ATIS to Develop New Power Standard for 5G Small Cells
Tuesday, June 02, 2020 | Comments

The Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS) began development of a new power standard to expedite the deployment of 5G, small cells and other distributed networks. The work addresses the need for a standard for remotely powering distributed devices that consume more than the 100-watt constraint identified by other industry standards.

Small cells are key enablers of 5G and LTE networks. Deploying thousands of new devices requires innovations in power technology, as well as engineering and installation practices. Current standards do not address these devices' high power consumption requirements.

"ATIS has developed many of the key standards and solutions that are central to 5G networks," said ATIS President and CEO Susan Miller. "With our specialized distributed power systems work, we expand on these comprehensive 5G requirements — in this case, to address the evolution of the network's power needs."

The forthcoming ATIS standard is expected to take at least a year to develop.
