IEEE White Paper

Establishing Consistency in Joint Use Applications with 5G Wireless Facilities

This white paper identifies areas of opportunity, growth, efficiency, and change in the following areas: -Identify what constitutes a proper structural candidate for small cell antenna attachments -Develop a roadmap for an application that contains the key milestones and the necessary information to be considered and addressed during the application process by the stakeholders -Aid pole and structure owners in establishing joint use guidelines regarding attachment requests -Establish requirements of a complete facility/site survey and applicable acceptance/rejection response to applicants -Identify and establish solutions associated with antenna service metering and maintenance -Achieve compliance with FCC, PUC/PSC, and industry best practices -Make recommendations for realignment of NESC(R), NEC(R), and other applicable codes and standard requirements to address conflicts -Make recommendations for national telecommunication worker certification -Align national, state, and local regulatory concerns and expectations Attaching wireless facilities to existing joint use poles is the primary focus of this white paper. However, the issues addressed within and the technical concerns reviewed will usually apply to proposed wireless attachments to streetlights, traffic lights, other street furniture, towers, buildings, and other vertical structures where space is available.
