New Company nepsa solutions is ‘Making Cities Smarter;’ Helping Communities, Mobile Network Operators Implement Small Cell Wireless Technology

Municipalities and mobile network operators have a new resource in the movement to create smart cities: nepsa solutions. Focused on executing cost-effective, aesthetically pleasing solutions, the company positions itself as an intermediary, with technology, advice and a voice of reason that’s sometimes absent in the rush to implement small cell wireless technology, explains President David A. Wigdahl.

“Community officials are being bombarded by carriers offering a wide variety of small cell wireless solutions, some good and some not-so-good. The choices can be overwhelming, and there’s a lot of pressure to ‘just pick one’ and move on – even if the choice is ugly or overpriced,” he says.

“Carriers, meanwhile, are seeing a backlash against unsightly installations, as municipalities move forward with the technology.”

Small cell wireless, Wigdahl says, provides immediate benefits for the exploding numbers of urban and suburban residents demanding 5G networks for their data-hungry devices. The technology also offers the potential for a host of future enhancements, such as energy management, law enforcement and entertainment.

“Importantly, there’s an opportunity for municipalities to generate revenue by leasing the poles to mobile network operators and other service providers,” he says.

Referencing “Not in My Front Yard” ordinances and litigation resulting from ugly or poorly sited installations, Wigdahl, with decades of experience in wireless site construction and cell site maintenance, describes the KitsticK™, nepsa solutions’ kitted product, as a “better alternative.” The poles are aesthetically pleasing, environmentally friendly, and priced competitively. “Locating a cell site ‘somewhere else’ because it’s unattractive can leave people without access to the 5G networks they’re demanding,” he says.

For those seeking a customized product, nepsa solutions has partnered with Sternberg Lighting. The designer and manufacturer of decorative street lighting and architectural street furniture can create and build custom or historically accurate poles to meet customers’ most stringent requirements. Sternberg products are well-received by public works officials across the country and are in use nationwide in streetscapes, downtown revitalization projects, parks, train stations, shopping centers, colleges, banks and more.

Offerings from nepsa solutions include:

  • the KitsticK™,
  • custom pole solutions,
  • fixed pricing,
  • help with navigating the zoning and permit process,
  • cutting-edge logistics, with online ordering and delivery,
  • full-service, licensed professional engineers available, and
  • project and construction management.

“We have long-term relationships with major telecom and utilities suppliers, the industry knowledge and expertise, and the financial strength to facilitate rapid deployment and expansion to create ‘smart cities,’” Wigdahl says.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value.

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...
According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020.
