Ericsson says that it has partnered with Saudi Telecom Company (STC) for the deployment of the "Ericsson Tower Tube" in 8 different sites in Princess Noura University in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
The Ericsson Tower Tube solution supports the full spectra of antennas and radio equipment and can also house substantially more antennas and micro-wave dishes compared with a traditional tower solution.
The tower's concrete exterior provides a stable internal environment while simultaneously protecting all equipment from adverse weather conditions and vandalism. The Ericsson Tower Tube also opens up for passive infra-structure sharing for example multi-operator sites.
