DENSE AIR PORTUGAL HAS SIGNED A MOU WITH THE MUNICIPAL COUNCIL OF CASCAIS TO LAUNCH A 5G SMART CITY ‘PROOF OF CONCEPT’ NETWORK. THIS WILL ENABLE FOR THE TESTING OF USES SUCH AS AUTONOMOUS VEHICLES, INDUSTRIAL IOT AND IMMERSIVE EDUCATION.
The project foresees the installation of a 5G Macro Cell at a centrally located building of the municipality and strategically placed small cells to enhance the end user quality of experience and demonstrate pervasive 5G coverage.
Also part of the agreement are 5G test and validation demonstrations at the Digital Innovation Hub within Nova University in Carcavelos. Dense Air Portugal aims to complement and enhance services provided by mobile network operators by deploying ‘neutral host’ small cells in dedicated licensed radio spectrum (3.6 GHz band).

RAN (Radio Access Network) interfaces that support interoperability between different vendors’ equipment encouraging innovation and offering greater network flexibility at a lower cost than the traditional closed and expensive single-vendor alternative.
Shared physical infrastructure—radios, antennas, switches—and either shared or licensed spectrum available securely to multiple carriers and service providers.
A network of tall towers that transmit low bandwidth radio signals across a multi-mile geographic radius.
A network of low-powered radios discreetly mounted on street poles, buildings, or indoors near end-user consumption that transmit high bandwidth, targeted radio signals across a radius of hundreds or thousands of feet.
Hard-to-reach network boundaries with the weakest signal strength and highest interference where demand is highest and the macro signals are poorest.
Base stations that connect with users’ LTE and 5G handsets.
