5G-Enabled Smart Cities Bring Opportunities for Pultruded Composites

September 09 2019

According to a new report from the European Pultrusion Technology Association (EPTA), to realize the potential of the 5G next-generation mobile networks in data-hungry cities a dense network of 5G small cells will be needed, bringing opportunities for pultruded composites in 5G radomes and base stations as well as concepts such as smart lighting poles.

The EPTA industry briefing, an expanded role for pultruded composites in 5G cities, outlines how the roll out of 5G will drive increased adoption of composite materials in urban infrastructure. The EPTA report highlights an emerging solution for 5G small cells which is set for strong growth – ‘connected light poles’ or ‘smart poles.’

Dr. Elmar Witten, Secretary of EPTA notes, “The need to ensure reliable 5G coverage in buildings and outside brings additional motivation for the integration of RF-transparent pultruded composites into urban design.“
