Enhance Connectivity, Livability, and City Operations 

As cellular usage and data consumption continue to increase at exponential rates, mobile network operators must invest in densifying their networks.

Upgrades to mobile networks improve the constituent and visitor experience and help cities operate more efficiently and effectively. However, additional wireless infrastructure can clutter streetscapes and impact aesthetics. Managing relationships with multiple operators also increases the workload for city departments.

Meet Multiple Smart City Goals

increase small cell

American Tower simplifies and accelerates broadband expansion for municipalities. We provide the infrastructure, relationships, and continuous innovation needed to improve broadband coverage and build the foundation necessary to become a smart city.

American Tower Smart Fusion Poles provide an aesthetically pleasing small cell solution that blends seamlessly into the existing streetscape and hides wireless equipment and antennas from view. Replacing traditional streetlights with Smart Fusion Poles opens the door to using existing rights-of-way locations to provide operators with shared infrastructure opportunities.

Alleviate Administrative and Operational Burdens

Significantly reduce the time and effort required to negotiate multiple wireless permits and manage infrastructure projects, so you can reallocate these city resources to other priority projects.

American Tower specializes in shared infrastructure leasing arrangements and efficient deployments, and we have longstanding relationships with all major mobile operators. We also have the project management expertise needed to quickly install large numbers of smart poles, with minimal disruptions to pedestrian and vehicle traffic.

Develop a Comprehensive Wireless Strategy

Go beyond smart poles to develop a holistic, multitier urban wireless strategy that enhances coverage where stakeholders live and work:
