersection of Oś Królewska/Sarmacka Streets and at the intersection of Klimczaka/Sarmacka Streets. Emitel plans to place similar antennas in other locations.

What is the innovation and attractiveness of the mounted installations, beside integrating with the architecture of their place of installation?

Miasteczko Wilanów is constantly evolving, currently it consists of almost 37 thousand inhabitants and many developers are still carrying out their residential construction projects. There are also plans for another projects related to the development of education and culture. The development of buildings must be followed by the development of telecommunications infrastructure, all the more so as the needs and expectations of the residents themselves are increasing. For that reason, the construction of installations that will improve the availability of cellular networks in Miasteczko Wilanów is an investment which is necessary, planned and expected by the inhabitants themselves. At the same time the Wilanów District authorities pay particular attention to the installation of such solutions. They must not only meet the highest technical and safety standards but at the same time fit with their aesthetics in with the local architecture.

Each of the installations at a given location will perform the function of increasing the coverage and improving the parameters of the cellular signal, thus increasing the network capacity of all mobile operators. What does it mean in practice? This is primarily to increase the speed and availability of mobile broadband internet, – said Piotr Guziewicz – Director of the Office for Network Planning and Service Development of Emitel S.A. – This solution will also help to minimize the risk of restrictions or lack of network bandwidth that may adversely affect the comfort of use of high quality multimedia services. This applies both to mobile applications and services, as well as in particular multimedia services or media streaming services such as Youtube or Netflix. – added Piotr Guziewicz.

Residents and owners of commercial premises located on the lower floors can count on improving the availability of mobile networks within their premises.

These are not all solutions that Emitel can propose based on the infrastructure built by the Company. In the next stages, it will be possible to launch new services in the field of Smart Cities, e.g. systems improving residents’ safety, monitoring air pollution, occupancy of parking spaces, current location of public transport vehicles or the filling of waste bins.

The advantage of the solution currently tested by mobile operators, which appeared on the streets of Wilanów, is the significantly better aesthetics compared to the most commonly used solutions installed e.g. on the roofs of residential buildings. In addition, substantially smaller dimensions of the devices and structures allow them to be integrated into the existing architecture in the locations where conventional solutions are not possible. The installation shared by all mobile operators allows also to effectively reduce the number of antennas within the housing estate. What is important is that it is a completely safe solution, meeting all applicable environmental standards. It is worth noting that locating this type of installations in a residential environment means that the phones of users within their range can transmit with much less power than in the case of having to transmit to a conventional base station hundreds of meters away.

The first mobile operator has already started testing and more will start their tests in the near future. Each access point performs functions of transmitting and receiving radio signal of mobile phone networks in the 800MHz, 900MHz and optional 1800MHz bands in 3G and 4G technologies. This provides support for voice calls and mobile broadband internet. The antenna installations have been connected to the networks of mobile operators via fibre optic link. The transmitters’ power is several dozen times less than that of typical tower- or roof-mounted solutions. Similar solutions are already visible in the estates and streets of Western European cities and in the United States.
