Satcen installs its first smart telecommunications booth.

The CIFP San Jorge in Santurtzi (Bizkaia) has an innovative mobile telephony and micro CPD station that represents the first success case of the Basque company Sacen. This intelligent booth represents an improvement in preventive maintenance and energy consumption.

The company, an expert in telecommunications, invented a few years ago this transportable and self-supporting infrastructure with easy and fast assembly, which represents a considerable cost saving in the operational costs of this type of technology deployment. The intelligent booth includes everything needed for a multi-operator mobile telephony base station and CPD infrastructure, from equipment, electronics, cooling, masts for antennas, and RRUs for all operators.

The first success case of Sacen has been installed in the technological area of the San Jorge vocational training center in Santurtzi, which has a telecommunications module and another one for renewable energies. The center will use this personally and is already working with some communication systems of its own, such as an FM broadcaster, among others.

In collaboration with the technological center, they have added an energy efficiency feature to the project by including a hydrogen fuel cell to power the installation, making it an environmentally friendly telecommunications station. In addition, the booth has a contribution of solar panels and a vertical axis wind turbine.

“We hope that this first success case will be widely accepted. We are pioneers in an installation of this 100% green,” adds Mikel Centeno, co-founder of Sacen.

The advantages of this system are several: it represents an improvement in performance, facilitating energy savings and remote control of systems. In addition to its quick installation, which takes 9 hours, it has the ability to bring together all operators in the same place, is multi-purpose, transportable, and saves on the maintenance and future deployments of mobile operators’ 4 and 5G infrastructures.

“In the Santurtzi installation, a single operator, with no risk of height or falls and without carrying equipment, can install and integrate 5G in two hours without adaptations or structural reinforcements, nothing like the time it would take in a conventional installation,” Centeno asserts.

Sacen will showcase its pioneering project at the AOTEC telecommunications and digitalization fair next month in Bilbao and they expect the success case to be well received in order to consider future investments. They are confident in the positive impact of the project to expand internationally, where they believe this kind of movable solutions that can operate without grid energy are better appreciated.

Sacen was founded in 2013 with the aim of designing and developing self-supporting multi-operator infrastructures. The company’s constant innovation has culminated in the first success case of its parent project.
