Tower Coordinator Recommendation

Application Number: 2018100517 Type: Colocation Received (date): 10/09/2018


Revised: 10/22/2018
Applicant: AT&T
Site Name/Location: Watkins Mill High School / 10301 Apple Ridge Rd., Gaithersburg
Zoning Standard: R-200 Property Owner: Board of Education
Description: Attach six antennas and 12 remote radio heads (RRH) at 100' on a 120'
monopole. Equipment to be installed within a proposed 15' x 24' compound along with a 250-
gallon propane tank and a 15kW generator.
Tower Coordinator Recommendation: Recommended on condition the applicant obtain Board
of Education approval for a lease agreement. Recommendation is subject to compliance with
all applicable laws.

Signature: Date: 10/29/2018


Impact on land-owning agency: N/A
Existing or future public safety telecommunications facilities and plans: N/A
Colocation options: Verizon and T-Mobile are currently located on this existing 120' tall
monopole.
Implications to surrounding area: The MCAtlas zoning map (below left) shows the property
and the location of the monopole (circled) along with the general vicinity. The photo (below
right) from an October 16, 2018, site visit shows the monopole with an arrow indicating the
approximate attachment height of the proposed antennas.

Attachments: Application
Comments: Equipment shelter and associated ground equipment will be installed within a new
15' x 24' compound/equipment area on an 8' x 14' concrete pad surrounded by an 8' wood fence.
A 250-gallon propane tank and a 15kW generator will also be installed within the proposed

7/11/16
compound area.

Adding another antenna array would have minimal visual impact on the surrounding area.

All proposed antennas meet the length and volume requirements set forth in the Montgomery
County Ordinance, with the maximum length of the proposed antennas being 72" for a total
volume of 6.37 ft³.

The maximum effective radiated power (Max ERP) for this installation falls under the
maximum permissible exposure limits set forth by the FCC and as a result is categorically
excluded from a detailed environmental analysis.

We recommend this application on the condition that the applicant obtains Board of Education
approval to enter into a lease agreement.

AirScale Dual RRH 4T4R B12/14 320W AHLBA
Capacity, performance, low total cost of ownership and investment protection

Nokia AirScale Remote Radio Head (RRH) AHLBA supports Band 12 and Band 14 - full bands from
4 TX/RX ports - along with 4×4 MIMO and 256 QAM modulation to deliver higher data rates.

It offers Nokia’s unique book mounting for faster roll out and radio-integrated Passive
Intermodulation (PIM) cancellation for enhanced network performance.

Capacity and performance


The AirScale dual RRH 4T4R delivers 80W per antenna port, sharable between the two bands
(4x80W, 320W total TX power output). The radio supports 256 QAM modulation
in the downlink (DL) for up to 30 percent higher
throughput. The Virtual Spectrum Analyzer feature
enables both uplink and downlink spectrum to be
analyzed.

Low total cost of ownership


With light weight and zero-bolt book mounting, AirScale dual
RRH 4T4R allows operators to achieve faster roll outs and
more cost-effective installation and maintenance of
radios and tower space.

Investment protection
AirScale dual RRH 4T4R is compatible with the AirScale System
Module, offering a complete base station solution to address the
present and future capacity and connectivity needs.

ALCATEL-LUCENT RRH4X25-WCS

The Alcatel-Lucent RRH4x25-WCS is the new addition of Remote Radio Head to


the extended product line of Alcatel-Lucent’s distributed Base Station solution,
aimed at facilitating the RF site acquisition and civil engineering.

Supporting 2Tx/4Tx MIMO and 4 ways Rx diversity, it allows North


American operators to have a compact radio solution to deploy LTE in the new
Wireless Communication Services band (WCS - 2.3 GHz, 3GPP band 30),
providing them with the means to achieve high capacity, high quality and high
coverage with minimum site requirements.

The Alcatel-Lucent RRH4x25-WCS product has four transmit RF paths,


delivering either 4x25 or 2x50 W RF output power, and four receive RF paths. It
supports 4Rx diversity and offers the possibility to select, just by Software, 2Tx
or 4Tx MIMO configurations with an instantaneous bandwidth of either 5MHz or
10MHz.

