Hello world, the Internet of Things – 5G for short, is coming. It’s a world where everything is connected: people to people; people to devices; devices to devices. To achieve inter-connectivity of smart devices, service providers will need to install hardware to transmit and receive high frequency radio signals. In the 4G world of today, service providers transmit using low frequency radio waves that can travel relatively long distances. The antennae that receive and relay the signals are often mounted on towers that can be kilometers [miles] apart. In the 5G world, the antennae will have to be metres [yards], not kilometres [miles], apart. Antennae will be more numerous and situated locally, perhaps on existing utility poles or affixed to buildings, bridges or sign structures. In many cases, for example metal or concrete light poles, bridges, or metal sign structures, drilling and fastening with bolts or screws will not be an option due to the risk of structural damage or electrical code violation. In these situations, stainless steel banding is an ideal fastening solution. Stainless steel banding is durable and will withstand weather extremes of temperature, wind and precipitation. When properly wrapped around a structural element, it causes no damage to the element. In addition, it can be roughed in, before final tensioning and cut-off, to permit antennae to be positioned or repositioned to complete the network.
