Powering Your Cell Tower

Brian Brouillette, Senior VP of Intelligent Site Management and Worldwide Services, Westell Technologies

Bill Crandall, Principal, Spearfish Innovation

Historically, cell tower power was a lot like the electrical grid: essential, reliable, taken for granted, a tad dull.Until now.Today, cell tower power is an exciting source of technical and business innovation running at an ever-faster tempo. Global climate change is driving the evolution of renewable green energy (e.g., solar, wind, hydrogen fuel cells), government regulations (e.g., carbon credits), and disasterpreparedness (e.g., hardening measurement and control systems before the next massive earthquake or tsunami hits). Further, the Internet of Things (IoT) can only scale up to the massive scale required if cheap, reliable power is available on demand.
