Designing a 5G small cell street light pole for the LA Bureau of Street Lighting

Los Angeles Bureau of Street Lighting (BSL) has long pursued an ambitious initiative for smart city services. An important element is based on strengthening wireless services for “constituents, businesses, visitors and for use during emergency situations”. To facilitate new services such as 5G, LA BSL has published established policies, specification and procedures for co-location of cellular sites on streetlight poles. Raycap engineered a small cell streetlight design, based on LA BSL specifications, that provides a path to widespread installation of small cells in Los Angeles and possibly even neighboring cities.
