Site Power

Challenges

Site power supply has always been an issue for base station deployment projects. For both rural and urban scenarios, there exist different difficulties:

For Rural Areas

● Far away from grid facility, hard to get power resource

● Highly relying on Diesel Generator, resulting in several problems

- High expense on fossil fuel;

- Air pollution;

- Security issues: stealing fuel happened in remote areas

● High labor cost: it is expensive for an engineer getting to the sites.

For Urban Areas

● City electricity supply is not stable in most of developing countries.

- For example, in Pakistan, enterprises suffered from power failure 75 times in one month.

● Limited space for power supply equipment

● Security concerns: requirement on video surveillance, remote management system
