ConcealFab is a privately held Inc. 5000 company headquartered in Colorado Springs, CO. We engineer and manufacture infrastructure mounting and concealment solutions for 4G and 5G deployments as well as products that minimize passive intermodulation (PIM). ConcealFab’s resounding success and rapid growth result from our partnership with Operators, utilities, and multi-billion dollar OEM’s. Our ability to pair engineering ingenuity and manufacturing nimbleness makes us a market leader in the wireless industry. As technology evolves, our team continues to develop innovative solutions that help our customers achieve faster site approval and improve wireless network performance.
POLES & POLE ATTACHMENTS
As carriers are now moving aggressively toward millimeter wave (mmW) 5G technologies, ConcealFab is pivoting its product development and resourcing strategy in parallel. The shift to mmW 5G requires not only ConcealFab’s existing competencies in mechanical, thermal, and aesthetic design, but also a significant upgrade in its RF prowess as mmW spectrum is considerably more sensitive to concealment materials which can cause significant pattern distortion if not properly designed.
THE ZETTABYTE ERA - TRENDS AND ANALYSIS
Annual global IP traffic will pass the zettabyte (1000 exabytes) threshold by the end of 2016, and will reach 2 zettabytes per year by 2019…Traffic from wireless and mobile devices will exceed traffic from wired devices by 2016. By 2016, wired devices will account for 47 percent of IP traffic, and Wi-Fi and mobile devices will account for 53 percent of IP traffic.
AGL: SMALL CELLS: A SMALL SOLUTION TO A BIG PROBLEM
Industry experts have said that the mobile data traffic is projected to grow as much as tenfold by 2019. Considering that mobile networks in North America are already filled to 80 percent capacity, if these predictions are accurate, the networks will implode.
BAYLIN TECHNOLOGIES INC.
With smartphone penetration continuing to increase and the number of wireless connected devices forecast by Cisco to rise to 10 billion by 2016, the wireless infrastructure will have to grow exponentially as well to help off-load the mobile cellular data demand. We believe this exponential growth of data traffic will drive an increasing need for wireless carriers to add not only spectral, but also transmission capacity by installing small cells and distributed antenna systems.
