Fiber to the Small Cell
Fiber | Small Cell
Over 25 Small Cells in the public right-of-way on city owned light pole and traffic control structures and wooden utility poles. The project scope was very broad and included aerial and buried fiber in both urban and suburban environments, make-ready engineering and route optimization, pole fielding, aerial, buried and leased OSP design, GPS field work, GIS integration, node structural analysis, 1A letters, power coordination, and permitting.
The challenge was providing field and office engineering for the project that required constant coordination between the owner and client, several municipalities and public works departments, multiple utility companies and other rail and government entities.
The Fullerton Strategy
Fullerton and their client worked closely to navigate approvals from the local jurisdictions, the pole owners, and other entities. Each of these agencies had different processes for submittals that created a variety of logistical and engineering challenges which Fullerton successfully completed. Fullerton acquired all specification documents and communicated with the appropriate entities to ensure final approvals were granted. In addition, Fullerton was responsible for coordination with the local power company for new services to each of the small cell locations. Many meetings were attended and communication was key to the project being successful.
