TE Connectivity combining power, fiber into one system for small cell backhaul

A major problem impacting small cell placement is that there is often no power in the location where a carrier wants to locate a small cell, or if there is power, it can only be delivered following complicated negotiations with building owners, utility companies or municipalities. TE Connectivity is trying to tackle those issues with a new system that combines a power supply and optical fiber communications into a single system, eliminating the need for local power to small cells.
