Alpha Wireless, a global leader in antenna solutions, today announced a licensing agreement with Bigbelly, a world leader in public space waste solutions, to offer a turnkey 5G cell site solution with integrated antenna, mast, connectors and enclosure. This complete site enclosure kit features the innovative Bigbelly Telebelly waste and recycling platform designed to host and conceal network equipment. 

As 5G roll-outs escalate worldwide, network operators require new ways to densify site deployments for faster, simpler scaling. This need is particularly critical in urban and suburban environments where traditional macrocell site build-outs have become difficult, driving a demand for smaller form factors and more aesthetically pleasing concealment solutions. With an integrated, multi-purpose enclosure, operators and neutral hosts can quickly and discreetly deploy radio access network (RAN) equipment in public spaces. 

The turnkey site enclosure kit can be configured with various Alpha Wireless antenna options, such as ultra-compact antennas for urban small cells or shared tri-sector antennas for macrocell deployments, supporting up to three operators in one neutral host site. In addition to the antenna and mast, each Telebelly can accommodate six radios plus cabling, with co-location capabilities for multiple enclosures per site. This scalable solution enables network operators worldwide to expand deployments to deliver improved connectivity experiences in high traffic areas where coverage is most needed.
