With the ever-increasing demand for more data through mobile devices there is a need to implement new technologies to handle the increased traffic. Among the tools available to the broadband industry is the use of small cell technology. By using small cells, a mobile network can improve both coverage and capacity. Whether a MSO is providing backhaul services to a MNO or is entering the wireless market, the small cell concept can be a valuable technology. However, due to the controversy surrounding the health risks in the immediate vicinity of the radiating signal many municipalities are requiring a power disconnect switch to shut the small cell off when workers are present on the pole or within the immediate area.
