London’s Angel Court gets multi-operator 4G mobile coverage

The Angel Court development in London now has what is claimed to be UK’s first multi-operator digital DAS-based managed mobile 4G connectivity service, courtesy of developer Stanhope and network service provider the Freshwave Group.

The two companies have deployed a comprehensive 4G system, delivering high-quality mobile signal with minimum download speeds of 60Mbps and up to 200Mbps by connecting occupiers to leading UK mobile operators throughout the 300,000 sq ft building.

Poor quality mobile coverage is a major problem in modern buildings, which benefit from new environmentally friendly building materials and techniques that have the side effect of blocking mobile signals.

Angel Court is a recently completed 24-storey, mixed-use tower in the heart of London, which combines work and outdoor areas. Stanhope worked with the Freshwave Group’s indoor connectivity team StrattoOpencell to deploy an indoor mobile service providing occupiers, employees and visitors connectivity across all floors.

StrattoOpencell has delivered a neutral host managed service using mobile small cells and digital Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS). Using technology approved for use by all four UK mobile network operators, it’s now possible to deliver 2G, 3G and 4G coverage with dedicated backhaul and an upgrade path to future 5G compatibility indoors.