The Alcatel-Lucent RRH4x25-WCS is a near zero-footprint solution and operates


noise free, simplifying negotiations with site property owners and minimizing
environmental impacts. Installation can easily be done by a single person
because the Alcatel-Lucent RRH4x25-WCS is compact and weights less than 30
kg, eliminating the need for a crane to hoist the equipment to the rooftop.

Thanks to its small sizes and weight, the Alcatel-Lucent RRH4x25-WCS can be
installed close to the antenna. Operators can therefore locate the Alcatel-Lucent
RRH4x25-WCS where RF engineering is deemed ideal, minimizing trade-offs
between available sites and RF optimum sites. The RF feeder and installation
costs are reduced or even eliminated.

FEATURES
• Operating in 2.3 GHz band (WCS, 3GPP band 30)
• LTE 2Tx or 4Tx MIMO (switchable) and 4Rx Diversity
• Output power: Up to 2x50W or 4x25W
• Convection-cooled (fan-less)
• Supports AISG 2.0 ALD devices (RET, TMA) through RS485 or RF ports

BENEFITS
• Compact to reduce additional footprint when adding LTE in WCS band
• MIMO scheme operation selection (2Tx or 4Tx) by Software only
• Improves Downlink spectral efficiency through MIMO4
• Increases LTE coverage thanks to 4RxDiv capability and best in class Rx sensitivity
• Easy installation, with a unit that can be carried and set up by one person
• Flexible mounting options: Pole/Wall/Floor

in the downlink (DL) for up to 30 percent higher
throughput. The Virtual Spectrum Analyzer feature
enables both uplink and downlink spectrum to be
analyzed.

Low total cost of ownership


With light weight and zero-bolt book mounting, AirScale dual
RRH 4T4R allows operators to achieve faster roll outs and
more cost-effective installation and maintenance of
radios and tower space.

Investment protection
AirScale dual RRH 4T4R is compatible with the AirScale System
Module, offering a complete base station solution to address the
present and future capacity and connectivity needs.

ALCATEL-LUCENT RRH4X25-WCS

The Alcatel-Lucent RRH4x25-WCS is the new addition of Remote Radio Head to


the extended product line of Alcatel-Lucent’s distributed Base Station solution,
aimed at facilitating the RF site acquisition and civil engineering.

Supporting 2Tx/4Tx MIMO and 4 ways Rx diversity, it allows North


American operators to have a compact radio solution to deploy LTE in the new
Wireless Communication Services band (WCS - 2.3 GHz, 3GPP band 30),
providing them with the means to achieve high capacity, high quality and high
coverage with minimum site requirements.

The Alcatel-Lucent RRH4x25-WCS product has four transmit RF paths,


delivering either 4x25 or 2x50 W RF output power, and four receive RF paths. It
supports 4Rx diversity and offers the possibility to select, just by Software, 2Tx
or 4Tx MIMO configurations with an instantaneous bandwidth of either 5MHz or
10MHz.

The Alcatel-Lucent RRH4x25-WCS is a near zero-footprint solution and operates


noise free, simplifying negotiations with site property owners and minimizing
environmental impacts. Installation can easily be done by a single person
because the Alcatel-Lucent RRH4x25-WCS is compact and weights less than 30
kg, eliminating the need for a crane to hoist the equipment to the rooftop.

Thanks to its small sizes and weight, the Alcatel-Lucent RRH4x25-WCS can be
installed close to the antenna. Operators can therefore locate the Alcatel-Lucent
RRH4x25-WCS where RF engineering is deemed ideal, minimizing trade-offs
between available sites and RF optimum sites. The RF feeder and installation
costs are reduced or even eliminated.

FEATURES
• Operating in 2.3 GHz band (WCS, 3GPP band 30)
• LTE 2Tx or 4Tx MIMO (switchable) and 4Rx Diversity
• Output power: Up to 2x50W or 4x25W
• Convection-cooled (fan-less)
• Supports AISG 2.0 ALD devices (RET, TMA) through RS485 or RF ports

BENEFITS
• Compact to reduce additional footprint when adding LTE in WCS band
• MIMO scheme operation selection (2Tx or 4Tx) by Software only
• Improves Downlink spectral efficiency through MIMO4
• Increases LTE coverage thanks to 4RxDiv capability and best in class Rx sensitivity
• Easy installation, with a unit that can be carried and set up by one person
• Flexible mounting options: Pole/Wall/Floor
