Upgrades to support 5G coverage

VolkerSmart Technologies is working in partnership with Ontix, to supply additional power points to council owned assets for the London Borough of Sutton. This will enable the delivery of Next-Generation Wireless Infrastructure (5G), improving mobile phone coverage across the borough for both residents and local businesses.  

VolkerSmart Technologies is using the existing council-owned lamp columns to add power points at height, whilst providing additional electrical upgrades as required. This will enable new small cell mobile infrastructure to be deployed by Ontix. The upgrades will not only boost connectivity but will also improve the experience of mobile device users within the borough.

"I am delighted that VolkerSmart Technologies is helping to improve 5G wireless coverage in the London Borough of Sutton, alongside our programme of lighting and electrical improvements. The new upgrades will bring great benefits for both residents and visitors to the borough."
